Overwhelmed into Inaction

Compliance Challenge #8: Overwhelmed into Inaction

While it's important to understand the whole picture when it comes to your risk landscape and compliance requirements, some organizations become so overwhelmed by it all that they give up entirely, instead of making incremental improvements to their program and processes.

For example, if a company has gone through a series of failed compliance audits, it would be wise to focus attention on one area at a time, PCI for example. After they get it right, they can then move on to master the next area – instead of starting from the beginning all over again.

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.
