The IT compliance challenge
These days, IT governance and compliance are key issues for many industries due to the type of data they process or the regulatory and legal rules that apply to them. This presents a challenge on many fronts. For a start, there’s the cost, which is increasing in response to an ever-growing number of breaches. Then there’s the time and discipline required. Because compliance can be onerous, some firms adopt a minimalist approach, with the resultant risk that information exposures remain.
In addition, compliance standards can be based on external requirements rather than an organisation’s own business or risk management objectives.
And, finally, there’s the fact that compliance standards often define minimum standards of IT governance. But these don’t guarantee security or best practice; merely that the compliance box has been ticked.
Fortunately, there is a better way. Which is why a growing number of organisations are turning to Huntsman Security as their go-to compliance solution provider.
