Compliance Part (2)
In this compliance part 2, we will discuss compliance challenges, benefits, and penalties. If our readers haven’t known about what is compliance, please refer to compliance part-1 content.
Which challenges organizations will face while implementing compliances?
Validating the whole compliance is a pretty heavy concept. For example, I will introduce some challenges in implementing PCI-DSS compliance.
PCI-DSS provides a baseline of technical and operational requirements to protect account data. PCI-DSS compliance is followed up by payment cards provider industries such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and Discover companies. There are 12 task items in PCI-DSS compliance. When we divide these 12 items into details, here totally becomes over 200 task items.
➡ Challenge 1
Organizations need to invest millions of dollars to buy security products like IDS (Intrusion Detection System), Vulnerability Scanning Tools, Firewall Tunning Technology and SIEM log management products.
➡ Challenge 2
Organizations need to hire security consultants/technicians who can iron out the details to help you avoid compliance failure.
➡ Benefits of Compliance
The most valuable benefit of achieving compliance is a reputation as an organization. Our customers and business partners start to recognize that the organization has security awareness and take steps to achieve compliance program. Here becomes next sub-advantage that there will be a wide market share for a compliant organization because customers and third-party organizations trust our organization’s brand by keeping them safe while building a strong security infrastructure.
➡ Penalties of Compliance
We should also aware of disadvantages which organizations can face when they failed in following up compliance program. The failure to compliance auditing leads to penalty charges. If we don’t follow up respective compliances fully, we cannot widen our business to the global market. And the next disadvantage is that there may be data breaches anytime because our security infrastructure is not sure that it is intrusted security level or not. As the worst disadvantage, we can lose not only our being customers but also our organization future.
After reading this article, readers can get a comprehensive overview of compliance. And then organizations should consider compliances seriously if they want to develop their business organizations not only in local but also in global environments.
