Regulatory Compliance

Regulations affect almost every industry. Below are some areas we can assess based on your organization’s requirements:

  • GDPR
  • GLBA/FFIEC/InTREx – Financial Institutions
  • GLBA – Higher Education
  • NIST
  • ISO 27001

Incident Response

Readiness: BKD Cyber professionals can help you assess the strength of your incident response program. We can assist in developing your custom incident response plan or test your existing plan against cyberthreat scenarios—allowing your organization to stay current in its effort to mitigate the effect of an attack.

Post-Breach: BKD Cyber can provide support if your organization faces a cyberattack. This includes providing computer forensic services to assess the effect and following the entire chain of custody process to appropriately handle media throughout the investigation process. 

BKD Red Team

Ever wonder what a hacker would do once in your network? BKD Red Team is a digital attack simulation that answers that question. BKD Cyber professionals perform this hack under controlled conditions using the same actions that an actual malicious outsider would perform to access and harvest data to take out of your organization. This exercise is an effective way to assess how a real-world breach would affect your organization and also train your security team to more rapidly respond to a cyber incident.

BKD WhiteHat Services

Drawing on extensive cybersecurity expertise, BKD WhiteHat Services helps give you peace of mind by combating black hat threats and guiding you through the necessary steps to address cyberthreats. With this monthly subscription, you’ll have access to a full suite of cybersecurity services, including a subscription to IntegraReport™—BKD’s fraud hotline service that can be used to report cyber incidents.

SOC for Cybersecurity

The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) released a framework designed to help increase trust and transparency over your organization’s controls as it relates to a cybersecurity risk management program. This type of examination is appropriate for virtually any organization, including businesses and not-for-profit organizations. It allows for flexibility through a customized security framework and helps build resilient organizations that know the effectiveness of their cybersecurity controls. Think this might be for you?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance

PCI Attestation: Any organization that accepts credit or debit card payments is subject to Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. As a qualified security assessor company, BKD can assist you with an independent annual assessment. Whether it’s a Report on Compliance (ROC) or Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), our team can help you complete your report and Attestation of Compliance (AOC).

PCI Readiness: For businesses that are uncertain of their PCI compliance, BKD Cyber provides advisory services through a readiness assessment. This involves evaluating your current environment against the applicable PCI requirements for your organization to help you see where you stand among the current PCI Data Security Standard.
