A-LIGN Security and Compliance Services To Present Webinar, “Reducing Audit Impact by A-LIGNing PCI DSS, SOC 1 & 2 Requirements”

Gene Geiger, Director at A-LIGN Security and Compliance Services will present a webinar to share practical recommendations for improving overall audit efficiency which will lead to reduced audit impact, audit costs and audit fatigue.

The presentation will take place on April 18, 2012 from 1-2 pm EST. All individuals/organizations are invited to attend the webinar. The goal of the discussion is to equip organizations that undergo multiple compliance audits annually with guidance on how to better prepare for, schedule and undergo audits from external auditors.

Mr. Geiger will give an overview of the most common compliance standards that organizations face, and discuss similarities between the standards that can be leveraged to improve audit efficiency. He will also provide examples where the requirements of PCI DSS, SSAE 16 (SOC 1) and the Trust Principles of SOC 2 overlap and how to then use the overlapping requirements to reduce the impact of the audit on your organization. The webinar will conclude with practical recommendations that all organizations can employ to improve the audit process while strengthening the internal control environment.
