Compliance, Security and Network Services

Soma says
“As the pace of change increases,
the need to invest more time looking ahead
becomes a basic requirement fundamental
to your business’ longevity and success”
There are two areas to consider: internal compliance ensures adherence to the rules, regulations, and best practices as defined by internal policies, and external compliance is the practice of following the laws, guidelines, and regulations imposed by your industry.

Demand for Risk and Compliance experts in Australia has risen sharply over the last twelve months, and will continue to increase in the year ahead, according to a recent study

The study found that more than 60% of executives surveyed are seeking to employ as many as 5 additional resources to focus purely on Risk and Compliance management in the year ahead. When compared to the previous year’s Index, this is an increase of close to 20 per cent. New and evolving strategies are necessary within the compliance area of any industry. Once again soma can assist. Drawing from our consultative experience pool we will be able to insert support you in mapping a baseline compliance strategy that will flex with your business as inevitable changes within your field occur.

Technology continues to fuel rapid industry evolution, and the time between industry changes and disruption decreases proportionally as a result compliance requires a forward thinking & tested approach, monitored continuously so that your business can remain a true reflection of best practices. A once a year set and forget meeting is no longer effective. 

Other optional services

soma IT Audit

Are you brave enough to uncover the truth about your business?
If you’re not – you should be.

You can’t conduct your own audit without having a conflict of interest.

An IT audit doesn’t simply summarise your environment, equipment and frameworks. It extends to processes that impact the ongoing performance of your IT systems as well as industry best practice, documentation supporting your business processes, security and disaster recovery protocols.

We all like to think that our Network’s are secure and issue free. The fact is that a lot of the time you cannot control changes within your Network. Technically speaking an Audit will provide insight into an organization’s culture, policies and procedures. Audit results will assist board and management by verifying internal controls such as operating effectiveness, risk mitigation controls, and compliance with any relevant laws or regulations.
