Compliance is a Shared Responsibility

    At Assured Bridge, we’ve created services that help businesses meet their security and compliance requirements as described by NIST SP 800-171 and DFARS Clause 7012. It’s important to note that I say “help” here; not all security controls and processes needed can be purchased. Part of the compliance effort involves changes to how your company operates.

    Changing the way we work, or the processes people have become used to, is the greatest challenge facing an organization. However, recognition of the changes that have been implemented is often the most telling evidence that compliance goals are being met. Without change, meeting these goals to protect the information and data, upon which business depends, is not possible.
    The Assured Bridge services embody the shared responsibility model. Using validated and certified infrastructure, we provide the technical services and controls that are often the most difficult and costly; our customers  and clients implement the policies and processes to use them. Together, compliance can be effectively achieved, and business goals met.
