Zero Trust Segmentation accelerates security compliance
Visibility and segmentation are essential to achieving cybersecurity compliance
It’s essential to comply with cybersecurity regulations
Compliance regulations foster a culture of cybersecurity awareness and best practices. This strengthens organizations’ ability to withstand and respond to cyber threats. Some specific cybersecurity compliance requirements include PCI-DSS, HIPAA, NERC CIP, and GDPR.
Enhance overall cybersecurity posture
Complex regulatory requirements
With so many industry-specific and regional regulations, organizations often must comply with multiple requirements at once, each with its own set of controls and guidelines.
As cyber threats evolve, so do security regulations. Organizations must stay up to date with the latest changes and adapt their security practices accordingly.
Compliance efforts often require a significant investment. Many organizations, especially smaller ones, may lack the resources needed to implement and maintain compliance.
Scope and scale
Organizations of different sizes and complexity have varying compliance scope. Larger, more complex organizations often face more challenges in achieving compliance.
Legacy systems may not meet modern security requirements, making it difficult to achieve compliance without significant updates or replacements. They can also be expensive and time-consuming to upgrade or replace.
What does cybersecurity compliance commonly require?
While details can vary, many regulations share common requirements based on cybersecurity frameworks like the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, ISO/IEC 27001, and CIS Critical Security Controls.
These frameworks typically require:
- Identify all assets and map interdependencies between them
- Protect assets from threats by containing the spread of an attack
- Detect unexpected behavior based on event data
- Respond to ongoing threats to minimize the impact
- Recover from an incident and restore the environment
- Minimize an attack’s impact on operations
Understand the scope
Gain complete visibility of all resources and their interdependencies to establish a clear picture of what needs to be compliant.
Protect critical assets attack surface
Leverage segmentation controls to proactively protect critical resources from unauthorized access and stop the spread of a breach.
Adapt in real time
As your IT environment evolves, scale visibility and security policy dynamically to ensure continuous compliance.
