Standardized Control Assessment

Service Overview

A Holistic Tool for Standardized On-Site Risk Management

Many organizations increase their capabilities and productivity by outsourcing tasks to service organizations. However, when business functions are outsourced to third parties, some risk is “outsourced” as well. A Standardized Control Assessment (SCA) helps to limit this risk by ensuring security compliance across 17 clearly defined domains.

The Standardized Control Assessment is a holistic tool for performing standardized onsite risk management assessments, including assessments of cybersecurity, IT, privacy, data security, and business resiliency controls.

Our expert assessors provide comprehensive standardized control assessment services that are customized to the specific needs of your organization. We identify any gaps in your current security systems and processes—including those related to third parties—and provide expert advice and guidance to help you quickly bring your security program into compliance.

For the past four years, we have partnered with MegaplanIT for our annual PCI-DSS Level 1 audit. In addition to that annual work, we have also found them to be a great source of advice and best-practice recommendations; their expertise has helped us conceptualize and plan the robust, secure systems that our customers count on each day. Their team is a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend their people and services.

Our Security Consultant was extremely well organized, knowledgeable , personable and responsive. Our IT Director was extremely satisfied.
