Compliance, as it relates to security protocols, is becoming crucial – if not mandatory – to maintain, yet increasingly difficult to achieve.
For example, healthcare organizations must adhere to HIPAA requirements to protect patients’ personal health information (PHI), while any business that accepts credit or debit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to ensure the security of cardholders’ sensitive information.
Today’s threat landscape – and the safety measures against it – is rapidly evolving. According to an article by Forbes, data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first six months of 2019, with 3.2 billion of those records exposed by just eight breaches. Furthermore, the average data breach wasn’t detected until 90-180 days after it happened per the SANS Institute.
With these points in mind, data security should be at the forefront of every organization’s overarching IT strategy.
