Depending on your industry, you may be subject to regulatory compliance regarding the protection and safeguarding of the data in your care. While industrial and governmental regulations such as HIPAA and PCI can be costly and time consuming for IT departments and CIOs to acquire, the cost of non-compliance can be steep.
True North’s infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and cloud computing services give you the luxury of having a secure platform for your network infrastructure while adhering to full data security compliance regulations. Whether it’s HIPAA for your health records or PCI DSS for payment card transactions, we have the compliance levels you need in place for true peace of mind.
Why You Need Data Security Compliance
Not being compliant with relevant regulations isn’t an option. Not only is keeping your confidential information your organization’s responsibility, it can leave you open to significant penalties and liabilities in the event of unauthorized access.
Today’s wide-ranging use of cloud computing technology presents a host of challenges to the end-user. With so many providers to choose from, ensuring you partner with a technology company that has a commitment to security is essential to protecting the integrity of your data.
HIPAA non-compliance penalties alone can range in the millions of dollars. That’s not to mention the potential legal liability you may face should protected data become public.
Given the penalties involved, it’s clear the cost of non-compliance far outweighs the cost of compliance. However, for many organizations, becoming compliant is still a significant expenditure. Let’s take a look at how these factors break down.
Acquiring Data Security Compliance
The level of regulatory compliance you choose will depend on the size of your organization and your ability to make the investment. There can be substantial costs from both a financial standpoint and in time commitment. Some of the financial costs that go into obtaining compliance include:
- Risk assessment audits
- Professional expenses including legal and IT consultations
- Costs to acquire ongoing compliance management tools
Additionally, there can be significant hurdles that come with the regulatory process. Many companies lack the resources to properly undertake the compliance journey and have to hire additional staff to complete the task.
