Compliance Reporting: The Unspoken Enemy of Network Security

Compliance Reporting

When employees work offsite, the temptation to disregard compliance regulations is a threat to your internal data security.

How many compliance regulations is your organization trying to track? While maintaining only one set of compliance policies can be hard enough, what about 10 or more? Amazing amounts of time, manpower, infrastructure, and log-monitoring are dedicated to continuous compliance maintenance and the struggle becomes all the more difficult when preparing for an audit. According to the Ponemon Institute “True Cost of Compliance” study: “…while the average cost of compliance for the organizations in our study is $3.5 million, the cost of non-compliance is much greater. The average cost for organizations that experience non-compliance related problems is nearly $9.4 million.” The same report will tell us that on average, 27% of an IT department’s budget is driven by compliance regulations.

 

These numbers accurately display a dangerous phenomenon: loss of both security and revenue from within an organization itself. It is a problem that faces every industry, and as successful growth rate climbs, so does the insider threat. There is a bright side to the ongoing research, however. The more preemptive and solid an organization’s security measures are, the lower the changes of security breaches and total losses – and the lower the budgetary needs are for similar data security and compliance regulation monitoring moving forward. The experts agree: the more prepared you are, the less you’ll lose. And the trends of lax compliance only increases when employees are working from a vacation spot during their annual holiday time off from the office. It is during this time, that compliance reporting must become a priority for you and your organization.
