Compliance Assessments

What are Ntirety Compliance Assessments?
Ntirety Compliance Risk Assessments provide clarity into your current and ongoing compliance posture. Our compliance experts will assess the existing environments for gaps in systems and processes, and then assemble strategies to mitigate risk and assist in achieving compliance.

Types of Compliance Assessments:
Ntirety offers compliance risk assessments to help your organization meet ever-changing compliance regulations for PCI DSS, HIPPA, HITRUST CSF, FERPA, and GDPR.

Gap Assessment – At the beginning of your engagement, a Ntirety Compliance Analyst will perform a gap analysis to evaluate your current environment and provide the steps your organization will need to take to meet your desired level of compliance.

Ongoing assessments – During your engagement with Ntirety, our compliance analyst will periodically perform a risk assessment to check in on your compliance lifecycle, how are you measuring up, and where you need to focus your risk mitigation activities.

Annual Risk Assessment – At the Premier level only, a Ntirety Compliance Analyst performs an annual assessment evaluating regulatory information to determine applicability of the regulations and your organization’s compliance risk. Following the assessment, Ntirety will provide suggestions on key areas for improvement.

Risk Assessment Reports – Ntirety Risk Assessment Reports present and summarize the results of your risk assessment and allow your organization the opportunity to review the information collected and perform risk mitigation activities to remedy or minimize your overall risk. The structure and process these risk assessments allow your organization to prioritize mitigation efforts, create benchmarks for effectively tracking the benefits of mitigation strategies, and help identify security vulnerabilities, inefficiencies, and non-compliances.
