Compliance demands are everywhere. In the past, only banks, publicly traded companies, and those in the health care industry needed to worry about compliance. Today, virtually every organization must deal with regulatory pressure in one form or another. Whether it’s government-mandated compliance such as SOX or HIPAA, industry-enforced regulations such as PCI DSS, or self-imposed controls such as ISO 27002, the alphabet soup of applicable regulations is growing, and the burden to satisfy these demands is becoming more and more challenging.
The logical reaction is to seek a line-by-line assessment of compliance (or non-compliance), often involving an auditor digging for a violation. If a violation is found, the organization is left scrambling to find a way to remediate the violation. Compliance doesn’t have to be complex or reactive. Quest Software’s Tim Sedlack and Todd Peterson suggest five simple tactics that – if followed – can dramatically improve an organization’s chances of passing its next compliance audit.
