Our signature assessment, TECH LOCK Certified 2.0, offers a comprehensive and continuous strategy to address multiple compliance standards. Unlike most assessments, which are point-in-time reflections, TECH LOCK 2.0 ensures your organization continually remains compliant.

Certification Services

TECH LOCK Certified

Your organization is likely required to complete multiple audits each year, many of which require examining the same data security and processes. A TECH LOCK Certified assessment tests all of these requirements simultaneously which enables:

Time Savings

Audits may last several weeks and require significant internal resources. By conducting all required audits at the same time, your team will spend less time responding to auditor requests and more time contributing to your bottom line.

Cost Efficiency

By eliminating redundant actions, a TECH LOCK Certified audit costs less than conducting each required audit independently.

Additional Audit and Assessments

Risk Assessments

TECH LOCK experts can assess your organization to identify your risks, assist in remediation prioritization or prepare for an audit. Our risk assessments are designed to identify two types of risks as you prepare for a formal data security audit or assessment. Data security issues that may present a risk of a data breach. Any compliance issues that would be either time-consuming or expensive to resolve.

Determining your current security protocols and risks

  • Audit Preparation
  • Risk Assessment focus can be based on major changes associated with new initiatives or proactive engagement to determine readiness in meeting new compliance changes
  • Each engagement provides activity templates, best practices recommendations, and knowledge transfer to understand how to manage risk.

Third-Party Risk Assessments

In a world of increased security risks and regulatory oversight, the due diligence and vendor management practices of just a few years ago are now inadequate. It is no longer acceptable to send a questionnaire and check the box to say you have vetted your service providers. TECH LOCK can assist you to hold your vendors to your own high standards of data security and compliance.

Providing due diligence and vendor oversight

  • Contract Review
  • Security Questionnaires
  • Validate Security Questionnaire responses with on-line meeting or on-site visit
  • Review third-party audit report of third-party security and compliance assessments

PCI DSS Assessment

If your organization transmits, processes or stores credit card information you are required to comply with approximately 250+ controls within 12 requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Many organizations are required to complete a PCI DSS assessment annually. TECH LOCK, an accredited PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Company, offers a full-service, independent third-party audit with technically skilled assessors that possess the deep industry-relevant experience to understand the finer points of your data security posture.

PCI ASV Assessment

Any organization which processes, transmits or stores credit card information is required to conduct an external vulnerability scan quarterly and after any significant changes. Approved Scanning Vendors (ASVs) are a select group of accredited organizations who provide a set of security tools that have been validated to adhere to the PCI DSS Requirement 11.2.2. TECH LOCK will work with your team to simplify the process and assist your organization in meeting PCI DSS scanning guidelines.

Penetration Testing

You may think your infrastructure is protected, but those with malicious intent are continuously looking to exploit weaknesses. While vulnerability scans and automatic updates reduce your risks, the only way to know how your infrastructure would react in the event of an attempted attack is to conduct penetration testing.

HITRUST Certification

Ensuring adequate data security is a critical requirement for all covered entities and business associates. Working with TECH LOCK to achieve HITRUST certification demonstrates that your organization has a holistic security framework in place that incorporates a variety of standards and regulatory requirements. It also offers a recognized, objective benchmark from which you can manage and measure your compliance and security efforts.
