A McCarthy Byrnes Compliance Assessment ensures that an organization’s cybersecurity policies and procedures adhere to relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. To protect sensitive information, school districts must comply with a variety of federal and state laws and regulations, such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This assessment also helps to identify gaps in cybersecurity controls and a path to increased security maturity.
As a result, organizations are prepared to protect their systems, networks, and data. Organizations can take proactive steps to improve their security posture, halt attackers in their tracks, maintain business continuity, and reduce the risk of loss due to cyberattacks by identifying vulnerabilities, weaknesses and gaps in their cybersecurity measures.
