ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ostendio Inc., a leading provider of integrated risk management software, today announced the continued growth of the MyVCM Auditor Connect marketplace with DGC (DiCicco, Gulman & Company LLP), an accounting, tax and business advisory firm, joining MyVCM Auditor Connect™. This groundbreaking marketplace offers customers more choices in their third-party security and risk management audit firms. DGC will use the Ostendio MyVCM platform to guide its customers through security certifications.
MyVCM Auditor Connect reinvents the audit process, rendering spreadsheets, third-party file shares and storage devices effectively obsolete. MyVCM Auditor Connect brings the auditor and customer together on one platform where they can share real-time evidence in a secure location. Unlike previous methods of conducting audits, the Ostendio MyVCM platform provides access to evidence and documents that are always available, easy to update and optimized for collaboration. Customers being audited can track progress in real time and the increased collaboration and efficiency can save both auditors and customers up to 50 percent in the time and cost of an audit.
“MyVCM Auditor Connect marketplace is a significant step forward in modernizing an outdated process, making security audits more cost effective,” said Grant Elliott, CEO of Ostendio. “We are pleased that DGC has become one of the audit firms choosing to join the marketplace and connect with customers who are looking for forward-thinking, professional security audit firms to handle their audit process.”
By joining the MyVCM Auditor Connect marketplace, DGC will be able to provide prospective customers clear and transparent pricing based on customer-specific needs and engage with customers directly on the platform. Throughout the entire audit process, the Ostendio MyVCM platform will be used to manage relevant documents and simplify future audits by maintaining relevant company information securely.
“Joining the MyVCM Audit Connect partner program is an exciting partnership for our organization and our customers,” said Nick DeLena, CISSP, CISA, CRISC, CDPSE – Principal and Leader of DGC’s IT Risk Assurance & Advisory practice. “It will expand our reach and the Ostendio MyVCM platform will make our client’s complex audits, such as SOC 2, easier to manage on a recurring basis.” This will ease their administrative burden and provide greater efficiencies.
The number of data breaches and the theft of personal information continues to increase and companies are realizing that securing data and being able to demonstrate that compliance to international standards is a business imperative. Compliance frameworks such as SOC 2, CMMC, CIS Top 20, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and others are gaining in popularity as they set standards for compliance. Government regulations such as GDPR in Europe and CCPA in California have also increased the awareness of the need for data privacy.
