The IT Industry is facing unprecedented challenges with digital transformation. Whether you’re an IT service provider, CIO, CTO, or work in a corporate IT department, the future state of your organization is weighing heavily on your team. To future-proof and take control in the face of stringent compliance requirements, security threats, and privacy and data breaches, IT professionals must be able to respond effectively to organizational change, technological advances, cybersecurity demands, and behavioral, legal, and regulatory compliance requirements.
Do you trust your software provider? What criteria does your organization use to regulate access and handling of sensitive data such as vendor data, client details, employee information, PII (personally identifiable information), PHI (protected health information), and vital contract information? With the amount of concern over security and data breach happening today, you should ensure that your confidential information is stored in a trusted environment. In recent years, leading organizations have proven data security compliance with a SOC 2 report, intended to assure clients that security controls and monitoring are in place. Data security is crucial when it comes to handling client data and accountability, and any company handling client data should consider SOC 2 compliance a requirement.
