Dark Reading Launches New Tech Center On Security And Compliance

New Compliance Tech Center will cover relationship between security initiatives and compliance initiatives

Today Dark Reading launches a new feature: the Compliance Tech Center, a subsite of our website devoted to bringing you more detailed news, insight, and in-depth reporting on security issues as they relate to compliance with regulatory and industry standards.

This is the tenth of our Dark Reading Tech Centers, which are designed to provide you with a more focused view of specific issues, threats, and technologies in the world of IT security. The Tech Centers offer in-depth reports and studies, breaking news, and links to additional articles and information not found on the main Dark Reading site. Just as a traditional newspaper offers in-depth sections or supplements on sports, entertainment, or politics, the Dark Reading Tech Centers provide an additional range of news and information for readers who have an interest in specific aspects of IT security.

While Dark Reading has been covering compliance issues -- as they relate to enterprise security -- for more than five years, we are excited to have a special place in which to explore the compliance process and its impact on organizational security. With the introduction of the Compliance Tech Center, we will have the space and resources to study the various security-related aspects of compliance. The goal of the Compliance Tech Center is to help security professionals understand how compliance initiatives affect security initiatives, and how compliance efforts can sometimes accelerate -- or inhibit -- the broader enterprise security effort.

With this charter in mind, you can expect the Compliance Tech Center to take a slightly different perspective than the rest of the Dark Reading site: It will offer more tutorials and explanatory features designed to help illuminate the security aspects of all the different compliance requirements, including PCI, FFIEC, SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, NERC, and GLBA. Our hope is that we can help security professionals make some sense of this “alphabet soup” and get some insight on how these requirements might affect their day-to-day operations.

The goal of the Compliance Tech Center is to help you get the latest information on compliance requirements, particularly as they relate to security. In some cases, we’ll discuss the ways that security teams can use the compliance hammer to drive home the programs they want to see done in their enterprises. In other cases, we’ll discuss how compliance efforts can confuse or inhibit the security process, and what the security team can do about it.

Of course, the creation of the Compliance Tech Center doesn't mean that our coverage of standards-related security topics on the main Dark Reading site will decrease. You'll continue to see news and analysis of new developments in security requirements, and strategies for leveraging compliance initiatives will remain a topic of discussion for our bloggers and comments sections. But when you click on those stories or blogs, you'll be brought here, to the Compliance Tech Center, so that you can see the full range and depth of analysis that we offer on the topic, and gain additional context to support what you're reading.

We think the Compliance Tech Center will help you understand the security challenges that your organization could face, and guide you to make good decisions about the tools and practices that might work best. But in the end, this is your site. Please let us know what you think of the Tech Center, our coverage of compliance initiatives, and what you'd like to see us cover in more depth. We can't guarantee we'll answer every query with a story or in-depth report, but we'll do our best to meet your needs for additional information and analysis.

If it has to do with security and compliance, then you'll find it here. And if you don't, let us know -- our goal is to be the most comprehensive source of security-related compliance news and information on the Web.
