To protect your reputation and earn your customers’ trust, it’s critical to ascertain your risk level, allocate appropriate levels of security, and prepare for information security compliance audits and assessments. Compliance isn’t simply developing security policies and satisfying internal audits. It’s about having a deep understanding of risk and how to manage it, so that your business can best utilize opportunities. It’s about establishing and assessing the right risk-based controls that support a comprehensive risk management program. Finally, it’s about collecting and communicating this information to facilitate corporate governance, risk, and compliance programs.
Failure to establish an effective security compliance program can have serious consequences. Increased risk of security breaches. Greater regulatory oversight. Fines for non-compliance. And perhaps worst of all, the loss of valued relationships. But assessing and maintaining compliance with multiple standards can be time-consuming, complex, and expensive.
