IT Compliance Standards

The IT governance and compliance needs of businesses vary widely. For small businesses, IT governance is often an informal process for the management of services that support the business. For larger companies, IT governance is a framework – a significant set of policies, procedures, and controls – that is applied organization-wide to enforce corporate standards and assure regulatory compliance.

Crossing Your “Ts” and Dotting Your “Is”

A governance framework helps you define and enact standards for processes such as disaster recovery, business continuity, online backup, and business resumption processes. There are dozens of IT governance frameworks that companies can follow based on their size, industry, and regulations, including the most common: CoBit, ITiL, and ISO 27001. Regulatory compliance generally drives which governance framework you need to follow. Common IT compliance standards include:

  • HIPAA
  • Sarbanes-Oxley
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley
  • SSAE 16 (Formerly SAS 70)
  • Data Privacy Laws and Regulations
