CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As adherence to regulation and industry standards increases in complexity and necessity, IT industry leader Peak 10 is protecting against security fears with one of the industry's most comprehensive compliance programs. National IT infrastructure, connectivity and cloud services provider, Peak 10, obtained its Privacy Shield certification, which replaces the now invalidated Safe Harbor regulation, in addition to receiving final reports for SOC1, SOC2, SOC3 and HIPAA. It also renewed certifications for PCI DSS and ISO 27001.
Also new this year, Peak 10 leveraged ZenGRC, a governance, risk and compliance SaaS platform by Reciprocity Labs to administer and manage its compliance and internet security programs. ZenGRC provides Peak 10 the transparency to centralize communications as well as track and map policies, controls, risks and vendors.
"One of Peak 10's foundational pillars is to carefully adhere to industry-specific standards and provide our customers with the best protection of their critical data and applications," said David Kidd, vice president of governance, risk and compliance for Peak 10. "Our continued efforts were demonstrated this year by the measures we took to safeguard and maintain the facilities, infrastructure and systems our customers depend on."
In addition to compliance assessments and security certifications, Peak 10 successfully completed audits to renew both the Master Level CMSP and Cisco-Powered IaaS designations. These Cisco certifications reflect a rigorous examination of a provider's infrastructure, configuration, operations and documentation to conform to very high standards in providing cloud services to end customers.
