Navigating Compliance with Castle Rock SkyIn the ever-evolving landscape of information security, regulatory compliance is not just about adherence; it’s about understanding the nuances of varied frameworks and how they apply to your business. At Castle Rock Sky, we don’t just help you meet standards; we help you set them within your organization, ensuring a seamless blend of security, productivity, and compliance.SEC ComplianceFor our clients in the financial sector, SEC compliance is not optional; it is a strategic imperative. The Securities and Exchange Commission mandates strict protocols to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. Castle Rock Sky provides comprehensive services to ensure your technology systems adhere to the SEC’s cybersecurity guidelines, which include:

  • Risk Assessment: Identifying and assessing the cybersecurity risks to your systems, data, and capital.
  • Cybersecurity Policies: Developing and implementing robust cybersecurity policies tailored to your operations.
  • Incident Response Plan: Crafting a swift and strategic action plan for potential cybersecurity incidents to minimize impact.
  • Disclosure Protocols: Ensuring timely and comprehensive disclosure of cybersecurity risks and incidents to stakeholders.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

For our clients contracting with the Department of Defense (DoD), the CMMC framework is critical. It ensures that contractors have the necessary controls to protect sensitive defense information. Castle Rock Sky guides your journey through the levels of CMMC, with services that include:

  • Gap Analysis: Determining the steps needed to move from your current level of cybersecurity maturity to your target level.
  • Policy and Procedure Development: Creating the necessary documentation that governs your cybersecurity activities and demonstrates compliance.

New York State Financial Services Legislation

For financial services companies operating in New York, adherence to the state’s specific regulations, such as the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) cybersecurity requirements, is essential. Castle Rock Sky ensures compliance with these stringent regulations through:
  • Development of a Cybersecurity Program: Tailoring a program that fits the size and risk profile of your company, including measures for data governance, asset management, access controls, and more.
  • Cybersecurity Policy Design: Creating written policies that align with the NYDFS’s requirements for information security, data governance and classification, access controls, and customer data privacy.
  • Third-Party Service Provider Management: Ensuring your third-party providers adhere to the same cybersecurity standards, which is a requirement under NYDFS.
  • Incident Response Planning: Building a robust incident response plan that complies with the 72-hour notification period imposed by the NYDFS in the event of a cybersecurity event.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

For our clients in healthcare and those handling protected health information (PHI), HIPAA compliance is a central concern. Castle Rock Sky ensures that your patient data is protected and your processes are HIPAA-compliant through:
  • Risk Analysis and Management: Thoroughly assessing potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI and implementing safeguards.
  • Policy Development and Implementation: Establishing robust privacy and security policies that meet the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules.
