IT Compliance Services
You just want to make a great product, but you keep getting more notices about IT compliance standards you need to meet. You know you need to meet the standards to sustain your business, but frankly, they’re a pain and they have nothing to do with what you make.
IT Assurance can’t operate a CNC machine (very well) but we know exactly how to deal with IT regulatory and compliance standards so you can keep programming yours.
If your business IT is audited to meet certain standards such as government compliance, aerospace/NASA, aviation, medical, food or packaging regulations, you’ll need to make sure your computer systems are up to snuff.
Our team of IT professionals know what they’re doing, and can help you meet IT security compliance standards.
What is Regulatory Compliance?
Regulatory compliance sets the requirement that a business must follow certain standards, specifications, or policies.
In the manufacturing industry especially, the technology your business uses to manage internal systems such as production or accounting needs to meet specific quality and security requirements— which can affect your ability to get and maintain contract work.
Production & Machine Shop Regulations
You can be held to specific IT compliance standards if you are a DOD contractor or subcontractor, medical device or equipment manufacturer, food packager, or machine shop owner in the Portland, Oregon area.
The security and functionality of your tech is an important piece of your business that you don’t want to overlook, especially if you’re facing an IT audit that could cost you contracts.
NIST 800-171 IT Audit & Compliance Standards
For DoD contractors, subcontractors, or anyone working with CDI (Covered Defense Information) currently holding or looking for production contracts with the federal government of the United States, there are specific regulatory and compliance standards you’ll need to make sure you’re meeting.
The Department of Defense released a revised version of the NIST 800-171 compliance requirements, called ‘Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations’. This means the computer systems you use for your business need to pass their security controls standards.

Whether you’re dealing with compliance issues currently, or looking to upgrade your computer systems in order to be eligible for defense contracts, working with an experienced regulatory compliance consultant can help get your business on the right track.
