Your Challenge:

Most enterprises view compliance as a "must-do" expense rather than a "should-do," value-added activity.
IT is often left out of compliance discussions and is unaware of compliance requirements or non-compliance gaps.
Organizations generally wait to improve compliance until mandated changes are dictated following an adverse audit or assessment.

Our Advice:

Critical Insight

Don’t gamble recklessly with external compliance. Play a winning system and take calculated risks to stack the odds in your favor.
Take an agile approach to analyze your gaps and prioritize your remediations. You don’t always have to be fully compliant as long as your organization understands and can live with the consequences.

Impact and Result

Approach compliance proactively and derive value from the process by managing your compliance initiatives using a constant cycle.

You need to initiate the drive to conform with regulations and improve compliance.
You need to consistently assess the regulatory and business landscape to determine your compliance gaps.
You need to improve compliance and remediate non-compliance in an effective, tactical manner.
You need to confirm and assure compliance through regular adherence checks.
Info-Tech’s framework presented in this blueprint is compliant with COBIT MEA03 – Monitor, Evaluate, and Assess Compliance with External Compliance.

Take Control of Compliance Improvement to Conquer Every Audit

  1. 1. Take Control of Compliance Improvement to Conquer Every Audit. Don’t gamble recklessly with external compliance. Play a winning system and take calculated risks to stack the odds in your favor. Compliance improvement and optimization is generally initiated in response to new or changed compliance requirements, a mandate from the business, or an impending audit. This reactive approach to compliance improvement is not only disruptive to business and IT operations, but is also less effective than a proactive program. A reactive approach to compliance puts your organization at risk of: Punitive Fines: If your organization is being audited by a legal regulator, non-compliance can result in fines. Severe non-compliance can cost millions of dollars. Punitive Injunctions: Take credit card payments? Not anymore. Failing to comply with PCI can result in the revocation of credit card processing capability, costing your organization millions of dollars in lost revenue. Poor Perception of IT: Unless non-compliance has been previously disclosed to the business, IT (and often the CIO) will be deemed responsible for failure to comply. People lose their jobs over this. Exposure to Personal Liability: A system breach will leave you vulnerable to loss of goodwill, civil negligence litigation, or even criminal suits that could result in jail time. Mandated Changes: Changes driven by an adverse audit opinion often cannot be deferred. Mandated process changes and IT system enhancements can be disruptive to your daily operations and be expensive.
