Failing to meet rules and guidelines set by compliance standards can result in fines, negative publicity and a loss of trust with clients, partners and employees. Challenges are increasing with employees and visitors using their own devices on company networks, and the growing use of remote network access, including transactions and list sharing. Laptop and mobile device theft poses more issues. It’s crucial to have current security policies that are understandable and enforceable.
