Award-Winning Technology Service Provider Further Distinguishes Itself by
Earning a Highly Respected Cybersecurity Credential, Validating Industry Security Best Practices
Lansing, MI, October 1, 2018 – Providence Consulting, managed service provider and cyber security expert, announced today it has received the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ from CompTIA, the non-profit association for world’s information technology (IT) industry.
The CompTIA Security Trustmark+ validates that Providence uses the security processes identified by the IT industry as generally accepted best practices and has been evaluated by an independent third-party assessor as meeting the criteria established by the CompTIA Security Trustmark+. Based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ is a comprehensive review of the security posture of any IT business, applicable across multiple industries and compliance regulations.
“The CompTIA Security Trustmark+ signifies that Providence Consulting adheres to our industry’s highest standards for security practices and business processes in critical components of identification, protection, detection, response, and recovery as related to data security,” said Nancy Hammervik, Senior Vice President, Industry Relations, CompTIA. “Earning the Security Trustmark+ demonstrates a true commitment to address the challenges of security compliance facing our industry today.”
“Data protection and cybersecurity have always been a vital part of the consulting and support services that we provide our clients,” said Jeff Dettloff, Providence Consulting’s President and Chief Problem Solver. “Today there is an ever-increasing need for organizations of all sizes to protect their data, especially if they collect and store any personally identifiable information on their customers, patients, or employees. The Security Trustmark+ validates that we know how to protect that sensitive data, as well as help organizations identify regulatory compliance gaps and address their concerns in the areas of IT security policies, processes and planning.”
To earn the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ Providence Consulting successfully passed an independent assessment of their security policies, capabilities, practices, and processes against industry best practices in areas such as:
