Complying with laws and regulations is an increasing burden for organizations, from the board of directors down to the trenches of business. Over the past ten years there has been a significant and growing impact of regulatory compliance specifically on the IT department. In a nutshell: business is complex and global, and the demand upon IT to comply with an array of laws and regulations is requiring IT to change and adapt. The compliance challenges burdening IT are legion; this has put IT in an awkward position of reacting to regulations where it should be proactively managing IT controls and risk.
