Security- and privacy-related regulations used to be mainly specific to a single industry, such as healthcare or finance. Today they increasingly cover much wider areas, including any organization handling personal information on consumers, and many states and localities, as well as the federal government, have their own regulations or pending legislation. Determining which regulations an organization must comply with, identifying the organization’s compliance requirements, and being prepared to remediate issues and produce evidence of compliance on demand are tough challenges for nearly every organization today, especially in the increasingly dynamic and distributed environments most organizations have.
Fortunately, there’s a clear path forward: Be proactive when it comes to compliance. Taking a strategic approach, where the organization focuses on addressing its security and privacy risks first, then identifies gaps between its collective compliance requirements and the controls it has implemented, minimizes duplication of effort and wasted resources – not just now, but for many years to come. Compliance requirements are not going away. The sooner they’re tackled, the better.
