This involves infrastructure assessment to identify systems that are noncompliant due to regulatory, policy, or standards changes, misconfiguration, or any other reason.
Compliance management is important because noncompliance may result in fines, security breaches, loss of certification, or other damage to your business. Staying on top of compliance changes and updates prevents disruption of your business processes and saves money.
To successfully monitor and manage compliance for your business’s infrastructure, you’ll need to:
- Assess: Identify systems that are noncompliant, vulnerable, or unpatched.
- Organize: Prioritize remediation actions by effort, impact, and issue severity.
- Remediate: Quickly and easily patch and reconfigure systems that require action.
- Report: Validate that changes were applied and report change results.
