CoNetrix Incorporates COBIT, NIST, and PCI/DSS Standards into tandem

CoNetrix (www.CoNetrix.com), a national security and technology consulting firm, has announced a new enhancement for the Information Security Policies module of their tandem Security and Compliance software.  The new feature allows the policies to be mapped to the following standards: COBIT 4.1, NIST SP800-53 rev. 3, and PCI DSS vs. 1.2.1.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the ability to map their policies to the standards they follow,” said Neil Baldridge, Sr. VP and Manager of Security and Complianc e Services.  “As the number and diversity of financial institutions using the tandem software continues to increase, we recognized the need to reference additional guidance standards.  We hope this will make the Information Security Policies module even more useful and helpful for our customers.”

The software was initially released with mappings to FDIC, OCC, OTS, NCUA, Federal Reserve, and FFIEC information security regulations, examination handbooks, and guidance.  CoNetrix plans to also map the tandem software to other standards and regulations in the near future, including ISO/IEC.

About tandem:
tandem Security and Compliance software (www.CoNetrix.com/tandem) is the first comprehensive online Information Security Program software solution for financial institutions (banks, credit unions, savings associations, trust companies, etc.).  The software was developed to help financial institutions complete and maintain an Information Security Program which complies with GLBA and the Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards.  While tandem was designed as a complete solution from the ground up, it was fashioned into modules which allow for versatility.  The modules include risk assessment, policies, vendor management, and business continuity planning.
