Documents, Policies & Plans

Our highly effective policies and plans are currently in-force at banks, credit unions, healthcare facilities, and DoD contractors. Our careful iterative process ensures your organization is understood before the writing begins. Your policies and plans need to express actual practices, not some templatized check-box fantasy that bears little resemblance to your unique organization.

We will work with you to create a new Information Security Program, or dramatically improve your existing program or any component to include:

  • Information Security Policy
  • Incident Response Plan
  • Security Plan(s)
  • Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Plans
  • Vendor Management Plan
  • Pandemic Response Plan

Monarch ISC Information Security Program documents have undergone two-decades of regulatory and audit scrutiny, passed every test, and set the standard. They are the bedrock on which you will build your information security program.

HIPAA Compliance Assessment

You made sure your Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system was HIPAA-compliant. Did you know that is just the first step in making your practice HIPAA-compliant?

You take great care of your patients, and you know that means taking great care of your patients’ sensitive personal data, too. But complying with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) can be as complicated as some of the things you learned in medical school.

Monarch Information Security Consulting understands what the law demands of you and your practice, can evaluate what you need to do to meet those expectations, and will create a customized and easy-to-understand plan for you to achieve complete HIPAA compliance and get back to caring for your patients with confidence.

Our consultants have over 40 years of experience in identifying, evaluating, and remediating HIPAA compliance. We take the time to get to know you and your organization, and we create a comprehensive map of your entire data flow. We pinpoint your vulnerabilities and infractions, we provide a smart, straightforward plan to achieve sustainable, HIPAA compliant data security, and we stand by you and our work in the event of an audit.

CMMC Assessment

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) has been released!

The certification will be required for all Department of Defense contractors AND sub-contractors. Audits will begin in 2020. The audit timelines and the list of approved auditors have not been released.

Special Note: DoD Guidance for self-assessment scoring has been updated! You will need to provide your self-assessment (Basic) of the NIST 800-171 guidance to the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). The system is online NOW! Do you know your score?

NOW is the time to start the certification process, so contact us for a free consultation.
For many organizations this is a strange new world. Data security requirements have been in place for banks, merchants accepting credit cards, and healthcare organizations, but never have manufacturers and other government contractors with unclassified information faced this type of scrutiny.
This can be an overwhelming amount of work.
The certification domains cover a wide variety of topics from Asset Management to System and Information Integrity. You will need to implement the correct controls, write the appropriate policies, and keep track of your compliance activities in preparation of an audit. Failure to be certified will mean thousands, or millions, of dollars in lost government contracts.

Monarch ISC can help.
