The Importance of Information Security Compliance
Business today is measured by the value of data, including product designs, patents, financial records, and importantly, customer confidential information such as credentials and credit cards. The SECURE ACCESS, transmission, processing and storage of this information is critical to the success of any business. Failure to protect not only results in direct business loss but hefty fines, legal liability and erosion of customer loyalty.
The global nature of the internet reduces the cost of collaboration significantly but carries significant business risks including an increasing number of cyber criminals. Unlike common criminals who target a specific business, these cyber thugs troll the internet for vulnerable businesses and attempt to compromise them, regardless of their country, size or type. Governments around the world are attempting to combat this threat by introducing numerous compliance regulations.
There is no standard formula to achieve compliance and every organization must examine its own business and IT infrastructure to come up with the most appropriate approach. However, there are common business drivers and trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobility that significantly impact the compliance process.
