Depending on your industry, you may be subject to regulatory compliance regarding the protection and safeguarding of the data you use and collect. While industrial and governmental regulations such as HIPAA, PCI, SSAE, and SOX can be costly and time consuming for IT departments and CIOs to meet, the cost of non-compliance can be steep.
True North’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and cloud computing offerings 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, PCI DSS for payment card transactions, SOX for your financial records, or SSAE for your customer’s financial information, 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. Keeping your information confidential is your organization’s responsibility, as 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.
Non-compliance penalties for many regulations can range in the millions of dollars, or even jail time. 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.
Reducing The Costs of Acquiring Data Security Compliance
The amount of regulatory compliance you need will depend on the size of your organization, your market, and how you handle payments. There can be substantial costs of becoming compliant from both a financial standpoint and a time commitment perspective. 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
In addition, there are significant hurdles that come with the regulatory process. Many companies lack the resources to properly pursue compliance and, as a result, have to hire additional staff to complete the task.
