Compliance and Best Practices

Evaluating Your Cyber Security Requirements

Leaders of organizations operating in heavily regulated sectors like healthcare, financial services, energy, and others, recognize the challenges and benefits of government and/or industry regulations.

In a world of unlimited needs and limited resources, ensuring the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of compliance activities is imperative. Many organizations are subject to multiple federal and state laws or regulations, as well as compliance with industry standards such as PCI-DSS.

With so many overlapping yet disjointed requirements, organizations struggle to achieve and maintain compliance. In turn, with the threats behind many of these regulations becoming increasingly persistent and dangerous, the patience of regulatory agencies has grown thin. Organizations who fail to implement foundational risk assessments and basic cyber security controls that have been mandated by these regulations will be held accountable.

The result is a notable uptick in the severity of post-breach sanctions and fines. This in turn makes operating a business more costly and introduces potential legal risks.
