Fact or fiction: Involving end users in the compliance program
As in most other aspects of information security, users typically are the weakest link in any compliance program. Therefore, it is vital that they be involved right from the beginning and have some stake in the outcome. Whether you're dealing with HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, FFIEC or all of the above, the key to a strong compliance program is serving the needs of your organization while being attuned to the risks they entail. This "fact or fiction" podcast will give listeners the tools needed to educate end users about the importance of compliance, what they can do to help and how compliance is part of an overall organizational approach to mitigating risk.
