Compliance is the process whereby the Board satisfies itself that the business is running in accordance with its defined Governance Model.
TrustedIA provides a range of Compliance and Audit services for your business.
Design Assurance helps to ensure that the design of a system is structured, developed and implemented in a way so that it meets the expectations of the final program’s performance. Undertaken correctly it means the system designs comply with your architectural principles and standards, addresses the business needs, complies with any legal or regulatory requirements and represents best practice, and the best value for money.
The Design Assurance service from TrustedIA provides confirmation that any proposed design (from your system integrator, service partner or internal development teams) complies with your requirements, principles, policies, quality standards and guidelines.
Our services can be tailored to a specific project or programme of work, or we can be commissioned on a cost effective retainer basis for longer term engagement. Whatever help you need, or procurement route you prefer, our professional Design Assurance experts will work closely with the relevant business functions (e.g. manufacturing / engineering / finance) and any regulatory personnel (internal and / or external), and we’ll verify your architecture platforms:
1. Do you have to comply with any Legal or Regulatory requirements?
2. Are your customers asking you to prove any form of compliance?
3. Do you adhere to, or have ambitions to adhere to, industry standards?
4. Do you require assurance that any implemented controls or mitigations are effective?
If any of these questions resonate with you, or perhaps you are just looking for peace of mind that the business is managing risks within an agreed risk appetite level, TrustedIA can provide professional, independent advice.
TrustedIA will help you determine your level of compliance against internal and /or other standards by conducting an independent audit of your people, processes, information, technology and / or facilities. This is especially useful when evaluating the effectiveness of existing controls. Our findings may identify areas requiring substantial attention or may simply recommend minor modifications to ensure the level of compliance sought can be achieved.
If you require an independent audit to satisfy any of these scenarios (ISO27001, PCI DSS etc.,) or if you just need to verify that you are investing effectively, then we can provide subject matter experts to conduct an audit, including:
Compliance should not be seen as a burden; if the process is focused on preserving, protecting and promoting business value (including reputation) then the benefits can be very positive, not least in providing a competitive advantage.
