Ensuring that your small to midsize company’s IT and data security meets criteria from various regulatory agencies is probably something you dread. In fact, we’re willing to bet that most small to midsize business leaders would rather get a root canal than think about IT compliance!
At Tech Eagles, we get your frustration—but we also “get” regulatory compliance. And we utilize our expertise to simplify compliance, protect sensitive data, and help you manage risk for your Tennessee, Virginia, or Florida business.
If achieving and maintaining compliance standards are causing you to tear your hair out, we’re here to take this complex requirement off your plate!
More industries than ever before have mandatory compliance regulations that they must meet. There are state-specific data breach laws, as well as federal and industry compliances like PCI-DSS protecting payment card transactions and HIPAA regulating healthcare data. And the rules change frequently.
Not sure if you’re keeping up? It’s time for Tech Eagles. Our IT compliance solutions make monitoring and managing compliance a snap—even as rules change.
In short, even if you’re not subject to compliance rules for things like HIPAA or PCI-DSS, laws surrounding how businesses handle any type of PII (personally identifiable information) are getting more stringent all the time as online privacy concerns become more pronounced.
Your vendors, customers, and even your employees don’t want their personal data leaked to cybercriminals.
From your perspective as a business owner or manager, you also don’t want your confidential data about your operations, employees, and customers—such as trade secrets, HR files, financial records, and credit card info—falling into unauthorized hands. In addition, if you are subject to IT compliance regulations now, even a small data breach could lead to expensive fines.
The good news is, when you trust an experienced managed IT service provider like Tech Eagles to handle your regulatory compliance, you don’t have to worry!
Not sure of your compliance status with any of these regulations or need compliance services for other standards not listed here?
Tech Eagles is ready to help.
Wikipedia puts it like this: “Regulatory compliance describes the goal that organizations aspire to achieve in their efforts to ensure that they are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws, policies, and regulations.” But complying needs to be more than just an aspiration. There can be very real consequences—namely catastrophic data loss and associated fines—to not complying with established regulations.
It’s a fact. Ensuring that information remains secure and confidential is not a responsibility anyone should take lightly. But small to midsize business leaders typically need some help in making this goal a reality, which is where Tech Eagles can be a game-changer for your business’s personal data protection efforts.
The primary focus of IT compliance services is on protecting regulated data handled and stored by a company. There are dozens of regulatory frameworks today, and your business may be subject to rules you don’t even know about! In contrast, data protection is a clear set of technical systems, tools, and processes implemented to protect and defend your information and technology assets.
So, these services and tools go hand in hand—and Tech Eagles can help you protect all of your data, whether it’s sensitive or not. Many small to midsize businesses find that they can outsource both compliance management and data protection to a capable managed IT service provider and stop worrying whether any data they keep or handle might be compromised or lost.
The short answer to this question is: you don’t. Expertly handling a compliance audit as a small to midsize business leader is nearly impossible without guidance. It takes countless hours to research and understand—and that’s before performing the audit.
Because this work will likely fall on an IT manager who is already busy with other equally critical day-to-day responsibilities, vital pieces of the compliance process could be missed. And this is what leads to data breaches and/or fines from regulatory agencies. Don’t risk it—call Tech Eagles!
Yes. Most data breaches in businesses of all sizes are caused by well-meaning employees who “didn’t know better” and fell for social engineering or other phishing attacks that led to installing malware, ransomware, or spyware that hackers use to steal your data.
