In this episode, Scott, Tim Derrickson, and Roman Stanton explore the significance of cybersecurity compliance and its impact on businesses across various industries. They discuss regulatory requirements, both self-imposed and those established by standard-setting organizations like ISO and credit card companies. Understanding compliance is crucial, as it helps mitigate risks and provides a competitive advantage, especially for small businesses.
Navigating the challenges of achieving cybersecurity compliance can be daunting for businesses. Our experts emphasize the importance of planning and avoiding rushed attempts to achieve compliance overnight. They recommend implementing Plans of Action and Milestones (PoAMs) for DoD regulations and other risk management strategies, such as the Written Information Security Policy.
To become compliant, best practices involve meticulous planning and allocating ample time to implement necessary tools and measures. Compliance is an ongoing activity, not just a checklist to be ticked off. In the event of a data breach or cybersecurity incident, the regulatory implications can be severe. Compliance efforts, however, can significantly mitigate potential consequences and safeguard the company's reputation.
