MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J. AND NEW YORK (PRWEB) JANUARY 02, 2019: Starting in 2019, Partners in Regulatory Compliance (PIRC) will offer consultative risk management services and advise businesses on sophisticated technology solutions to ensure regulatory compliance, integrated with the best in cybersecurity defense platforms.

Built by the leadership team at Exigent Technologies, which has provided full-service IT consulting in the New York tri-state area for more than 20 years, PIRC provides an innovative answer to the growing, complex need for cybersecurity in businesses facing strict regulatory compliance controls. Whether a business needs the full leadership of a virtual Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or help with a specific regulatory compliance matter, PIRC’s team of certified cybersecurity experts ensure a compliant, secure digital environment.

“As both digital attacks and regulatory demands grow exponentially, we’ve launched this highly specific practice to consult on innovative, sophisticated security and regulatory compliance protection for our clients, particularly those in high-risk verticals such as law, finance, healthcare, nonprofits and education,” explained Daniel Haurey, President of Exigent Technologies and a founding member of PIRC.

The need for companies in certain industries to guard against escalating digital attacks demands more specialized focus and expertise to deliver meaningful risk mitigation, he added. “For something this critical, you want a specialist. Companies entrusted with volumes of sensitive consumer data are facing exceedingly complex compliance controls, in addition to having a professional, ethical commitment to protect the sensitive data they work with and store on behalf of their customers. PIRC’s clear mission is to meet the needs of those clients.”

The PIRC team of certified cybersecurity consultants can provide exceptional levels of expertise regardless of a company’s current security stance. Plus, the team can work independently or side-by-side with a business’ existing IT department to enhance risk mitigation efforts.

In either role, PIRC offers a full range of solutions:

  • Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as-a-service enables full compliance and security leadership at a fraction of the cost of an in-house resource
  • Internal and external penetration
  • Web application penetration testing
  • Policy development and management
  • Risk assessments
  • Cybersecurity assessments
  • Cybersecurity education and awareness training in the NY area

Beyond its technical expertise, the PIRC team is well-versed in key regulatory compliance laws, including:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • DFS 23 NYCRR 500
  • The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)/Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

While PIRC will stand alone as a compliance and cybersecurity business, the PIRC team will collaborate with Exigent’s technology specialists to offer fully integrated technology solutions to customers, accessing Exigent’s knowledge base when and where needed, and vice versa.

“It’s our responsibility to guide customers through today’s incredibly complex maze of cybersecurity and regulatory compliance,” explains Haurey. “With PIRC, we’re bringing the best team to bear on exploring, understanding and implementing cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions built specifically for regulatory compliance demands in order to deliver exactly the protection our clients need.”
