360 Degrees of IT Compliance

A workbook to help reduce the risk of a data breach

It's hard to read the newspaper or watch the news without learning about another data breach like the one at Sony, Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, or, most recently, at the Office of Personnel Management. While it may feel that you or your business is an unlikely target, or that if you were hacked, the impact wouldn't be as dramatic, the simple fact is that it could be one of the more difficult events your business may ever need to overcome.

Research shows that the average cost of a data breach hovers around $200 per record compromised. That doesn’t include the hard-to-calculate, but very significant, costs like reputational repercussions, business distraction, class-action lawsuits, and regulatory fines, or the cost to restore individual identities.

To help you protect against and to become better prepared for such an attack, DRM partnered with SymQuest bring you this workbook on IT compliance and risk management for your business.

With this workbook, you'll learn about:

  • Building a secure network environment
  • Best practices to manage IT risks
  • Choosing a quality IT vendor
  • Preparing for and protecting against a breach
  • Responding to a breach
  • Cyber insurance risk and transfer
