Compliance for Cyber Security

In cyber security, there are many guidelines that must be adhered to. In case of non-compliance, these usually do not represent a vulnerability in the classical sense. We check existing compliance guidelines or adapt our security recommendation for your company.

Compliance for Digital IT Security

In compliance, there are many guidelines, laws and rules that must be adhered to for stable IT security. These IT security guidelines usually do not represent a vulnerability in the classic sense if they are not complied with. Some companies use compliance management to meet the guidelines or hire a compliance manager. IT compliance management involves determining the relevant security guidelines, deriving the compliance requirements and comprehensive reporting. Our IT compliance process includes reviewing existing compliance policies and adapting our security recommendation for your organization.

Definition and Explanation

What is IT Compliance?

IT compliance encompasses all relevant requirements, including laws, standards and rules that must be observed by a company's information technology (IT). For example, rules on information security, data retention and data protection must be observed. In Germany, for example, these compliance requirements include adherence to the DSGVO.

Special Compliance Requirements
Compliance requirements and IT security guidelines are diverse and often industry-dependent. Inadequate fulfillment of compliance security can result in claims for damages, fines and additional costs. However, not only monetary but also image damage can result from inadequate security guidelines if, for example, data protection is not complied with.
Enforce Hardening Measures
To prevent this damage, compliance security often needs to be tested in a special check to confirm required standards or to enforce hardening measures.
Careful Evaluation of the Guidelines
An absolute standard for IT security does not exist, so you should carefully evaluate your own policies. Most companies already have certain security policies or adapt our turingpoint security standard if required.
