Computer Solutions East, Inc. (CSE) partners with Cover Compliance, a company that brings cost-effective compliance program support for smaller enterprises.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been a pressing concern for business owners. Some are only beginning to pay attention to it now that we are on the last call before its full implementation on May 25th. Failure to comply with GDPR may result in large fines.
CSE and Cover Compliance are focusing on delivering services to support Microsoft Business 365’s Secure Score and Compliance Manager.
Microsoft Business 365’s Secure Score:
- Analyzes your Office 365 organization’s security based on your regular activities and security settings and then assigns a score. Think of it like a credit score for security.
- Using Secure Score helps increase your organization’s security by encouraging you to use the built-in security features in Office 365 (many of which you already purchased but might not be aware of).
Microsoft Business 365’s Compliance Manager:
- It combines the detailed information provided by Microsoft to auditors and regulators as part of various third-party audits of Microsoft ‘s cloud services against various standards and information that Microsoft compiles internally for its compliance with regulations (such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR) with your own self-assessment of your organization’s compliance with these standards and regulations.
- Enables you to assign, track, and record compliance and assessment-related activities, which can help your organization cross team barriers to achieve your organization’s compliance goals.
- Provides a secure repository for you to upload and manage evidence and other artifacts related to your compliance activities.
- Produces richly detailed reports in Microsoft Excel that document the compliance activities performed by Microsoft and your organization, that can be provided to auditors, regulators, and other compliance stakeholders.
From Luke Celente, CSE’s Managing Partner: “At first glance, I knew that this partnership would work well. Our vision is to enable small to medium-sized businesses to become more efficient and effective. CSE (as a technology service provider) and as Cover Compliance (a compliance business strategist) unite for this project, implementing compliance tests through Microsoft existent technologies would be an all-in deal for our clients.”
According to Glenn Mills, CEO of Cover Compliance: “I am excited for Cover Compliance to be partnering with CSE to help clients evolve and strengthen their compliance programs. Microsoft has created some incredible privacy and security compliance tools that are available to CSE customers as a part of their subscriptions. CSE’s deep knowledge of Microsoft products and Cover Compliance’s experience with simplifying data protection compliance will allow us to leverage those Microsoft tools for best use by clients. Our combined effort should help clients minimize information risks and gain confidence in their compliance programs.
