The Role of Security Management in Achieving "Continuous Compliance"
Taking full advantage of the opportunity requires an environment that allows continuous compliance an integrated approach that helps permanently improve compliance processes and practices beyond individual projects or efforts. This requires compliance to be cost-effective, with appropriate controls, proof of controls, and the ability to securely manage public-facing assets, such as web-based business applications. This requires a strong security infrastructure that protects systems, applications, data and processes from unauthorized use or access. Companies that commit themselves to developing an integrated security management infrastructure for continuous compliance will initially focus on four critical capabilities: Identity Administration, Provisioning, Access Management, and Monitoring and Auditing.
This paper details the benefits of continuous compliance, which include reduction of risk and cost and an increase of efficiency and business agility.
