The InfoSec Survival Guide to Continuous Compliance

In a business climate of emerging security risks and expanding regulatory requirements, security and compliance leaders are struggling under the pressure of maintaining ongoing compliance. A February 2023 AuditBoard flash poll of over 1,000 compliance, risk, and audit professionals across a range of industries revealed the biggest compliance challenges are: business and technical transformation (23%), talent management/strained resources (22%), and rapidly changing requirements (15%).

These findings are a compelling indication that, in the face of rapidly expanding compliance demands, InfoSec professionals are in dire need of a new approach. Continuous compliance, or continuous monitoring, can help. A strong continuous monitoring foundation allows an organization to quickly pivot and respond strategically as new compliance requirements come into scope. Continuous monitoring can also help course-correct the challenges and shortcomings of a traditional approach to compliance, such as point-in-time results that don’t capture issues that emerge later, limited resources, and stakeholder fatigue.

AuditBoard’s comprehensive InfoSec Survival Guide: Achieving Continuous Compliance offers solutions for every stage of the compliance life cycle. Authored by an experienced team of security and compliance leaders and experts, this guide was designed to help InfoSec teams of all maturity levels optimize their compliance practices from end to end with continuous monitoring.
