Your security solutions should only follow best practices from Microsoft, Google, M365, Desktop AV, Email Security Stack, SAT Security Awareness Training, 2FA, and Identity Management if your organization needs to achieve compliance now or in the near future.
Every phase of digital interaction should be fully monitored if you want to avoid hostile intrusion and thus a successful cyberattack.
Similarly, every phase of digital interaction must comply with NIST and MITRE regulations.
Meanwhile, the software market is flooded with new products vying for your attention. But at the end of the day, only the best product will actually work and get you to pass audits.
If you are a financial institution, an investment company, a technology company, a healthcare organization, or work with a city or state government, you need to start using security best practices today at the latest.
Configuration Is Compliance
To ensure adequate information security and support your risk management process, you need to pay very close attention to how you configure, manage, and network your system components.
When you make system changes in response to new security threats, corrected or updated hardware and software, and patches to fix bugs, you must always align them with the system configuration.
This is the main reason why most security solutions do not work and why you have given up on implementing them. Because you didn’t have the necessary expertise and knowledge. And maybe you also lacked time and money.
However, the requirements for companies in our time are not getting less, but more stringent. And the only way for you to stay in business is to become competent, compliant, and play by the rules, because if you don’t:
- Violations of compliance and privacy laws will demand more money than you have and put you out of business.
- Cyber gangs will grab all your data and extort you for more money than you have and ruin your business.
The cyber market is becoming highly regulated, and if you want to stay in business, you’ve to obey the regulations. At the very least, you need to get cyber insurance, which you can get if you meet 20% of all compliance and certification requirements.
Compliance-Based Software Licensing For Every SMB
In addition to ensuring data and cyber protection, more and more companies must comply with dozens of cybersecurity standards and requirements if they want to do business at all.
Every SMB should start by getting cyber insurance based on SOC 2 and CMMC 2.0, both from NIST and MITRE. The minimum cyber insurance requirements are 20% of the requirements of SOC 2 and CMMC 2.0
As your business grows, you’ll need to obtain SOC 2 and CMMC 2.0. By doing so, you’ll automatically meet 80% of the requirements of NIST and MITRE.
If you do 20% of all basic things, you have the 80% of data and network protection.
In reality, most organizations only do 20% of those 20% basic things, which means they need to do five times more to avoid cyber risk.
What do all SMBs have in common? They need help to become compliant and get cyber insurance, if not SOC 2 and CMMC 2.0 as well.
And the path to compliance is through software subscription licensing and configuration best practices. Following this scheme, you will achieve 80% certification.
License Your Way To Compliance
Do you already own CMMC 2.0? SOC 2? ITSM Audit? And what about cyber insurance compliance? If not, do you know how to get them and make your business compliant and profitable?
And are your SaaS configurations compliant?
Do you know the legal implications of a standard licensing configuration in terms of CIS -22/18 controls and all forms of compliance?
It really comes down to who is managing your software licenses and whether your security team is capable of implementing and managing your security solutions, i.e., configuring and monitoring them.
And then those solutions should only follow best practices from Microsoft, Google, M365, Desktop AV, Email Security Stack, SAT Security Awareness Training, 2FA, and Identity Management if your organization needs to achieve compliance now or in the near future.
There are 138 #CMMC2.0 controls, 99 for a SOC2 audit, and 38 for most cyber security insurance policies.
The easiest and the best path to compliance is to license all assets in the CIS -1&2 category, followed by best practices related to asset policies, controls, and configurations.
Yes, your path to compliance is through your SaaS licensing.
