Many factors influence an organization’s decision to adopt compliance as a practice. Driving factors could be a law, such as GDPR or HIPAA, proof of due diligence for insurance, unique client requirements, raising efficacy and processes not only in security but also in operations, and even marketing and/or public relations initiatives to instill confidence in clients and partners.

Common compliance frameworks and typical misconceptions about compliance are reviewed, and laws and best practices are defined.
