March 29th, 2017, Dublin, Ireland / Cape Town, South Africa. Sysnet Global Solutions, a leading provider of cyber security and compliance solutions, today launched its Combined Assessment Model at the PCI Security Standards Council’s Middle East and Africa Forum in Cape Town, South Africa. Sysnet’s Combined Assessment Model (CAM) is a single assessment model that covers many standards. It enables businesses seeking compliance with multiple standards to work with one partner with fees typically showing savings of around 35-50% less than they would pay for multiple assessments.
Most organisations today have to comply with multiple information security related standards and regulations. These can include PCI DSS, POPI, GDPR, ISO 27001, Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and even audits by their own clients.
“Managing and tracking compliance with multiple standards on an individual basis poses a number of challenges for a business including task repetition, unnecessary additional financial cost, increased complexity, and demand on employees’ time.” said James Devoy, Chief Security Officer at Sysnet Global Solutions, “Sysnet’s Combined Assessment Model or CAM, brings together a new way of thinking that addresses these challenges, offering the business immediate and real, quantifiable benefits from day one.”
“CAM was developed to provide a solution to the traditional, island approach to managing information security. Problems such as a lack of effective and efficient collaboration, communication and control validation. CAM unifies the business’ security architecture into one cohesive system, providing a single compliance and assessment framework, thus increasing control environment efficiencies whilst dramatically reducing cost in; time, complexity and money.” said James.
CAM is future proofed and easily adapts to changes to the standards and additional standards can be added without having to build up another expensive internal compliance program – it simply slots into the existing framework.
- Less effort – CAM provides a common framework that covers all standards in one assessment.
- Reduced complexity – multiple management and design controls collapsed into one.
- Reduced cost – one partner, one assessment.
- Saves time – every aspect of our model saves effort and interactions with multiple standards.
