Framework-based Compliance Standards for Your Organization

Every organization has compliance standards they are required to meet. When it comes to selecting a provider that can help with these regulations, it’s important to consider the approach to pursuing compliance. 

The Tego Approach

Scoping the environment is critical to proper execution of any framework. Tego carefully considers the appropriate framework necessary for your organization’s compliance strategy. These frameworks include, but are not limited to:

Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) This audit report attests to the trustworthiness of services a service organization provides. It is commonly used to assess the risks associated with outsourced software solutions that store customer data online. Tego has extensive experience in helping clients achieve a successful SOC 2 attestation for all trust principles. A successful SOC 2 attestation provides a globally recognized validation of your internal security, availability and confidentiality safeguards.  The process is rigorous, but successful completion differentiates the organization and formalizes controls desired by customers, insurance companies and regulators.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) – ISO offers many international standards for managing information security. The standards contain a framework of policies and procedures that includes all administrative, physical and technical controls involved in an organization’s information risk management processes. In most cases, ISO frameworks are better for international companies. Tego provides a roadmap for ISO certifications up to and including the audit services for successful field work as well as surveillance audits required to maintain certifications. 

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) – A physical sciences lab and non-regulatory agency, NIST issues compliance framework policies and guidelines for all industries. Tego follows the guidance of NIST 800-171 as it pertains to safeguarding Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in IT networks of government contractors and subcontractors. Additionally, Tego utilizes NIST 800-53 control guidelines for securing federal information systems. These controls are the operational, technical, and management standards and guidelines used by information systems to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
