How Regulatory Compliance May Assist in Preventing a Data Breach

Often, the term compliance is associated with a “check the box” mentality. The positive or negative impact may not be directly correlated to an effective cyber security posture. However, regulatory compliance and cyber security effectiveness are not mutually exclusive objectives. In fact, not being able to demonstrate cyber security effectiveness through a risk-based compliance framework may ultimately be more damaging, more costly, than the impact of a data breach alone! In this presentation we will discuss the relationship between compliance and effective cyber security practices. Provide an overview of major regulatory requirements for various industries. Why simply checking the box does not equal security.

A lifelong learner, Loren is an experienced information assurance executive with over 40 years of IT experience in a global manufacturing company. He is recognized for developing innovative IT solutions across a world-wide team environment. In addition, Loren has 20 years of course development and teaching experiences in information assurance, and he has demonstrated his passion and commitment to sharing through teaching and practice because learning and sharing form the essence of knowledge.
