In last few years the compliance and regulations industry has grown more stringent and has been streamlined or are in the process of being streamlined to meet the new technological advancements. Organizations, irrespective of in which sector, public or private, have come to rely heavily on Information Technology and Information Systems for their daily activities. However, assessing a company’s information security (InfoSec) and compliance completeness is a daunting challenge. Most compliance manuals are hundreds of pages long and the number of policies is also a big number.
CISOs and Compliance officers can spend a significant amount of time trying to apply the compliance regulations to their security framework. It’s impossible to remember the list of policies, let alone how to address all the security controls per the compliance requirements. When CISOs and Compliance officers try to map the policies to the security controls, this process is very manual and prone to human error. It can take years to meet compliance requirements with this slow and laborious process.
With increasing penetration of ‘BYOD’ and oncoming of ‘Internet of Things’ the Risk associated with technology continues to increase. Therefore, it becomes the responsibility of leaders and managers at all levels to understand their current standing and exposure and manage information security risk. The need for a Security Assessment approach that is effective, efficient and robust is there but still ‘One Pack Fits All’ strategy cannot be applied to Risk Assessments due to the varying nature of Information Systems employed in the organizations. Despite many Risk Assessment Methodologies and frameworks available, organizations still face many challenges to conduct an effective Risk Assessment.
Companies who are serious about their compliance should use an automated and detailed assessment platform, which will gather information from various departments, to fully understand the state of their InfoSec infrastructure with respect to compliance standards and business needs.
