You don’t want to discover when your auditors arrive that your IT systems and processes need major projects to become compliant with critical regulatory standards.
With proper planning, you can build compliance into your IT and security systems as you go, instead of as an afterthought. IT leaders with experience in the full life-cycle of emerging life sciences know what’s coming and help you prepare in parallel.
Each industry has its own unique set of rules and regulations overseen by government agencies or industry governing bodies. They’re always evolving, impacting what companies must and cannot do. And they all depend heavily on IT, given the central importance of data privacy and integrity. KalioTek designs our managed services and project work with compliance in mind. Some of the compliance certifications and standards we have helped our customers prepare for:
The world of regulatory compliance is an alphabet soup of different standards, laws and frameworks, with more coming all the time. Most companies will need to comply with several at some point. Some examples are:
While there are many different approaches, they all have many fundamental requirements in common: establishing your policies, training your employees and securing your data.
Most compliance regimens don’t tell you what to do or how to do it. For example, HIPAA specifies that you must undergo a security risk assessment and create a remediation plan. It doesn’t give you a strategy or framework to accomplish that. It can be tempting to adopt a checklist mentality and make best case assumptions. This leaves you at risk in the event of a breach or audit.
KalioTek helps our customers build frameworks for many different security and compliance standards by first implementing the policies, procedures and technologies common to them all. We find this covers 80% of requirements you may face. Then we’ll help you build an ongoing security and compliance program tailored to your business that will give you confidence you are meeting this challenge responsibly.
Customers, business partners and investors, not to mention auditors and regulators, increasingly require assurances of compliance. When they do, you’ll be prepared and we’ll be there to assist you with their questions.
