What is security and compliance?

IT security is the practice of implementing effective technical controls to protect digital assets. Compliance is the application of that practice to meet a third party’s regulatory or contractual requirements.

Effective security protects your data from threats by controlling how that information is provided and used. Compliance demonstrates that your security program meets specific standards required by your industry and mandated by regulatory organizations.

Expert protection for added assurance and peace of mind

Together, information security and compliance are fundamental to business success. It’s about managing risk and protecting the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data using technology, process and vigilance.

While each plays a different role, security and compliance go hand-in-hand. Managing security well is necessary to ensure compliance. The ability to achieve compliance helps validate your security policies and procedures. Compliance demonstrates how your security program meets specific industry standards and regulatory mandates.
