The daily reality for many IT organizations is balancing the support of evolving and expanding infrastructure with flat budgets. The need to understand changing compliance requirements, then implement and maintain the tools and processes to meet them is daunting.
And it’s not only becoming compliant—it’s being able to prove you’ve taken those steps. Usually, this means finding and consolidating data from a variety of disparate sources—and then matching it back to the requirements.
Like most challenges, breaking it into more manageable steps can be a helpful approach. Many regulations and standards share common themes, as the ultimate goal is to reduce risk to your company and its customers.
