If you’re bringing products to market or delivering exceptional services to customers, maintaining a security compliance program is one of the last things you WANT to do but one of the most important things that MUST be done. That is why outsourcing security compliance is necessary and a strategic decision to foster growth and reduce operational friction.
Although you would rather put time, money, and effort toward expanding your security capabilities instead of compliance, you can’t. Security compliance isn’t optional, and it’s getting more complicated and complex daily.
Security Compliance Challenges
Rapidly changing standards and an evolving IT environment complicate compliance and make building a security compliance team a challenge. Upskilling the team won’t prevent them from fire-fighting year after year. No audits leverage the same evidence, and it’s a constant challenge to complete them throughout the year.
Between team churn and reduction in force (RIF), compliance staff seem to cycle every two years, sometimes sooner. Make a bit of progress this year, and you’re likely to find yourself two steps back next year.
If you are beyond frustrated with scrambling to consistently meet regulatory mandates that shift on a dime, why are you doing this to yourself and your team? Yes, it’s true that you are responsible for maintaining your security compliance, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it yourself.
Compliance as a Service Fuels Business Growth, Reduces Resource Consumption
Outsourcing security compliance with a partner that offers Compliance as a Service (CaaS) allows you to:
- Reduce your spending on security compliance.
- Achieve year-over-year compliance no matter how many RIF mandates hit your inbox.
- Free up you and your staff’s time by not spending countless hours running your security compliance program and all its frameworks.
- Release your staff from the audit process and instead have framework experts advocating for you to your external auditors.
- Leverage an expanded compliance landscape without having to build it yourself.
- Transform security compliance from an expensive-to-develop-and-maintain competency into a simple budgetary line-item cost.
Most importantly, you’ll completely avoid the sunk time and resources consumed by a security compliance program that does not win you any new customers. A compliance program that’s executed internally can actually keep you from winning more accounts by consuming valuable resources.
Instead, leverage an expert security compliance partner’s expertise and CaaS to focus your resources on revenue generation and growth. Do you want to continue spending more time and resources figuring out changing compliance mandates on the fly? Give yourself the freedom to focus on growing your products and/or services and let your external partner handle compliance.
You’ll sleep better at night, and so will your customers.
