EAID: InfoSec Compliance Assessments
Compliance assessments security infrastructure can seem daunting. Traditional assessments are done manually, with spreadsheets and word documents for a relatively small number of compliance policies. This manual process is error-prone and can take six months to a year to complete with no visibility until the handwritten report shows up.
The EAID (Enterprise Assessment and InfoSec Design) Platform includes an assessment tool that provides visibility, automation and completeness of your compliance needs. This platform can be deployed in less than two hours. Infosec assessments can be created, and your assessors can begin validating completeness and effectiveness of security controls within that same time.
Pre-built Standards-Based Policy Templates for Completeness
To ensure completeness of your compliance assessment, EAID comes with over 1,800 policy templates based directly on the compliance manuals for over 10 governances and frameworks like NIST, HIPAA, ISO, PCI, FISMA, FFIEC, GDPR and many others. Each policy comes with 4-6 questions to validate completeness and effectiveness of the security controls. Assessments can consist of compliance policy templates from the governance manuals or security controls can be selected and modified based on existing company compliance requirements.
Automation 10X Faster
The EAID platform automates the assessment workflow for each compliance policy. The SaaS platform allows assessors to answer questions at their convenience and upload supporting information for their answers. Assessors can also redirect questions to other team members where appropriate. Reports can be generated instantly, with up-to the minute information of compliance and completeness.
The EAID dashboard is the crystal ball of visibility into your information security vulnerability and risks, along with insights into your security posture and compliance completeness. It includes color-coded charts and graphs to quickly understand the current standing of compliance for each policy and the assessment progress of each department. Additionally, you can drill down into the details of departments and compliance policy standings for further understanding and reporting. Remediation projects are also tracked in the dashboard to show task progress, hours used, and resources utilized.
Migration from Manual Flows
For companies migrating from a manual assessment methodology, EAID can make it easy to automate and expedite their process. It’s easy to find standards-based security controls within the platform that match-up with existing policies. These policies can be adopted for an assessment ‘as is’ or modified to be company specific. In many cases you will find additional policies that augment your company’s existing security controls, strengthening your compliance completeness.
