What is IT security?

IT security protects the integrity of information technologies like computer systems, networks, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. A business trying to compete in a world of digital transformation needs to understand how to adopt information security solutions that begin with design. This is what it means to "shift security left"—to make security a part of the infrastructure and product lifecycle as early as possible. This helps security be both proactive and reactive.

Why is cybersecurity important for business?

Traditionally, IT and cybersecurity was focused on fortifying, maintaining, and policing the datacenter perimeter—but today that perimeter is dissolving. The way we develop, deploy, integrate, and manage IT is dramatically changing. Public and hybrid clouds are redistributing responsibility for regulatory compliance and data security across multiple vendors. The adoption of containers at scale requires new methods of analyzing, securing, and updating the delivery of applications. Mobile apps are spread across a multitude of devices, and more and more infrastructure is moving from hardware to software. More complicated networks of devices or processes can increase the risk of security compromises, like insider threats or malware.

Compliance & Governance

What Is Compliance in IT?

IT compliance is a set of guidelines an organization must adhere to in order to ensure its business processes are secure. Each guideline within the IT compliance framework defines rules for data, digital communication, and IT infrastructure. The primary objective of IT compliance is to ensure that the company meets the security and privacy of certain countries, markets, and customers.

What is IT governance?

IT governance is an integral element of a Governance, Risk (Management), and Compliance (GRC) system that organizations can leverage to improve the management of their IT infrastructures. It ensures that IT investments support the organization’s core business objectives by effectively managing IT risks. By adhering to a formal framework, companies can generate measurable output toward achieving their objectives and goals.

IT governance focuses on the organization’s use of IT to achieve their plans. It provides a formal structure that helps align IT strategy with business goals, allowing companies to achieve measurable results with their IT infrastructures.

IT compliance, on the other hand, largely focuses on cybersecurity, monitoring, and protecting the privacy of user data in line with legal and regulatory requirements. It addresses specific third-party standards that require organizations to deploy defined IT systems for effective security.
