Compliance and Audits: A Study in Tongues and Dialects


If you're here, your organization inevitably is responsible for managing and conforming to numerous regulatory and compliance requirements. All too often, you will find yourself at the mercy of an individual auditor's interpretation of these requirements. As security professionals, helping our customers meet compliance requirements through the use of security reporting tools, we can definitely relate to this scenario. This presentation will focus on various interpretations of compliance requirements that we have seen from our different customers working with various auditors across a wide range of industries. Our intent will be to draw attention to these differences, and seek to ultimately encourage compliance efforts to be less subjectively and more objectively focused.
