Managing Compliance for Maximum Adherence and Security

Ensuring that a system is compliant with industry standards and regulations can be a challenge. This is especially true when well-defined standards are not followed. Recently, one of our clients was facing challenges with compliance on their server. After the server was built and handed over to our team, we identified multiple compliance issues that needed to be addressed in order to make sure the system was secure and protected from potential threats. 

The Problems We Discovered 

When we took a closer look at the system, we found that there were many IDs still active on the system even after the users had left the organization. Open ports on the server also resulted in exposure to unwanted traffic, which further increased security risk. Additionally, our audit discovered that none of the corrective actions from previous audits had been performed, making the environment vulnerable.

Our Solution

In order to ensure that our client’s system was compliant with industry standards, BTC created an exhaustive checklist to analyze vulnerabilities and harden the system accordingly. We also disabled all unnecessary accounts and regularly monitored them for any suspicious activity. All open ports were closed or blocked off so they were no longer exposed to external threats. Finally, we set up automated processes for regular auditing and monitoring of user access rights to ensure that only authorized personnel could access sensitive data or make changes on their system.

At BTC, we understand how important it is for businesses to protect their systems from potential security threats. That is why we strive to help our clients manage their compliance issues in an efficient manner so they can rest assured knowing their data is safe and secure from any unauthorized access or malicious attacks. With our expert guidance and comprehensive solutions, you can be sure your systems are always compliant with industry standards while maintaining maximum security at all times.
