Reasons To Buy
We Have A Solution To Keep You Secure & Compliant!
The most compelling reason to buy from Compliance Forge is that we have invested thousands of hours into our Information Security solutions with one goal in mind - to help our clients get a handle on their Information Security needs.
As Information Security professionals, we live and breathe security on a daily basis! Our driving ideal has been to remove the complexity of information security policies, enabling you to implement our solutions as easily as possible. If you look at the examples, you will notice the level of thought and detail that goes into our offerings. We offer solutions that are tailored to your business.
For the prices we charge, you simply will not find comparable, comprehensive IT security policies. Granted, there are websites with lower cost security policies, but they are incomplete when compared to our Written Information Security Program (WISP) or PCI DSS Policy. When we see competing solutions offering "Bronze, Silver & Gold" package levels, we know we are doing the right thing by providing solutions that are rooted in the actual requirements and best practices - we know that "a standard is a standard for a reason" and anything less could leave you exposed. We fundamentally disagree with models that offer varying levels of compliance coverage, since the lesser versions offer only partial coverage to businesses that buy them. Partial solutions are less than what would be considered "industry-recognized best practices" and are simply a waste of your money. Additionally, they should be avoided since they fail to comprehensively offer protection from both a compliance and holistic security program perspective.

Focus On Comprehensive Coverage - Best Practices & Common Compliance Frameworks
Our Written Information Security Program (WISP) and Digital Security Program (DSP) offerings are a professionally-written and cohesive compilation of Information Security policies, standards, procedures and guidelines designed with one purpose in mind - to secure your business with written information security policies that will meet your specific legal requirements. The WISP and DSP are founded on industry recognized best practices. Each control objective has a documented reference to its specific source of best practice so you have the ability to prove your policies are supported by industry standards.
We know the policies you need to have in place to meet the requirements for compliance. We follow proven, internationally-recognized standards for what Information Security policies should consist of. Many competitor sites unfortunately offer solutions that will leave you exposed and unprepared - when keeping your company in business and protected is the priority, there is no room for amateur solutions. The Written Information Security Program (WISP) and Digital Security Program (DSP) stand out from the competition in their coverage, depth, and price.
Written Information Security Program (WISP) & Digital Security Program (DSP) - Coverage For Federal Compliance Concerns
When taking into account "common" Federal and industry compliance concerns, you will notice that most share a common set of requirements. In the diagram below, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the most inclusive requirement. The reason for that is the PCI DSS is rooted in making ISO 17799 / 27002 "best practice" standards the foundation of their control requirements.
Since ComplianceForge's Written Information Security Program (WISP) was developed on the ISO 17799 / 27002 and NIST 800-53 frameworks, the WISP offers coverage for these common Information Security compliance requirements.
Written Information Security Program (WISP) & Digital Security Program (DSP) - Coverage For State Compliance Concerns
Massachusetts and Oregon are leading the country in Information Security laws. While most states have "breach notification" requirements, only these two states have in-depth Information Security Laws: Massachusetts (MA 201 CMR 17.00) & Oregon (ORS 646A.200 - Oregon Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act (OCITPA)). There are states requiring compliancy with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) such as Nevada SB227 . Even Minnesota is now requiring partial PCI DSS compliance. Since MA, NV and OR are all based on industry-recognized best practice standards, our Written Information Security Program (WISP) is inclusive of these state law requirements.
Since ComplianceForge's Written Information Security Program (WISP) was developed on the ISO 17799 / 27002 and NIST 800-53 frameworks, the WISP offers coverage for these common compliance requirements.
