What is information technology compliance?

Information Technology (IT) compliance can mean different things for every company depending on the industry, the type of technology, and the digital security requirements. In addition, compliance is often mandated by a government organization or a customer’s contract, depending on the area of business.

Why are IT policies important?

Regardless of the size of a business, all companies should have documented policies that outline how an organization conducts business to satisfy external and internal requirements and help employees achieve company goals.  Technology policies help clarify for employees an organization’s expectations on the appropriate use of data, proper mitigation of data breaches, and how to respond to security threats, to name a few. IT policies also reduce a company’s risk from a human resources standpoint.

What are examples of compliance regulations?

GDPR, PCI-DSS, Breach Laws in the U.S., ITAR, and HIPAA are a few of the most common compliance regulations.

Whether it’s drafting IT policies or preparing your organization for a compliance audit, we at BlueArmor take the worry out of IT security so you can focus on other aspects of your business.

IT Policies

As noted above, all businesses must have documented IT policies. Additional guidelines include meeting external requirements from clients, vendors, regulation/compliance requirements, or investors for some companies.  Especially as people continue to work from remote locations or alternate between home offices and corporate facilities, having technology-related policies is a critical part of a cybersecurity program. Our Engineers are experts in drafting guidelines that help our clients adequately address this aspect of their business structure.

Compliance adherence and technology policy documentation are essential to the ongoing success and safety of your business. Failure to address these issues can result in revenue loss and, in some cases, a company shutdown. Our Engineers have the expertise to address these areas of your business effectively.

Typical policies include:

  • Acceptable Use Policy
  • Electronic Communication Policy
  • Disaster Recovery Policy
  • Encryption Policy
  • Password Policy
  • Mobile Device Policy
  • Remote Work Policy
  • Incidence Response Policy
