Illumant's assessment services are appropriate for any business or organization, however, Illumant has deep expertise in a variety of verticals and sub-verticals where a nuanced approach is merited given the unique characteristics of these entities:
Banks, credit unions, investment management and wealth management firms operate in a heavily regulated space. Top priorities are protecting personal client information and client portals, and preventing fraud. Illumant knows the regulations, regulators and guidance (GLB, FDIC, NCUA, OCC, FTC, SEC, FFIEC) and our services address their requirements, as well as security best practices for the financial services industries.
Hospitals and clinics have the unique challenge of making private health information available to patients and doctors as needed, including health, billing, and insurance information, at the same time protecting this data from theft and accidental disclosure, while operating, for the most part, in open and heavily trafficked environments. Additionally, these organizations are strictly regulated and they must demonstrate compliance with HIPAA/HITECH/Meaningful Use security requirements. Illumant’s assessment and compliance services assist healthcare organizations in navigating these challenges with respect to information security.
Cities, counties, municipal utilities, state and federal government agencies are on the frontlines of cyber-attacks. The services provided to its customers are broad, and infrastructure is distributed. Security compliance issues may include PCI, HIPAA, NERC as well as state security and privacy regulations. Illumant has vast experience working with cities, counties, municipalities to offer array of assessment services to help these organizations address their security issues and requirements.
Public utilities (electric companies) that engage in the generation, transmission, distribution and retail of electric power are deemed to be critical components of the country’s infrastructure, and as such they are heavily regulated from many perspectives, including information security. Standards for compliance have been established by NERC called Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards. Illumant helps electric utilities comply with NERC CIPv5 and abide by best practices in information security.
