1

Know Compliance Is Just a Baseline

Compliance is a nice foundation to security, but it’s just a baseline. The smart approach is to build a sound security strategy and environment that will go above and beyond basic compliance requirements. The investment in a compliant hosting solution will better protect data, customers and your business in the long run.

Much of the legwork outlined in Steps 3-6 may be minimized if you partner with a proven security expert that can protect your data in a compliant hosting environment. This compliant partner should be able to provide the necessary paperwork for your audit. The right vendor also will offer consultation through other aspects of the audit, if necessary.

3

KNOW YOUR DATA

You can’t enable proper cyber security or comply with regulations if you don’t know what data you store, transmit or access. Map and classify all your data so you know what data types you have, which are in the scope of various compliance requirements (e.g., PCI, HIPAA, FACTA) and where they are located.

4

Understand Requirements

READ POST

Each regulation is different — and some are more prescriptive than others (e.g., PCI). Start your journey by first familiarizing yourself with any regulations that affect your data. Enlist the help of compliance experts or certified auditors to gain a deeper understanding of the process.

5

Map Controls to Regulations

It’s time. At this stage, you’ll begin aligning your environment and data with the secure cloud controls of specific requirements. As mentioned, some regulations are more prescriptive than others, so there may a handful of judgment calls. A qualified security vendor will be able to share this burden with you and minimize some of the work — particularly if they are already securing your data in a PCI or HIPAA compliant cloud environment.

6

Follow Audit Best Practices

DOWNLOAD VANTAGE POINT

Document everything about your security compliance — environment, data, workloads, internal tests, policies, technology, controls, third-party access, etc. — for your auditor. This will not only make his or her job easier, but will prove that you’re organized, proactive and detailed-oriented. It’s also advisable to collect two or three examples of clear and comprehensive evidence that shows you’ve met each control.
