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.

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.
