Compliance and Security

Cyber attacks are on the rise, and cybersecurity costs are skyrocketing. Finding qualified security talent to protect your business is a time-consuming and costly challenge. Working with a Compliance Certification Services provider like DeVeera is the most effective path to compliance, saving you time and money.

With security and compliance certification services from DeVeera, your business is protected from both internal and external threats that target sensitive data. You’ll also benefit from ensuring your California business meets the requirements outlined by current laws and regulations that govern businesses in the state.

We provide the following compliance services:

  • HIPAA Compliance and Training

    Since 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has outlined federal mandates regarding the storage and treatment of health information with the goal of minimizing costs, simplifying health administrative processes, and improving security and protection of sensitive data. Updated in 2009 as an attempt to reform healthcare sector, HIPAA was reviewed again with the Omnibus Rule in 2013.

    If your business accesses, stores, transmits, or handles electronic protected health information (EPHI), you are subject to HIPAA compliance regulations requiring protection of EPHI from unauthorized, accidental, or intentional theft, loss, or destruction by internal or external sources.

    HIPAA compliance underscores critical security principles for any business — healthcare or otherwise. Failure to address and comply with HIPAA can result in the assessment of incredibly hefty fines.

    Apart from providing quality advanced IT guidance and solutions to businesses, DeVeera is also well-versed in the most up-to-date HIPAA compliance standards, making compliance and training fast and straightforward.

  • FINRA Compliance

    The financial industry, like many others, is heavily regulated and for obvious reasons. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, a non-profit, self-regulatory body under the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), brokerage firms and stockbrokers are monitored and regulated to ensure fairness and transparency in marketplace transactions.

    FINRA regulates on average between 30-50 billion financial transactions daily, acting as a forum for mediation when disagreements between investors occur. Further, FINRA enforces ethical standards and implements investing safeguards, requiring all brokers are registered and licensed. Those who break the rules receive hefty fines, suspensions, and can even be barred.

    If your business is subject to FINRA registration and licensing, DeVeera guides you through a successful process.

  • GDPR Compliance

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a ruling that requires companies that store, transmit, or process data of EU citizens to protect and secure this data. Failure to comply with GDPR requirements can lead to severe fines.
    Although GDPR impacts data related to EU citizens, it applies to any enterprise that makes its services available to EU citizens, including companies based in the United States.

    GDPR requirements and the compliance process itself is complex and confusing. Partnering with an IT firm that specializes in compliance certification services simplifies the process and protects you. DeVeera smooths the path to successful ongoing compliance, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.
