Our expertise will give your customers, employees, shareholders and partners confidence that you have done due diligence and selected the best assessor for the job.
Establish Best Practices
Maintaining PCI compliance is only the first step toward data security. To protect your business against more advanced cyber threats, your company needs to set the bar higher. As part of a Colume assessment, your consultant will score your security maturity and benchmark you against your peers. They will explain your compliance posture and recommend uniform security policies and integrated technologies that can be deployed across your business. These insights will help you make more strategic investments and keep your business safe from evolving risks.
However, security practices are only effective if they’re followed across the board. That’s why Colume works with your staff to ensure they stay in compliance all year long. Our consultants provide quarterly Business-as-Usual (BAU) reviews that help organizations monitor controls and ensure that scans, tests, reviews and other required tasks are completed on schedule. Colume can also help your staff understand the importance of handling data securely. Our online educational courses can teach your team about a variety of topics, from general security awareness to secure development practices and training for technical staff or other specific job roles. Offering this type of training program helps demonstrate your company’s commitment to security, and encourages your teams to stay vigilant all day, every day.
