KnowBe4 Eliminates Compliance Anxiety for Overworked IT Managers
Date:1/8/2014

Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

KnowBe4 announced the release of their new Compliance Manager, its latest cloud-based offering for IT managers who have to deal with the increasing complexity of managing extensive or multiple compliance requirements. KCM (KnowBe4 Compliance Manager) ™ enables IT managers to keep track of requirements, assign controls and tasks to get and stay compliant thereby reducing risks and the millions of dollars in costs associated with non-compliance or security breaches. Designed as a more affordable, Software-as-a-Service application, KCM consolidates multiple regulatory requirements and eliminates duplicate efforts preventing overlap and eliminating gaps.

“Getting ready for an audit for PCI, HIPAA, and GLBA can be very time consuming, and most IT managers dread the experience”, said Stu Sjouwerman (pronounced shower-man), Founder and CEO of KnowBe4. “It is expected that added pressure for security in 2014 will greatly impact the IT manager. Whether it is putting out fires caused by careless end-users or satisfying external auditors that all controls are in place, our KnowBe4 Compliance Manager will make it easier and save considerable time and costs of audits. KCM eliminates the pains of having to use multiple spreadsheets and spend duplicate efforts in the collection and compilation of compliance evidence with a centralized interface”.

According to the PCI Security Standards Council, lack of education and awareness around payment security and poor implementation and maintenance of the PCI Standards leads to many of the security breaches happening today. New changes in Dec 2013 (V3 standards) will provide increased stringency to validate that controls have been implemented properly, with more rigorous and specific testing procedures required. KCM simplifies this by implementing automated audit trails so actions taken to meet requirements as well as storage of compliance evidence documentation can easily be presented to external auditors. KCM comes with ready made compliance templates (e.g. PCI and HIPAA) and also allows the IT manager to create their own requirements within the application giving them the ability to track compliance with additional security policies and standards or regulations such as OSHA or FISMA.

According to a study done by KnowBe4, a security awareness training and compliance firm, and research firm ITIC, 80 percent of companies say that "end user carelessness" is the biggest security threat to their systems and networks. Along with automated compliance management, KnowBe4 recommends firms should conduct regular risk assessment reviews as part of their security plan, adopt the 'defense-in-depth' strategy and create a strong first layer security policy, including training of employees. KnowBe4 offers Kevin Mitnik Security Awareness Training as a new school security awareness training approach, teaching end users an effective way to understand what to look for and how to handle threats.
