Compliance Is A Start, Not The End

Regulatory compliance efforts may help you get a bigger budget and reach a baseline security posture. But "compliant" does not necessarily mean "secure."

Checkbox security
Noble thoughts, to be sure. But who in the Dark Reading community can honestly say that their company does not practice check box security at least some of the time? My guess -- it's closer to 50 percent of checkbox security practices.  Am I right or wrong?

Re: Checkbox security
While "checking the box" is often a requirement and companies cannot get away with not focusing on "checking the box", it may be helpful to include "checking the box" as part of overall risk management strategy and look at the compliance activity from risk lense and not overlook other aspects that may take you beyond checkbox thinking and actually take care of risks that your company is better off not being exposed to.

We need to move to continuous adaptive compliance
Current compliance regiemes are labourious, provide a snapshot of compliance and offer little value for the effort.

We need to move to automation where evidence is gathered automatiacally and once for every aspect we need to report on, so we are not manually taking screenshots for PCI, SOX, HIPPA etc.  Setup once, gather as needed and report non compliance for investigation, that way you will be as close to full compliance most of the time.

Compliance does not equal security

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
