What is a Compliance Audit?

A compliance audit is a detailed review of your organization’s compliance with applicable regulatory standards. Whether you are required to comply with PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, NIST, or other requirements, Triaxiom is happy to partner with you to meet your compliance objectives. Our interview-driven process helps you accurately scope your environment, determine the applicability of controls, and validate your compliance efforts.
Compliance Audit


The scope of your audit determines which people, processes, and technologies are required to adhere to the applicable standard. The size of your scope will have a direct impact on the cost, complexity, and difficulty of meeting and maintaining compliance standards. Your auditor will work with you on strategies to minimize your scope to maximize your return on investment for compliance efforts.

Compliance Audit

Interpreting Application of Requirements

Depending on your scope and business processes, controls may be applicable to your entire environment, a subset of processes, or not applicable whatsoever. Your auditor will work with you to explain the requirements, its intent, and how it applies to your organization.

Compliance Audit

Independent, Third-Party Validation

By having a certified third-party organization attest to your security posture, you can better demonstrate to your clients or compliance bodies that you take security seriously and are meeting the applicable standards. This adds credibility to your compliance efforts and helps show due diligence in protecting the information you are entrusted with.




If your company stores, processes, or transmits credit card information, you are required to adhere to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). Triaxiom Security is certified by the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) as a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), allowing us to certify your PCI compliance efforts.


Healthcare organizations or those that interact with electronic protected health information (ePHI) are required to meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. Triaxiom can help you determine whether you are meeting the requirements laid out in the Security Rule and prove to outside organizations that you are maintaining compliance.


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has several control sets that are used to assess the security posture of a system or organization as a whole. Though often used by Government entities and related contractors, the controls in NIST 800-53 and 800-171 are equally applicable to some private use cases.


The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires all entities that collect, process, and/or store personally identifiable information (PII) of EU citizens adhere to a set of compliance standards. Triaxiom can assist you in meeting Article 32 of GDPR as it relates to the processes and controls used to protect electronic data throughout your network.
CIS Critical Controls

CIS Critical Controls

If your organization wants to demonstrate compliance with an industry-recognized standard, but does not fall into any of the above categories, the Center for Internet Security’s (CIS) Critical Security Controls may be a good fit. This internationally-recognized list of the most important security controls can be applied to your organization to demonstrate your adherence to information security best practices.
