Simplify Compliance

Do I Need Compliance Framework?

If you’re a business owner and you’re unsure of if you need compliance frameworks or not, the simple answer is yes, you do.

From NIST to ISO, SOC to RAMP, these frameworks are there to aid your company by preventing impulsive decision-making based solely on marketing or sales pitches. While not all frameworks are mandatory, companies can choose to embrace them to meet customer expectations and satisfaction.

To learn more about why your company should have a compliance framework, take a look at our podcast with Semper Sec.

Undeniably, cyber compliance frameworks for businesses can be complex, but Airiam and Semper Sec are partnering up to simplify compliance for you!

Simplify Compliance Webinar

Cyber compliance can be complex, but to break it down into key points, here are a few things you should consider:

  • Understand the regulations
  • Assess your risks
  • Develop a cybersecurity policy
  • Implement security measures
  • Secure data storage
  • Train employees
  • Conduct regular audits
  • Monitor and respond to incidents
  • Vendor management
  • Maintain documentation

Focusing on the first point, Semper Sec and Airiam are hosting three webinars to simplify compliance frameworks for you. Presented by Art Ocain and Rob Carson, take a look below to see the frameworks they’ll cover.


In our first webinar, we covered RAMPs, or Risk Authorization and Management Programs. The three we focused on were FedRAMP, TX-RAMP, and StateRAMP. From common concerns to minimums needed for RAMP, Art and Rob answered commonly asked questions about RAMP. We were able to view a timeline of a sample FedRAMP LI-SaaS, review equivalency levels, and more.

In our next Simplify Compliance webinar, we’ll be taking a look at SOC (Security Operations Center) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization). In this webinar, we will be specifically talking about ISO27701 and ISO27001, as well as SOC 2. Rob will break down each of these frameworks and what considerations your business should have when implementing them.
