We are here to help you navigate compliance. Each engagement and service is developed to fit your organization’s size and infrastructure complexity. Regardless of your vertical or size, we are here to provide solutions and mitigate risks as they relate to your business productivity and continuity.
We perform in-depth control testing to determine if implemented controls are effective. The United States Department of Health and Human Services has stated that the NIST 800-30 guidance is an acceptable risk assessment strategy, and thus Intrinium performs our assessments according to this methodology.
After an engagement, a detailed report listing the compliance gaps for all administrative, physical, and technological safeguards will be provided, along with detailed recommendations for remediation of such issues.
The nine steps of this methodology that will be followed by Intrinium are:
If you are an organization that belongs to the category of a covered entity (U.S. health plans, healthcare clearinghouses or healthcare providers) or business associates and you handle “protected health information” (PHI), interfaces with medical or patient records, you must proceed with ensuring you are HIPAA compliant.
Credit Card Requirements
If you are an organization that stores, processes or transmits credit card data, you must proceed with ensuring you are PCI compliant.
If you are a financial institution that belongs to the entity of (banks, credit unions, investment firms or mortgage brokerage firm), you must proceed with ensuring you follow financial compliance bound by the FFIEC.
Intrinium has met the rigorous requirements of the PCI Security Standards Council to become Qualified Security Assessors, which is the only certification that authorizes auditors to complete your Attestation of Compliance and Report on Compliance. Our auditors have the experience necessary to assist in identifying the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and can assist in properly filling it out
With digital payment methods becoming a preferred method for many vendors and clients alike, it is more important than ever to secure your transactions. We are here to assist with streamlining your security to ensure your organization is PCI compliant as required by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The PCI DSS 3.0 standards apply to all organizations that store, process, or transmit credit card data. There are 12 major requirements, along with approximately 200 sub-requirements that include the following:
Requirements #1 and #2: Build and Maintain a Secure Network
Requirements #3 and #4: Protect Cardholder Data
Requirements #5 and #6: Maintain a Vulnerability and Management Program
Requirements #7, #8, and #9: Implement Strong Access Control Measures

Intrinium has over a decade of experience working in the healthcare space from regional healthcare centers to big-city hospitals, we have executed hundreds of comprehensive HIPAA Audit, Risk Assessment and Gap Analysis based on the HIPAA Audit program set forth by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Civil Rights, bound to the NIST 800-30.
The OCR HIPAA Audit program analyzes processes, controls, and policies of selected covered entities pursuant to the HITECH Act audit mandate. OCR established a comprehensive audit protocol that contains the requirements to be assessed through these performance audits. The entire audit protocol is organized around modules, representing separate elements of privacy, security, and breach notification.
