Foundational Cybersecurity as the First Step Toward Compliance

October 23, 2018 | 2:00 PM EDT

Organizations often use multiple regulatory frameworks to guide their cybersecurity strategy. No matter which frameworks you are working toward, foundational cybersecurity is a good first step toward compliance. For example, PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, and others require computer systems be configured to hardening standards. Good cybersecurity goes beyond compliance – it can help protect your systems from some of the most pervasive attacks by cybercriminals.

What you'll learn:

  •  Approaches to cybersecurity including “frictionless security”
  • How to get back to cybersecurity basics by assessing risk and remediating it
  • Resources to help comply with various regulatory requirements
