While compliance has always been a key issue for businesses, over the last two years it has taken on a life of its own. All thanks to GDPR. But it’s important to remember that there’s a lot more to compliance, especially in the cloud world, than just data protection.
IT compliance and security are vital, especially in heavily regulated areas like financial services. But how does this tie in with the use of cloud and ensuring you’re getting the most out of your technology in terms of both investment and functionality?
The key is making sure your IT estate is enabling your business to grow, innovate and meet customer expectations, while remaining secure and compliant. The challenge in approaching compliance is that many businesses see it as a tick box exercise, a task to complete once and then move on. For those that see the value in maintaining compliance, the challenge then comes in managing the process, often using multiple disparate sources of data to identify gaps in compliance and formulate a plan for remediation.
This is one of the topics that will be discussed at the upcoming cloud compliance workshop hosted by Google and Pulsant.
Google’s Adrian Poole and Pulsant’s Javid Khan and Stuart Nielsen-Marsh will discuss the importance of continuous compliance in today’s fast-moving financial services sector, sharing in-depth knowledge and practical tips on how to make continuous compliance work.
They’ll look specifically at the Pulsant LayerV Continuous Compliance platform and how it can address key requirements around maintaining cloud compliance in a regulated environment.
The workshop will also demonstrate how Google Cloud helps protect your most sensitive data including customer PII, records, transaction data and payment card information – by offering identity management, network security, threat detection & response capabilities.
