Regulatory and Compliance
Our regulatory and compliance offerings enable businesses to effectively manage their IT Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Management (IT-GRCM) requirements and stay upfront with evolving regulations and threats.
Adeptus works alongside organizations to conduct end to end risk assessments to meet the regulatory framework prevailing in different parts of the world including PCI (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standards, ISO 27001 and 27002, NESA, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) 80053, IEC (International Electro Technical Commission) 62443 and the ISACA COBIT framework.
Our unique risk mitigation process leverages our broad expertise and experience, including Managed Security Services for monitoring controls, Cyber Network Defense Services, Incident Response Services and Secure Communications, and Infrastructure & Systems Integration Services.
PCI and PA DSS
Adeptus works with customers to perform gap analysis and report the controls that need remediation to achieve PCI and PA compliance. The assessment will include a review of the cardholder production network (including vulnerability and penetration testing) and supporting technical documentation. The assessment process may include interviews with company personnel to determine what PCI and PA requirements are in place and where remediation is required.
The first phase of the project will involve reviewing and validating the current cardholder network environment, policies and procedures against the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). The methodology for validation will include:
- Review of current cardholder environment technology and security features
- Mapping touch points to the corporate network
- Examining access points and network components for security shortcomings from a PCI perspective
- Verification that current documented controls meet the specific PCI DSS requirements
- Scans and penetration tests to validate that the client has attained an appropriate level of security
We keep a track of all remediation efforts and provide monthly status report to the client for the remediation steps. During this time, client is expected to implement PCI controls and work with our experts continuously of all remediation measures.
Adeptus will, as required for the project, deploy a PCI audit team of qualified personnel to carry out an on-site security assessment. After going through internal quality procedures, the client will be issued a Report on Compliance (ROC) and appropriate certification will be submitted to various credit card brands. Certification requirements are dependent on the level of the service providers.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the only auditable international standard which defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS)
‘Information is an ASSET which, like other important business assets, has VALUE to an organization and consequently needs to be SUITABLY protected’ “Information Security Management System is that part of the overall management system, based on a business risk approach, to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and improve information security’ ISMS always follows standard Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology.
Data security is becoming an increasingly important concern for healthcare organizations. For more than 15 years, HIPAA has been regulating the privacy and security of electronic protected health information (ePHI) utilized by health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers. The scope of that regulation was extended with the passing of the HITECH Act in 2009. Now compliance with the final HIPAA Omnibus Rule is mandated for these covered entities as well as their third-party vendors (business associates). Failure to comply can lead to civil and criminal penalties for healthcare organizations and their business associates.
With stricter compliance standards, many healthcare organizations are feeling vulnerable and uncertain about how these new regulations apply to them. Adeptus offers a variety of healthcare-related IT auditing, security, and compliance solutions designed to help you understand How HIPAA, HITECH, and the final Omnibus Rule impact your organization, what you need to do to protect your organization., which areas of your business pose IT risk, the IT security measures you need to take to become HIPAA compliant and mitigate risk and how to demonstrate, document and maintain compliance for your own organization and for your business associates.
VA/PT (Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing):-
The two methodologies are similar and it is important to understand the differences between them. Penetration testing process puts more prominence on gaining access as much as possible while vulnerability assessment puts emphasis on categorizing areas that are susceptible to attacks.
Vulnerability Assessment Services
Vulnerability Assessment validates the security of devices and unveils weaknesses in your IT infrastructure first hand before an external entity discovers and exploits any Vulnerability. The Vulnerability Assessment process also extends to identifying what an internal intruder can exploit. Your organization should work towards having a strong and resilient network infrastructure which will defend against all external and internal attacks. We need not emphasize the importance in improving the security posture in building reputation and customer trust. But not every organization is equipped with adequate man power and technology to materialize this. Another influencer includes competing priorities of IT department when it comes to spending resources on Vulnerability Assessment.
Penetration Test Methodology
Adeptus has a complete portfolio of Application and Infrastructure Vulnerability Assessment programs which cover entire spectrum of critical Security Vulnerabilities. Every organization has its own specific business model, priorities, and budgets. The values and culture of a company defined by its top management would have evolved over years. We provide tailor made Vulnerability Assessment solutions for your organization which covers a full range of Application and Infrastructure Assessments engineered to identify security vulnerabilities and recommend a matching mitigation policies.
Current State Assessment
Current State Assessment (CSA) is the next generation security assessment service from Adeptus. Traditional security testing services like Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration testing focuses only on the application or infrastructure components alone.
The purpose of the CSA Service is to analyze a Customer’s environment end to end and provide higher visibility into their existing security posture across a wide field of view. This is a broad security assessment for those organizations that need a macro view of their environment to ensure all of the industry recommended security best practices are implemented, vulnerabilities are fixed, security controls are in alignment with the Information Security Policy and Compliance standards, Threat monitoring is effective, Policies and Standards are well developed and maintained, Access control and Content Filtering is effective, Risk Register is properly maintained, Logging and Auditing is proper, Incident Response measures are well developed and implemented, Patch Management is up to date , Security Architecture is flawless and End Point and Network Security Controls are properly implemented.
This assessment will be followed with a thorough penetration testing of the client IT, IoT (Internet of Things), IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and ICS (Industrial Control Systems) network infrastructure and applications.

A Minimum Security Baseline (MSB) is a minimum information security configuration standard, sometimes referred to as an organization’s internal “best practices”. MSBs can be applied to many areas within an organization, including routers, switches, firewalls, servers, or a site. These configuration standards detail many important items such as security patch minimums, unnecessary services to disable, and the number of required physical locks and surveillance cameras.
Many believe that throwing more security technology at an area is the best security “medicine.” However, carefully applying standard information security configurations to hardware and software in addition to physical security measures will lead to a comprehensive and sustainable information security program.
Adeptus has experts in all facets of security, with many combined years of experience implementing and configuring hardware and software in a secure manner.
