About the Topic


“Methodologies for Compliance” Overview

Meeting the audit requirements for multiple compliance initiatives is becoming the norm for most companies. Regardless of whether they are government or industry-initiated, they collectively add a substantial burden on IT organizations without showing any measurable long-term benefit. In this session, we’ll discuss approaches to compliance that will move it from a costly reoccurring event to a sustainable process with added value for the delivery of business services.


Participants will learn more about:

  • Efficiency issues related to multiple compliance requirements when auditing in highly regulated industries
  • Moving from a treating audits as singular events to weaving them into your daily infrastructure management
  • What additional value can be derived from compliance beyond just making it through the audit
  • Becoming proactive in addressing a growing multi-compliance environment
  • The role of tools and automation in preparing for audits and maintaining compliance
