How companies leverage SaaS technology to manage information security
More and more business access important data and programs over the Internet – the “cloud” – instead of their servers and hard drives. Advances in software available through the cloud have led many to ask how it might be applied to information security. While risk management will never be fully automated, cloud-based compliance services are available that can improve information security efficiency and predictability.
The best example of cloud-based compliance Continuous Compliance and Assurance (CCA), an ongoing process of proactive risk management that delivers predictable, transparent and cost-effective results to meet information security goals. By enabling workflow automation through the cloud that monitors security risks, and their response to those risks, organizations know they are in compliance in real-time rather than waiting to find out whether they pass or fail their external audits.
A secondary advantage of cloud-based compliance applications such as CCA is the flexibility of the framework. The CCA portal can be customized to include specific rule interpretations and compensating controls. Moreover, its feature functionality is updated as standards change and needs evolve.
For many companies, cloud-based compliance technology is not only cost-effective, it also improves predictability, transparency and control. CCA delivers all of these benefits and more through the cloud.
