With numerous laws, regulations, and industry-specific requirements from diverse sources, becoming compliant can be a costly burden for organisations according to Dave Hansen, CEO, of security expert SafeNet.

“Though restrictive, regulatory  requirements cannot be ignored, as the ramifications of inaction can have sweeping effects to a company’s finances, and to their reputation. Organisations must consider all of the damage that can be done to their business if sensitive data is compromised — loss of sales and customer confidence, negative publicity, stock devaluation, and civil and criminal penalties,” said Hansen. “The challenge is to translate a myriad of high-level requirements into actionable and measurable controls without deploying disparate, multi-vendor point solutions, which create limited ‘islands’ of security that result in increased cost and complexity of data security.”
