Efficient Gap Assessments

For organizations new to compliance or trying to navigate new business processes as they relate to compliance, a readiness assessment/gap engagement will provide the needed guidance to ensure compliance prior to an assessment.

The readiness process identifies any gaps in your controls and allows you to address those gaps before going through your assessment. This can provide efficiencies to the ultimate assessment process and help save time, cost, and avoid unanticipated gaps or expansion of scope.
