Compliance is the foundation for risk mitigation in modern business.

Improve Security

Maintain Trust

The ability to customize and deliver a highly complex Private Cloud Anywhere solution makes M-Theory’s CaaS model the most compliant option in the industry.

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, organizations that process and/or maintain healthcare-related information are federally mandated to demonstrate compliance for the security of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). In 2009, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) added provisions that extended HIPAA Security requirements not only to business associates, but to subcontractors as well. M-Theory Consulting Group’s (MTCG) unique HIPAA compliance template comes pre-mapped to appropriate assessment areas such as applications, departments, business associates, infrastructure elements, and more.

Features

Eliminate the Complexity of HIPAA Compliance

Assessment templates come with predefined, robust controls based on HIPAA best practices, cross-referenced with NIST guidelines. Select only those controls you wish to include in your assessment or modify/add your own controls quickly and easily.

Workflow That Mirrors Any Existing Process

Dynamic workflow bends to meet your most complex processes, not vice versa. Map virtually every aspect of your current workflow processes into M-Theory Consulting Group. Upon completion, the process can automatically be passed to others for review or additional input.

Achieve More Accurate Results

Achieve the highest degree of accuracy with relationship-driven technology. M-Theory draws the relationship between the ePHI findings on a given server and identify its possible effect on the control requirements of the room in which it resides. The moment ePHI findings for this server are entered and the relationships are identified, M-Theory adjusts the appropriate criticality levels, control requirements, and compliance evaluation automatically.

Deliver Real-time, Actionable Reporting

M-Theory Group’s 50+ unique roll-up/drill-down reporting delivers actionable information to key stakeholders. Organizations can also launch their own custom reports, either in Microsoft SSRS and/or Crystal reports, directly from M-Theory. All data entered into MTCG is immediately available for consumption by MTCG’s analytic engines, reporting structures and dashboards within the application giving end-users access to real-time data.

Enacted by the US Congress in 2002, and formally known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act, SOX, to which it is commonly referred is the gold standard and basis for most other legal compliance standards. The primary goal of the legislation requires that top company management individually certifies the accuracy of the financial information that the company publishes. Additionally, SOX forced Boards of Directors and third-party auditors to confirm the accuracy of those financial statements as well. M-Theory not only understands the implications of the methodologies for satisfying a SOX audit but also how SOX interacts with and affects other corporate compliance measures.
