Industry research has shown the opposite to be true. Convergence Networks specializes in cybersecurity solutions through its Security Services division. We provide two types of programs: ongoing services and one-time engagements

Cybersecurity Compliance Frameworks
In our experience, businesses servicing defense contracts are incredibly skilled at what they do. To continue their great work, compliance with DFARS is mandatory, and the requirements are broad and deep. We approach the challenge by isolating critical data, educating leadership and staff, and implementing security controls that maximize efficacy and optimize operations.
Staying ahead of the defense industry’s evolution from DFARS to CMMC. We have already submitted our application to become a Certified 3rd Party Assessor Organization. As an active member of the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition, we regularly contribute our expertise to peer learning events.
Most business leaders are faced with the specter of a cyber-attack, but simply don’t know how to begin fortifying their organization. NIST CSF is an excellent industry-agnostic cybersecurity framework that can serve as the foundation for a solid program and — when directed by a seasoned vCISO — transform the culture of an entire organization.
All our team members are intimately familiar with NIST CSF and have put it into practice at companies of all sizes. Through assessments, planning, and education, we guide businesses from trepidation to confidence, ready to not just survive but thrive in a dynamic cybersecurity landscape.
Whether your business accepts payment cards through a POS or PMS system, a home-grown payment application, or even a web terminal, our team is fluent in all of these systems and understand how each of them impacts compliance. We can work closely with you to redesign processes, train staff, and implement controls.
When we embark on the path to PCI compliance with an organization, we first examine where exactly the implementation of controls is non-negotiable to ensure data privacy and security. This often helps simplify the vast set of rules and requirements the framework covers, thereby reducing the associated costs.
Although HIPAA was established in 1996, businesses still face a lot of confusion about its requirements, especially outside the healthcare industry. Our team has charted clear paths toward compliance for a variety of organizations subject to HIPAA, including law firms and insurance agencies.
Our key strength is individualizing the approach to compliance. Beyond meeting the requirements for technical, administrative, and physical security controls, we work closely with you to enable operations to function as efficiently as possible.
As FERPA requirements are more broadly defined than those of other compliance frameworks, they can be challenging for organizations to understand, let alone implement. With extensive experience in this domain, our team can shed light on the practices that apply to your educational organization.
We dig deep to get the full picture of how your business intersects with FERPA regulations, parse any fine print in your contracts, then design controls that appropriately safeguard student data and embed them into your daily operations. Along the way, we engage and educate your staff to take charge of your cybersecurity.
This framework is for Canadian companies with less than 500 employees who seek a proactive approach to mitigate cybersecurity risks. This is a voluntary certification program with a framework designed to help businesses protect themselves against cyberattacks and raise the bar for cybersecurity, consumer confidence, and global competitiveness of Canadian SMBs.
To achieve certification, businesses must review and implement 13 critical cybersecurity controls outlined by the Canadian Center for Cybersecurity before applying for certification. We will work through this framework with you and your team in a Readiness Assessment to determine the value of your information systems and assets, threat level and identify your current cybersecurity gaps against the controls. We will then develop a remediation plan to address the gaps and consult with you throughout the journey on your path towards a CyberSecure Canada Certification.
If you are a business operating in the UK, or working with a UK based company, there are two levels of cybersecurity to consider: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. Both are government backed certification programs that define a set of controls to provide guidance on cybersecurity for the technology in use for your business. To be eligible for government contracts, businesses must meet one or both levels. Primary difference is Cyber Essentials Plus requires a third-party technical verification.
We will guide you through the Cyber Essentials Readiness Toolkit and design a remediation roadmap to help you navigate towards meeting the certification requirements for Cyber Essentials and the Cyber Essentials Plus verification by a third-party.
