By: Schellman
May 30th, 2024

Back in 2018, the French government introduced—by way of its Public Health Code (Article L.1111-8)— HDS certification, mandating that all entities hosting personal health data must successfully achieve certification. Now, in 2024, they’ve published a new HDS framework with changes, expositions, and removals of language that organizations affected will need to know in order to comply.

As technology continues to evolve and become more robust, organizations have realized they need expertise and to be proactive in identifying risks and implementing controls. But even as new solutions are introduced, the backbone of many compliance and cybersecurity initiatives—including SOX— remains an organization’s internal technology general controls (ITGCs).

Remember when Tom Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs? They clearly felt he could lead their team to new heights, as they agreed to pay Brady $30 million a season. Such an investment was no doubt made easier given Brady’s playing history—the quarterback had previously led the New England Patriots to 17 division titles and six Super Bowl titles. The Bucs knew he was a proven winner, and elected to trust Brady could do the same with his new team.

Auditors. We’re an odd breed. “A necessary pain in the tuchus,” some may say. Admittedly, we’re not everyone’s cup of tea. In fact, in our 20+ years of experience, we’ve seen the word “auditor” invite various visceral responses. To be sure, organizations aren’t always enthusiastic about inviting us assessors in to do the requisite checks, despite the benefits of doing so (and despite being invited guests).

So you’ve committed to an audit. Your customers were asking, or maybe a new regulation came into effect that your organization is now subject to—whatever the reason was, you’ve got to get audited because your audit team is confirmed.

If you’re a parent, you’ve likely had the debate in the car with your young kids—they want to stop for McDonalds and you tell them, “we’ve got food at home.” From their perspective, they want what they want, but from yours, you understand you’ve already made an investment in perfectly good food at the grocery store, and you’re not about to spend any more money that you don’t have to.

Compliance and Certification | Assurance / Service Audits

Whether it’s shoes, real estate, or the latest smartphone, everyone’s always looking for a bargain. A central component of any decision you make to purchase or not purchase a good or service is the cost. It’s a little easier to determine that number when you’re buying (or not buying) a good because it’s generally the sticker price and, barring any lemony outliers, the thing does what you need it to.

If you ever went to college, you might remember how you considered where you wanted to go. The academic distinction, the on-campus facilities, their post-degree outlook—you wanted the best of the best education if you were going to pay a premium for the experience.
