TeamLogic IT’s Compliance Solutions are a Must-Have for Sensitive Data
From government regulations to customer demands, the burden is on businesses to protect confidential information despite rising threats
Data security was a big draw at a recent CompTIA member meeting, but right behind that topic in popularity was information compliance. Happily for TeamLogic IT franchise owners, company President Chuck Lennon was in the thick of things.
“So many companies have to adhere to very rigorous compliance standards,” says Chuck, who serves on CompTIA’s public advocacy committee. “For some, it may be specific local or state regulations. For others, such as anyone involved in health care, there’s the federal HIPAA standards, which must be met and maintained. Whatever the case, if you are found to be noncompliant, you’re lost pretty quickly.”
Multiple pitfalls for the unprepared
The major problem most small businesses have, Chuck explains, is that rules and regulations around data security and compliance are forever changing. Business owners don’t have time to keep up, and even if there is an internal IT person, he or she is unlikely to manage to follow the changing rules and regs, either. There’s a strong need for someone to offer both advice and solutions.
“If you’re a busy guy running your accounting practice that serves a law firm, or doctor’s office or hospital, the last thing you are thinking about is new HIPAA compliance directives,” Chuck says. “You know you need solid data security, and you know the compliance is a ‘make or break’ issue, but you don’t know where to start. That’s where TeamLogic IT franchise owners and their tech teams save the day.”
Wraparound benefits of managed services
When a business signs a managed services contract with TeamLogic IT, the owner knows that hardware and software are going to be monitored and protected. What he or she may not know is that, along with upgrade recommendations and other device-oriented services, TeamLogic IT will also be monitoring issues around security and compliance.
“People really have no idea just how much they are getting with our managed services model,” Chuck says. “In addition to the hands-on, local service from their TeamLogic IT franchise owner and techs, they also are getting our national team of experts, who are attending meetings like CompTIA and watching the developing trends around regulatory issues. We are front and center at these think-tank sessions and strategic meetings, so we not only help our customers meet security and compliance regulations now, we’re poised to keep them well positioned in the future.”
