[insert_vertical_space the_pixels="10"]Josh Session Notes[clear][insert_vertical_space the_pixels="20"] Purpose of this Session:This lesson offers an overview of compliance and why it is important. Compliance helps security and is the driving force behind security. However, sometimes it is hard to convince management to invest in proper security measures.Management - Convincing management compliance is in their best interest via utilizing the concept of reducing sales friction, the idea of compliance becomes more attractive to managers. By presenting security as a way to boost sales to existing customers and get more clients, management becomes more open to the concept of investing in strong security measures, which results in compliance. Essentially, compliance boils down to things on a list you check off to make sure they are running correctly and to accomplish this, these tasks actually need to be performed. Implementing these measures can happen in as quickly as two weeks, or take as long as a year. It depends on what is already in place and how open management is. Listen to/Download the MP3
