Checklist: 7 Steps to IT Compliance

Chaz Hager January 31 2024


While it’s true that you don’t want to get hit with compliance fees or penalties, there are real benefits to IT security compliance standards. For starters, cybercrime remains one of the world’s most profitable industries—meaning cybercriminals are quite successful at leveraging every vulnerability they find.

Compliance standards aren’t arbitrary rules to be followed; they’re a helpful guide to ensure your business, including your customers, is protected to the best of its ability.  

Imagine the breach of trust your customers would feel if your business was hit by a cybersecurity attack, and you weren’t meeting compliant standards—meaning you weren’t doing what you needed to, to protect their data.  

Compliance is important, but it can also feel a bit overwhelming, along with security in general.  

Get a step-by-step guide to getting started, so you can go from paralyzed and unprotected to armed and ready to execute, with our 7 Steps to IT Compliance Checklist. Here’s what you’ll learn: 

  • Where to Begin: With a project as vast and all-encompassing as security, you need a specific starting place to avoid feeling overwhelmed. We’ll point you in the right direction to get started.  

  • How to Ensure Employee Buy-In: The reality is, compliance is an organization-wide effort, and you need your employees to be engaged and bought-in. But compliance can be tedious. We’ll help you create a plan to unify your team and get them on board.
