Customizable System Enables Affordable Compliance with Government Security Mandates including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and others

SEATTLE, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Milliman, the international firm of
consultants and actuaries, today announced the introduction of the Milliman
Security Management System (MS2.) The Web-based system offers a practical,
scaleable and customizable solution to compliance with government security
mandates including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FFIEC, GLBA and European Union
requirements. MS2 also provides clients with a platform and tools for
guarding the confidentiality of sensitive data and dealing with the growing
threat of identity theft.
"Despite significant investments in security, many companies still lack
consistent regulatory compliance controls throughout their organizations,"
said John Phelan, Ph.D., manager of MS2. "This is especially true in an age
of geographically diverse business units where acquisitions and outsourcing
have become commonplace," Phelan added.
