Regulatory compliance of business computers and networks is a vitally important set of standards for any business operating within sectors regulated by federal, state or local laws such as the insurance, financial, legal and healthcare industries.
What is compliance?
Regulatory compliance refers to the federal, state and local laws or regulations required to keep your organization in good standing. Regulations may pertain to business security, procedures, or safety protocols that guarantee responsible practices and production. Failure to comply with such regulations can result in fines, recalls, negative public image and even legal action by regulatory institutions.
What are the benefits of being compliant?
- Sensitive information is safe and confidential. The catastrophic impact of unsecured data has never been more evident than in today’s climate of cyber attacks, corporate data breaches and mass data leaks. The reality is that it takes one malicious individual to bring a company to its knees and that these attacks are NOT just reserved for large corporations. Compliance minimizes the risk of your data falling prey to hackers, vengeful employees or other ne’er-do-wells that would do harm to your business.
- Keep pace with the competition. Staying up-to-date on the latest protocols and procedures in your industry will remove powerful leverage competitors can use against you in the marketplace. As a compliant company, your business will stand out as an advanced, professional and knowledgeable alternative to less-secure competitors who’ve failed to meet regulatory standards.
- Avoid penalties and protect your hard-earned reputation. Meeting compliance standards eliminates the chance of expensive fines, time-consuming legalities and halted business operations because of outdated, insufficient business practices. Protect your reputation as a trustworthy, responsible and professional business by prioritizing the safety and proper handling of your clients’ information by implementing the best practices available.
