You are on the hook to demonstrate compliance with CPS 234; how will you do it? How will you deal with your external auditor when they come to perform your half-yearly and year-end Financial Statements audits and want your CPS 234 attestation?

SAM (Self Assessment and Management) announces the release of their CPS 234 Compliance framework, an economical platform to proactively assess, monitor, report and improve cybersecurity against CPS 234.

Imagine being able to link spend to control improvement, update compliance reporting in real time and immediately produce complete management reports with trending graphs. Imagine being able to drive your audit process with a fully mapped report showing compliance against the standard.

We have developed a playbook for compliance to CPS 234. Contact us today and we can put you on the path to demonstrating compliance. And here is the good news: you do not need to spend buckets of cash on consulting services to get there. You can do it with the dedicated team you already have.
