A new service from bluedog Security Monitoring allows users to check  their cybersecurity status at any time and compliance with standards such as Cyber Essentials.

The new compliance module offers almost instant reporting via an easy-to-understand dashboard. It can be used to reassure customers, provide up-to-date information for board meetings, or to produce reports to include in tenders and new business pitches.

The dashboard shows information on incident management, vulnerability, patch management and configuration amongst other factors. It also shows whether the company is complying with standards such as ISO 27001, GDPR, the NIST Cyber Security Framework and the payment industry standard PCI-DSS.

bluedog CTO Tim Thurlings said: “The new compliance module allows companies to see how secure and compliant their business is at a glance, and removes the time and effort involved in putting this information together for periodic reports.

“It helps businesses to meet and maintain standards and provide customers with the reassurance they need when selecting a supplier.”
