Securing data and demonstrating compliance to international standards is a business imperative for most organizations, especially those handling sensitive information. As the number of data breaches and the theft of personal information continues to increase, organizations are turning to compliance frameworks such as HITRUST, SOC 2, CMMC, CIS Top 20, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and others to demonstrate their data security and risk management programs. Government regulations such as GDPR in Europe and CCPA in California have also increased the awareness of the need for data privacy.
Ostendio MyVCM™ is an integrated risk management platform that automates security program lifecycles. Organizations that deploy Ostendio MyVCM spend less time and less budget building, operating, and demonstrating internally and externally the efficacy of their security programs. The platform provides a single solution that connects users and requirements from across the enterprise and is backed by the Ostendio Professional Services team to help customers anticipate auditor expectations, ensuring they are adequately prepared, thereby reducing the time and resources spent on an audit. Only Ostendio guarantees customers pass their next security audit the first time, or they will remediate the critical findings free of charge.
