Compliance

Depending on the compliance needs of the business and standards required, Texaport can assist in ensuring technical enforcement and management of the IT elements of compliance.

The most common standards companies seek to comply with are ISO standards, legal regulations or security standards.

Over 10% of businesses and charities require suppliers to adhere to cyber standards, primarily the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) or ISO 27001.

These standards and the compliance of the business with them are sought for many reasons including: legal, industry standards, professionalism, growth or to structure the business more effectively.

Holding ISO 9001 and 27001 accreditations, Texaport understand the compliance processes for businesses as well as the technical ramifications of these changes. As these are not specifically IT focused standards, Texaport recommend working with external parties and cross-departmentally to ensure consistency throughout the organisation.

Cyber Essentials is a standard which companies may seek to comply with, as the National Cyber Security Centre has recommended that organisations work within this guidance agreed with GCHQ and the UK Government. Cyber Essentials provides base-level Cyber Security standards for companies to comply with to secure data, users and customer confidence, additional details of which can be found here.
