Governance (Virtual) Forum - 221026
"Managing a SOC 2 Certification Project" by Andrew Gurbaxani, Chief Information Officer at Assessivate
The Governance Forum provides value to the PMI Atlanta community by offering participants: Discussion of field-tested best practices, Decisions frameworks to assess culture and apply optimal strategy, Key takeaways to “take to work tomorrow” to maximize realization of value through introduction and standardization of best practices in the oversight and execution of projects, programs, and portfolios.
Increasingly, organizations are being required to certify their compliance with various security frameworks, such as HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, etc. A natural response to this mandate is to as a project manager (either a company employee or contractor) to lead this enterprise-wide effort. What many PMs do not realize is that such projects are not straightforward or easy. Indeed, they are among the most complex and risky projects an organization can engage in.
This talk will illustrate the similarities and differences between a “standard” project and a compliance one, pitfalls to avoid, and critical success factors to ensure an “unqualified attestation” from the compliance auditors. The example of a recent successful SOC 2 accreditation for a PEO company will be used.
Andrew Gurbaxani has spent the last decade as an executive in charge of the IT function for companies in two highly-regulated industries (healthcare, financial services). Within healthcare (at Benevis), he was responsible for the rollout of a “compliance template” to help measure and monitor the company’s overall HIPAA compliance, as well as the acquisition and deployment of cybersecurity systems and services. Within financial services (at Vensure and Fiserv), he led the former through its first successful SOC 2 certification, and expanded the cybersecurity function to allow both international and third-party users secure access to Vensure systems. At Fiserv, he was responsible for governance activities around large bank consolidations and PCI compliance audits.
