MyVCM

MyVCM Information Security Framework

Ostendio’s proprietary framework, based on leading Industry Standards and Best Practices, is a 5 Stage Process, designed to guide organizations through developing and implementing a robust and comprehensive cybersecurity and risk management process. Clients completing the process have a comprehensive framework to manage their information security and risk and will be ready for a risk assessment or audit by a client or regulator. Ostendio Consultants can take you through the entire process or through individual stages.
Tasks

Risk Assessments

Conducting regular risk assessments is a critical part of an effective cyber security and risk management process. Identifying areas of vulnerability and implementing a plan to address those vulnerabilities will prevent an organization from being caught off guard. Ostendio offers Business Impact Assessments (BIA), Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) and comprehensive Risk Assessments.

Why do organizations bring in Professional Services help?

There are many reasons why bringing in experts to help your organization makes sense but here are the top 5 reasons why you should get extra professional help:

  • Incremental support

When your IT team is already busy bringing in a Professional Services team can speed up the audit process by assisting your team or even driving the audit process for you.  

  • Resources that understand the platform you are using and the Ostendio MyVCM approach.

Ostendio has developed a tried and trusted approach to preparing for and passing an audit.  By using a team of professionals who understand the platform and how to optimize it for a complex audit, you will save time and money. 

  • Experts who understand multiple security frameworks

It is becoming more common for companies to undertake audits to more than one security framework. By using a Professional Services team they will be able to show you which frameworks are most relevant to your business, and how much extra work is involved in order to handle multiple frameworks. 

  • Experts who have relationships with audit partners and experience working with them

Good relationships, understanding and teamwork are essential when undergoing a complex audit.   Ostendio Professional Services team has worked successfully with multiple audit firms and can help you with your selection process. Even though the audit criteria might be the same, every auditor approaches it in their own unique way. We have incorporated our audit partners proprietary templates into Ostendio MyVCM and are already familiar with them.

  •   Audits are not one and done

Most audits like HITRUST and SOC2 require you to collect on-going evidence to maintain certification.  Ostendio’s Professional Services resources will work with you to ensure you are collecting this evidence as part of your core process so that when you are ready to conduct your next audit it is much easier to complete than the first time.

What do our customers say?

"We are a "growing teenage startup" that has to make the transition into a larger and more organized company. SOC2 Type 2 is our goal, but honestly we wouldn't have known how to really get going. Ostendio's professional services have thus far exceeded expectations, the advice they've provided coupled with the real work they've done has 100% enabled us to start this journey with a good probability of success."
