Passing a cyber compliance assessment isn’t easy, but it’s necessary for your business to thrive. To get contracts, grants, cyber insurance, and trust from customers, your business needs a base level of security to protect against attackers aiming to access your business’ secure files and data.
At Hyper Vigilance, our expertise is preparing our clients for their cyber compliance audit by providing thorough, effective, and cost-efficient assessment support services no matter what compliance requirements they need to achieve.
Our Compliance Assessment and Audits Process
We start our compliance audit support services by conducting an assessment of your current cybersecurity posture. This includes walking through each control and comparing it to the security controls of your chosen compliance framework whether that be NIST 171, ISO 27001, or HIPAA. Once we determine how well you are meeting those controls, we devise a remediation and mitigation plan to align your current operations using a risk-based approach to combat any cybersecurity threats. This project plan, once implemented, will have you prepared to schedule your official CMMC Audit.

What is a compliance standards assessment?
Different from a CMMC Audit, a compliance risk assessment takes a high-level view of your security posture, explores what controls you meet, what practices you follow, and maps out a general game plan of how to address the gaps in your current setup. This no long-term commitment first step is a great way to dip your toes into the complex world of cybersecurity.
The purpose of a compliance audit is to understand where you are with your business’ cybersecurity so you can lay out a roadmap of what still needs to be done. Very few businesses meet compliance standards with how they currently operate. Undergoing CMMC Internal Audit before submitting to a third-party official audit means that you know where you stack up against compliance requirements and know that you’ll come out on the other side.
What is the best approach to a compliance audit?
Short answer: compare what you’re doing to what the compliance requirements tell you to do. Longer answer: take stock of your software, processes, monitoring, and access points and look for any current vulnerabilities or areas of weakness. Then, analyze the compliance requirements and see if what you found in your assessment matches up to what the requirements are asking for. From there, take each area and work to align it with the requirements of your compliance.
How do I conduct a compliance assessment for my business?
While almost all businesses need to meet compliance requirements of some sort, very few businesses have all the resources to complete an internal assessment in-house. The easiest and most cost-effective way is to enlist the support of a third-party expert to take the biggest lift of the assessment, leaving you to run your business.
