VPNs, MFA & the Realities of Remote Work

A primary dilemma is balancing security vs. productivity. Interview: Arti Lalwani, Practice Lead for ISO Services, A-LIGN.

However, it was joined by its privacy twin in August 2019, with ISO 27701 offering a more strategic and privacy-focused approach to compliance. To learn more, Infosecurity recently spoke to Arti Lalwani, who leads A-LIGN’s ISO practice and had recently accredited a client to 27701. She said “we were one of the first accredited by ANAB” and she regarded it as a large feat to “be one of the first to go through that.” According to IT Governance, ISO 27701 specifies the requirements for – and provides guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving – a PIMS (privacy information management system), while the ISO says 27701 is an extension to 27001 which helps companies manage their privacy risks for personally identifiable information.

Risk Management as a Service. GDPR Compliance, Cyber Security & Data Protection Service. SSAE 16 to SSAE 18: Making the Switch. When service organizations receive a SOC 1 examination, it is performed under the SSAE 16 or “Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements 16, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization” standard.

SSAE 16 to SSAE 18: Making the Switch

In the Spring 2016, The AICPA’s Auditing Standards Board (ASB) completed the clarity project, the result of which was the issuance of the SSAE 18 standard, “Concepts common to all Attestation Engagements”. This new standard replaces SSAE 16 for SOC 1 engagements and goes into effect for reports dated after May 1, 2017. It is important to note that the SSAE 16 standard was specific to service organizations and the SSAE 18 is for all attestation engagements. This means that we can no longer refer to SOC 1 as an SSAE 16 examination and it will not be replaced by the term SSAE 18 examination. Instead, it will simply be referred to as the SOC 1.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) newest verification mechanism designed to ensure that cybersecurity controls and processes adequately protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) that resides on Defense Industrial Base (DIB) systems and networks.

The DoD implemented requirements for safeguarding Covered Defense Information (CDI) and cyber incident reporting through the release of Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012 in October 2016. The DFARS directed DoD Contractors to self-attest that adequate security controls were implemented within contractor systems to ensure that CDI confidentiality was maintained. The security controls required to be implemented by the DFARS are defined within National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations.
