Achieving continuous compliance with security policy for IT infrastructure is no easy task. The IT security challenge is becoming even more difficult with talent shortages, shrinking threat windows, and rapidly increasing infrastructure complexity at scale. Cybersecurity controls now demand automation.
The possibility of achieving continuous compliance isn’t the pipe dream it used to be thanks to industry-validated CIS Benchmarks, and technology that provides collaboration for security operations teams and automation for system-level infrastructure security.
Cybersecurity controls as strategy
Security operations teams often use multiple regulatory frameworks to guide their cybersecurity strategy and the selection of which cybersecurity controls they’ll deploy. No matter the framework, foundational cybersecurity is a great first step toward compliance. For example, PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, and others require IT infrastructure to be configured to a hardened, gold standard.
Cybersecurity goes well beyond simple compliance – it helps protect mission-critical IT systems from the most pervasive cybercriminals and their relentless attacks.
Join Adam Montville, Center for Internet Security Chief Product Architect, and Mehul Revankar, SaltStack Director of Product to learn how your team can make significant strides towards continuous compliance today. Together we will provide an actionable plan for security operations teams to balance compliance and innovation in an era of digital transformation and never-ending security risks.
Says Montville: “With all the different control frameworks, there are a lot of different regimes. Several might apply to a single organization at once. Maybe you’re a hospital contracted to the U.S. government that processes card data. Then you’re looking at PCI, some flavor of a NIST framework, and HIPAA all at the same time—and that presents a challenge for your organization.
“So is there a good way to overcome that challenge? We believe there is.”
