Cybersecurity Regulations Set a New Diligence Standard
Effective & Defensible Steps for Compliance
When a breach happens, regulators will want to know what safeguards were in place to prevent the breach.
Your answer needs to be a good one.
Executives understand that data breaches are inevitable – but many don’t realize that most breaches are caused by third-party vendors, information control issues and the sheer volume of over-retained data. These risks have not been lost on the regulators. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, 23 NYCRR, Federal Acquisition Requirements and newly proposed regulations have provisions for addressing these risks.
While not all cybersecurity threats can be eliminated, companies must ensure reasonable processes are in place to address these risks and improve compliance. Companies need a a risk-based approach to protect their systems and data.
Leveraging best practice standards, tightly-structured processes and ongoing controls are the most effective and defensible ways to meet your obligations, respond to regulators and protect the legal and financial interests of your company.
You can’t protect sensitive data if you don’t know where it exists and how it’s moving around.
