Challenges

Most organisations today deal with multiple information security related standards and regulation, these can include: PCI DSS, PoPI, ISO 27001, HIPPA, Cyber Essentials, SSAE 16, SOX and GDPR.

 

Repetition

Information security standards and regulations.

  • Many common control requirements are shared
  • Multiple control owners engage in the same actions
  • Multiple independent assessments evaluate the same processes

 

Financial Cost

Managing multiple standards can be costly.

  • Multiple sourcing and procurement are often individually quoted
  • Multiple vendors leads to higher management costs
  • Finance Department required to interact with numerous vendors

 

Time

Multiple assessments can mean less time to focus on business.

  • Preparing the assessment and sourcing quotes
  • Hosting the assessors in your offices and premises
  • Gathering evidence and remediating conflicting audit findings

 

Complexity

Multiple security standards can be difficult to manage.

  • Length and complexity of character passwords can differ
  • Training staff on the requirements of each standard
  • Multiple organisation interactions and numerous compliance tracking systems

Process

When complying with multiple standards, often the process to gain compliance can involve taking
multiple steps. These steps are often shared control requirements.
