Healthcare
HIPAA compliance reaches more organizations than many people think. Of course physician's practices and hospitals have to comply but there are a lot more providers than that – chiropractors, clinics, dentists, skilled nursing facilities, pharmacies, and psychologists – as well as payers and company health plans. Plus any organization that works with a covered entity's patient data – like attorneys, CPA firms, consultants, IT providers, transcriptionists, pharmacy benefits managers. And, if you work in healthcare, HIPAA isn't the only requirement you have to worry about... you may have to address PCI DSS and state requirements (from California, Massachusetts, New York, and others), too. VSC makes healthcare compliance easier with everything you need to manage security regulations and keep a good security program in place.
Finance
Financial services are, naturally, a leading target for cyber attacks – hackers go where the money is. Every state has its own breach notification requirements and states like California, Massachusetts, and New York are leading the way with more requirements for a formal security program and practices. In New York, for instance, financial service providers have to comply with both DFS cybersecurity regulations and the SHIELD Act. If you accept credit cards, PCI DSS applies. VSC helps you address these requirements with the "building blocks" you need for each – policies, procedures, standards, training and awareness, risk analysis, and reporting. You can spend less time trying to figure out what a cyber security program is and more time doing the rest of your work.
Startups
Even a startup that's still in stealth mode can be a hacker's target. Attackers are probing every system and network on the internet, and new applications are targets as soon as they go online. Any startup that works with individuals' information faces a wide range of cybersecurity requirements – HIPAA, PCI DSS, state breach notification and cybersecurity program regulations, and on and on. Beyond the legal requirements, startups need to prove to potential investors that they take cybersecurity seriously. And new customers often want to know what you are doing to keep data safe – vendor assessments are a fact of life for technology companies today. VSC helps you set up and run a good security program and show customers and investors that they take cybersecurity seriously.
Manufacturing
For hackers, small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) are often the gateways to larger government contractors and agencies. Attackers may want your employee and customer history, financial data, or network access on the path to bigger targets – or they might want the plans and designs you hold for your customers. That's why DFARS (the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) enforces a minimum set of security standards that DoD contractors and sub-contractors must follow. The government wants to make sure everyone in the supply chain is protecting (even unclassified) data. That's not all – state breach notification requirements and cybersecurity requirements from states like California, Massachusetts, and New York mean extra steps for you – because you store personal data for your contacts and employees on your network.
Legal Services
Clients routinely trust their attorneys with sensitive information. That's why hackers find a lot of data worth stealing in a law firm's systems and networks. Firms that work with personal data have to be aware of state breach notification laws and cybersecurity regulations. (And, of course, every firm has an obligation to protect its own employees' data.) Most firms experience "trickle down" regulations – like HIPAA or New York DFS requirements that are passed down from clients who have to comply. And, businesses are now setting their own cybersecurity requirements for their service providers – adding to the expectations for law firms. VSC helps firms put good security practices in place – with simple processes backed by current content covering policies, procedures, standards, training and awareness, risk analysis, and reporting – so you can focus on the rest of your clients' needs.
Education
Parents expect schools to protect their childrens' privacy – so keeping personal data safe is top-of-mind for any educational institution. The federal FERPA law aims to protect the private educational information of students throughout the United States, but its not the only set of cybersecurity rules. Schools face state breach notification and (newer) cybersecurity requirements (from California, Massachusetts, New York, and others) and regulations like HIPAA can reach schools, too. VSC provides a suite of tools that help educational institutions put a good cybersecurity program in place quickly – with policies, procedures, training and awareness, risk analysis, and compliance reporting. Administrators can communicate cybersecurity expectations to faculty while assuring parents that their childrens' data is in good hands.
Non-profits
Every non-profit has an important mission – and many provide services that involve personal and sensitive information about individuals. Even non-profits with limited client information have staff and volunteer data to protect. Because non-profits have diverse roles, the cybersecurity requirements that apply can be wide-ranging. Work with healthcare data and HIPAA probably applies. Work with education and FERPA might fit. State breach notification rules and additional cybersecurity requirements (from California, Massachusetts, New York, and others) are likely to impact you, too. Fund-raising could bring PCI DSS into the mix. VSC helps non-profits address varied cybersecurity requirements without demanding a lot of overhead – so you can focus on your important mission.
IT Services
Hackers target IT service providers because you are often connected to your clients very closely – you can access their customer's networks from anywhere and you have the keys (passwords and certificates) to your clients' most powerful systems and accounts. You may be a key part of your client's security program – applying patches, monitoring anti-malware, and managing firewalls – but it's easy to neglect your own program. Technical wizardry doesn't translate to compliance know-how, and IT providers tend to inherit the requirements your clients have (like HIPAA, PCI DSS, and FERPA) plus state breach notification laws and cybersecurity regulations that apply directly to you. VSC helps prove your security practices – policies, procedures, standards, training and awareness, risk analysis, and reporting – so you can focus on your clients' technology.
Government
Local governments are a growing target of cybersecurity attacks. Counties, cities, and towns hold a wealth of personal information about their residents but often lack the budget and expertise to keep that data secure. State breach notification rules and additional cybersecurity requirements (from California, Massachusetts, New York, and others) apply to government entities as well, and regulations like HIPAA or standards like PCI DSS could be added to the mix. VSC helps governments put the building blocks of a good program in place – policies, procedures, standards, training and awareness, risk analysis, and compliance reporting – making it easier to focus on your citizens' needs.
