Having a firm understanding of what it means to be "compliant" vs. having a strong security posture is important in order to build on a foundation that wont fold when either or both are being tested. Security Building a strong defense against data breach and the loss of control means establishing, maintaining and actively supporting a purposeful frontline. The days are gone when you could setup shop and use a big box solution to protect your assets. No matter what you size, industry, affiliation or sector, you need to know what you're doing and should always verify your solution with a trusted third party. Security is something every company will generally have in place and covers networks, devices and users to ensure each adheres to a set of standards and polices to provide the most effective protection within the scope of tools deployed. Compliance Is a detailed study of the data being handled both internally and externally as well as stored by a company. Being compliant is dependent on the company policy and framework the company has developed and will align with industry regulations for protecting and handling of data.
It’s EXTREMELY unfair, isn’t it? Victims of all other crimes – burglary, rape, mugging, carjacking, theft – get sympathy from others. They are called “victims,” and support comes flooding in, as it should. But if your business is the victim of a cybercrime attack where YOUR client or patient data is compromised, you will NOT get such sympathy. You will be labeled careless and irresponsible. You may even be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening.
