GYANT previously worked with BARR Advisory to achieve its first SOC 2 report. Through the SOC 2 engagement, GYANT built trust in BARR, walking away inspired to pursue its HITRUST certification, starting with the readiness assessment. As a scaling organization, GYANT was looking for an audit partner who understands modern cloud controls and could address issues related to its specific needs. With success from their SOC 2 examination, BARR was GYANT’s first choice when selecting a HITRUST Authorized External Assessor.
“From our first encounter, BARR struck me as professional and organized as well as knowledgeable and easy to talk to. While it initially felt daunting to obtain a HITRUST certification, our engagement team at BARR assured us that the readiness assessment would be manageable, and they’ve walked us through each step of the process,” said Kireyev.
Within a two-month period, GYANT met once a week for a deep dive with their BARR engagement lead, who provided a detailed description of each control in an easy-to-read deliverable. Through leveraging their efficiencies, the BARR HITRUST team completed GYANT’s readiness assessment by analyzing the necessary controls, submitting evidence, discussing the results, and remediating when necessary.
