Compliance Services

-- Providing executive and technical leadership for SSAE16/SOC 1 and 2, PCI, and HIPAA areas.


Mike Daveler has dealt with many legal/regulatory, compliance and security issues; recent projects included performing a full PCI DSS 2.0 readiness assessment of a medical device division of a large multinational corporation, leading the SOC 1 Type 2 certification efforts for a leading prepaid debit card company, and also leading the efforts for a top cloud provider in attaining their SOC 2 Type 2/3 compliance certification.
