Thriveon earns CompTIA Security Trustmark+TM
NEW ULM — Thriveon announced it has received the Security Trustmark+™ from CompTIA, the global non-profit association for the information technology (IT) industry.
The CompTIA Security Trustmark+ validates that Thriveon uses the security processes identified by the IT industry as generally accepted best practices and has been evaluated by an independent third-party assessor as meeting the criteria established by the CompTIA Security Trustmark+. Based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ is a comprehensive review of the security posture of any IT business, applicable across multiple industries and compliance regulations.
“The potential for becoming the victim of a cyberattack is a reality for any business,” said Sam Bloedow, CEO of Thriveon. “Managing the risk of cybercrime is essential to managing overall business risk as well as assuring compliance for regulations such as PCI-DSS, SSAE-16 and HIPAA.”
Along with the CompTIA Security Trustmark+TM credential, Thriveon also announced that it has begun to offer clients Cybersecurity Awareness Training for their employees. As seen in last week’s record breaking ransomware attack, known as “WannaCry”, it just takes one click in a malicious email to give hackers the access they need to take control of data and networks, shutting down business operations and potentially putting lives at risk.
“The best approach to cybersecurity is multilayered, and the weakest layer is usually the human element,” said Bloedow. “By bringing this training to our clients along with robust technical security, we are helping them to have the most proactive cybersecurity possible, helping them to not only manage cyber risk but overall business risk.”
