Endless Auditing Cycles

Compliance Challenge #7: Endless Auditing Cycles

Organizations should not rely on disjointed compliance systems that don't speak to one another – it often just results in duplicated efforts and missed or misunderstood requirements. This further drives up costs and decreases the effectiveness of overall compliance efforts. Not to mention the toll it takes on compliance professionals, who are forced to test and re-test the same compliance controls over and over again manually.

Organizations must find ways to streamline auditing by measuring compliance across a multitude of domains, including PCI, SOC1 and SOC2, HIPAA, FISMA/FedRAMP and ISO, at the same time.

Companies are struggling to understand and implement the right policies and controls to meet ever-evolving compliance mandates. Yet strict adherence to individual compliance standards means they've likely implemented controls they do not need, while inadvertently leaving out important controls necessary for an effective program. This cookie-cutter approach can actually leave organizations more exposed than ever before to potential security risks and controls failures.

In this slideshow, Unified Compliance CEO, Craig Isaacs, explores current compliance gaps, major compliance challenges and practical tips to create more effective compliance programs.
