If organizations don’t have IT Security governance, risk management, and compliance measures in place, they are susceptible to breach, dissemination of data, or regulatory violations that can cripple the organization.
A regulatory violation (i.e., if an organization does not meet deadlines for disclosures) can mean legal penalties. Enterprises without an IT Security Strategic Plan are poorly suited to assess and manage IT related risks, in alignment with business objectives.
In any of these events, consequences include brand/reputational damages, increased cybersecurity insurance premiums, legal fees, and injunctions.
In addition to those risks, there’s a regulatory component to IT Security—the state of California mandates periodic risk assessments for public sector groups at the state, county, and city levels. To keep up with ever-changing mandates and to successfully meet regulatory mandates, you might need Strategic Risk Management Planning.
So, where do you begin to start this planning and make sure your organization is protected?

Great article that emphasizes the need for a strong cyber secuirty partner. One experienced in compliance and regulation. With so much noise in the cyber space, it is critical that orgainzations turn to subject matter experts and consultants like Kai partners for unbiased advisory. California’s cyber security law will be enforced in 2020. Organizations must prepare a proactive approach to stay ahead of the regulatory mandates and compliance initiative’s.
Thank you, Shannon!
Yes. Right on target. The regulatory curve is a sharp one indeed. Thank you Shannon!
