IT departments increasingly find themselves spending ever more resources on compliance as laws, regulations and industry standards mandate increasing security awareness and the protection of sensitive data. Depending on the type of organization and its location, several data protection and security regulations may apply. Data protection and security regulations vary by geography and industry and can be difficult to understand. Some requirements such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) contain specific data handling and auditing requirements while others like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) require general control procedures. Many organizations use frameworks such as ISO27002 and COBIT to satisfy audit requirements. Enterprises both large and small in a wide variety of industries need to comply with regulations. The challenge for IT managers is to meet the numerous regulatory requirements in the most cost effective way possible.
