Frameworks-web

Map security activities to one or more framework or compliance requirement

There are over 100 standards and regulations covered by the Ostendio MyVCM platform. These include the popular SOC2, HITRUST and FedRAMP.  You can optimize your current security program by moving all your documents onto the Ostendio MyVCM platform where you can track them against your chosen standards.

Track document versions/approvals/acknowledgements

Don’t waste time chasing people for approvals and acknowledgements of documents you have sent.  The Ostendio MyVCM platform has a full document management function covering version control and approvals. It issues reminders and clearly shows who has given approvals or made updates.

Prepare for an audit to one or more standard or regulation

When all your documentation and evidence is stored in one place, it is catalogued, available real-time and accessible to employees internally and to external auditors, you will see how streamlined audit preparation can be.

Build a culture of security in your organization

By using the Ostendio MyVCM platform you have access to security training for all employees.  Training should not be a one-off.  All employees must be trained regularly, inline with their responsibilities and level of data access per the security and compliance requirements being followed. A recent report said 59% of employees are not confident they could identify a social engineering attack - this clearly shows how critical regular training can be to protect your company. Security training is most successful when it becomes a part of your company culture and the responsibility of all employees.

Track and manage assets

Asset management has become more important with the growing number of remote workers. The Ostendio MyVCM asset module allows the busy CISO to understand what assets your company has and who has access to them. Assets can be logged, traceable and you can control who has access to different systems.

As the CISO you will have a clear view across all departments, geographies and teams. Using the Ostendio MyVCM platform you will be able to manage by exception rather than spending your time following up with each individual to ensure the work is done.

Extend your security reach to vendors

Now you’ve established your own security program it is time to extend it to your vendors. The Ostendio MyVCM Auditor Connect module offers a uniform vendor security program that scales, regardless of the number of vendors you might have. It offers customizable security questionnaires with evidence associated with the questionnaire stored and easily available to auditors. By including your vendors in your security program you are ensuring that anyone who has access to your data is handling it inline with established regulations and standards.
