The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cyber-Security Framework (NIST CSF) provides organizations with a structured framework for identifying and mitigating cyber-security threats.

NIST CSF provides a common platform for all IT operations in the mitigation of risks. We provide you with a prevention-first approach and effective monitoring of data security across networks, Cloud, and endpoints to identify and reduce overall security risks. There are other security frameworks in the IT industry but so far the NIST CSF is the most efficient and nationally recognized cyber-security program.

How we help

At Rhyno, we help your company align with the requirements of NIST CSF compliance. We ensure that your company is capable of identifying serious cyber threats and minimize total risk in order to be fully compliant with NIST CSF requirements.

We’ll also ensure that your IT team is equipped with the right tools and knowledge to identify potential cyber threats and minimize or eliminate risks to become fully compliant to the NIST CSF requirements.

Does NIST CSF only apply to the IT department?

This framework provides security guidance for all areas of your organization including the IT department. To realize the full benefits of NIST CSF, make sure it is not just adopted by the IT team but by the entire staff.

ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that you have identified the risks, assessed the implications, and put in place systemized controls to limit any damage to your organization.

ISO/IEC 27001 was published collaboratively by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) with the intent to help organizations mitigate the risk of privacy and data breaches. Information security breaches may result in the loss of millions, even billions of private organizational records and sensitive customer data. Companies are under intense global pressure to demonstrate they are effectively and competently safeguarding against data breaches.

Companies worldwide have responded to the pressures by implementing ISO/IEC 27001, the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system. It is a documented set of policies, procedures, processes, and systems that manages the risks of data loss from cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks, or theft.

Cost-Effective Solution To Ensure That Your Company Is PCI-DSS Compliant

We help businesses achieve full PCI compliance certification. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance ensures that businesses that conduct credit card transactions have measures in place to protect their customers from card theft and incidences of fraud. If you run a business that accepts, transmits, or stores customer card data, then you must have PCI DSS compliance validation from major card brands such as Visa, Discover, American Express, and MasterCard.

PCI DSS compliance is managed and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) which was launched in 2006. The compliance applies to all companies and organizations that handle cardholder data, notwithstanding the number of times the customer conducts a financial transaction using the data. It is important for both small and large businesses to have PCI compliance to avoid penalties.

How we help

We help businesses develop PCI DSS compliant payment solutions to not only avoid penalties but to increase customer trust and confidence as well. Our PCI compliance experts will work with your IT team to implement the required policies by identifying cardholder information risks and providing you with expert guidance to avert the risks.

The CyberSecure Canada certification gives certified businesses official recognition by the federal government for demonstrating their compliance to the baseline security controls.

The Baseline Cyber Security Controls for Small and Medium Organizations are recommendations for improving resiliency via cybersecurity investments. Developed by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, this baseline attempts to apply the 80/20 rule (achieve 80% of the benefit from 20% of the effort) to the cybersecurity practices of small and medium organizations in Canada.

How will this help my organization?

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting SMEs causing devastating financial losses and liabilities. The CyberSecure Canada program is targeted at Canadian SMEs (maximum of 499 employees), but all organizations in Canada (including not-for-profit and for-profit organizations) are eligible to apply for certification. It provides a condensed set of advice and guidance to help Canadian SMEs maximize the effectiveness of their cybersecurity investments.

It also helps build trust in today’s digital world. Once certified, the CyberSecure Canada certification mark can be displayed to give official federal government recognition that compliance with the baseline security controls has been achieved. This shows customers, partners, investors, and suppliers that you meet the standard’s requirements, and therefore provides an assurance that fundamental cyber risk management steps have been taken to safeguard information and systems.

How we help

Our consultants will guide through the process by recommending and implementing the thirteen baseline security controls including:

  • Develop an incident response plan
  • Automatically patch OS and applications
  • Applying security software
