Challenges of Managed Service Providers with compliance – Part 2


Today in our mini-blog we are going to elaborate the MSP’s work methodology  challenge.
In the previous article we discussed the MSP’s dependence on third party tools and platforms to manage and maintain their client to be compliant with the regulations.
Today we are going to deep dive regarding evidence collection.

What is Evidence Collection in Compliance?

As part of compliance management, evidence collection refers to the process of documenting the compliance processes and outcomes of an organization, along with its results as part of compliance management. One of the best ways an organization can demonstrate its awareness of the importance of compliance management, is by documenting compliance processes and outcomes.
Evidence collection is one of the most challenging aspects of a successful compliance program. When an organization sets out to collect evidence and develop an evidence collection process, it is likely to encounter a number of challenges.
It is imperative that evidence keep pace with the organization’s controls. If a control changes, the documentation must also be updated. As an organization adopts new technologies, the evidence collection process must keep pace as well.

Until now, MSP’s work method was involving third parties to collect evidence
when it comes to one customer its less work, but when it comes to mange 100 customer its become hard and time spending to manage and maintain it, even though it makes the compliance audit very complex and can get false rejection.

Another MSPs’ work practice that can be harmful for companies is evidence screenshotting:
Screenshots are often used as evidence because they are a straightforward method of sharing a copy of information. Nonetheless, as with all digital files that all the time need to be maintain, they can be corrupted, manipulated, and edited in such a way that the truth can most likely be distorted.
