Many people are surprised to learn that costly data breaches can occur even when an organization has met IT compliance standards. Do you have all of your bases covered? If you aren’t sure, the security and success of your business could be at risk.
Common IT Compliance and Security Challenges
Keeping your organization in compliance with industry and federal rules can be challenging, and failure to comply can result in costly fines, penalties and loss of trust. In many cases, security breaches bring HIPAA, HITECH and PCI compliance threats to light. Employees who aren’t educated on how to protect your company’s sensitive data can put you at risk, as well a lack of safeguards to protect said data. Mobile devices, laptops, third-party apps and cloud service providers that don’t meet underlying regulatory requirements can all contribute to this risk.
The Power of Preparation
The average cost of a data breach is $4 million and counting, and the consequences for non-compliance can leave your business vulnerable to lawsuits, audits and more. Preparation is the key to prevention if you want your business to survive in response to a cybersecurity or IT compliance threat. After all, it’s not just your finances that are at risk – your business reputation is on the line, too.
