More than a few IT organizations approach anything to do with compliance as something that requires the bare minimum effort.

But a new survey of 160 information security experts working at 46 multinational companies, conducted by The Ponemon Institute on behalf for Tripwire, a provider of compliance management tools, finds that the companies that proactively manage compliance wind up paying a lot less over the long term than those that treat compliance as a cost to be avoided.

While no one can guarantee that their company will not be subjected to compliance-related penalties, the survey data shows that doing the bare minimum is roughly the equivalent of an invitation to financial disaster.
