The threats of today’s technologically-centered world are numerous and growing. In response, governments globally are increasing the amount, strength, and intricacy of regulations to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of consumer and corporate information.

 

These regulations include laws that: establish and implement controls, protect and assess compliance issues, identify and remediate deviations, and provide reporting about your organization’s compliance. Some of these regulations are broadly applicable laws such as SOX, PCI DSS, EFTA, C-TPAT, FAST, COPPA, FACTA, and FRCP; some of these regulations are industry-specific laws such as FISMA, NERC, HITECH, HIPAA, or PSQIA.

 

No matter what your industry, your organization is morally responsible to your clients and consumers, and legally responsible to your government, to uphold all of the applicable IT security standards.

 

We understand that the sheer degree and intricacy of these regulations can be costly and time-consuming to evaluate and implement.
