Just hearing the words "regulatory compliance" can make you want to hide under your desk. Yet it's something today's business owner and CIO cannot ignore. Over the past decade, major legislation has been passed affecting the storage requirements and data management of public companies, medical care providers and financial institutions. To ensure you meet the standards on every major U.S. regulation, call on the network security management team at Network Infrastructure Technology for help.
We can set up or alter your current computer networking systems to comply with all the major regulations like these:
HIPAA - Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
What it is: This regulation affects virtually every area of health-related organizations in the U.S. HIPAA was set forth to standardize privacy and protection of all health information. HIPAA requires the ability to establish and maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to ensure integrity, confidentiality, and availability of the information.
How we help: Our network security management teams are highly experienced in maintaining the integrity and confidentiality for entire healthcare systems. We have been doing it for years and have served some of the largest, most prestigious hospitals in the world. Don't wait any longer to protect your patients' invaluable electronic data.
SOX - Sarbanes-Oxley Act
What it is: This is one of the most important and controversial laws impacting public corporations. It was passed as a result of several major accounting scandals including Enron and Tyco International. The purpose of SOX is to protect investors and requires accounting firms to comply with stringent rules regarding what records must be maintained, how long relevant material must be maintained, accounting procedures requirements, and consequences for failure to follow the Act.
How we help: Since we are fully knowledgeable in enterprise network security, we are your best ally in SOX compliance. We help you maintain the appropriate transaction and audit trails; we maintain data for not less than seven years; we safeguard information to evade tampering and we make your records/backups totally accessible to you when you need them.
GLB - Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
What it is: The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act affects the financial services industry and allows the consolidation of commercial and investment banks. Its rules are designed to protect the privacy interests of individuals in their interactions with various financial institutions.
How we help: Handling the migration and merging of IT infrastructure, especially of two large corporations, can be somewhat intimidating. Network Technology Infrastructure can handle the entire migration process, keeping vulnerable information completely secure. We provide the administrative, technical and physical safeguards that protect your customers' information from disclosure, alteration or deletion.
SEC/NESD - Securities Exchange Commission/ National Association of Securities Dealers Regulations
What it is: Enacted in the 1930s, this was meant to protect investors from fraudulent or misleading claims. Records were required to be made and kept for the purposes of review and auditing. In 1997, the Commission amended the primary rule to allow brokers and dealers to store records electronically.
How we help: Network security management by Network Infrastructure Technology preserves records in a non-rewriteable, non-erasable format; we verify the quality and accuracy of the recording process; and we time-date for the required period of retention.
