Complying with government regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act

(SOX) and Health Insurance Portability and the Accountability Act

(HIPAA), has been a daunting task for IT departments, soaking up huge

amounts of time and resources.

I recorded a great podcast with IT

consultant Jeff Davis on this subject. During the 16-minute podcast, he and I examine how IT departments are coping with

this monumental task and discuss ways to lessen the pain. Jeff shares

his real-world experience helping companies meet their compliance

requirements and we explore a new compliance-focused IT role—IS

Compliance Analyst.
