On-demand webcast outlines compliance and IT risk management challenges and key steps to help organizations take a top-down approach to reduce audit burden and harmonize compliance efforts
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 30, 2009 -- According to the IT Policy Compliance Group, an organization spends 30-50 percent more on compliance and IT risk policy management than it should. Although these IT costs continue to rise, compliance can be achieved effectively and efficiently. In order to reduce the burden of an IT audit, organizations must understand the costs involved to demonstrate due care, which can be almost as harrowing as the fines and litigation costs for non-compliance.
Most midsize to large enterprises engage in so many compliance activities that it may seem as if they are endlessly undergoing one audit cycle or another. This audit tax manifests itself in a number of ways - hiring expensive outside consultants to re-allocating resources to prepare for audits. While no organization can completely sidestep the audit tax, it is possible to pay less than the competition.
In a webinar titled: Five Ways to Reduce Your IT Audit Burden, Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, outlines five methods to helping businesses reduce audit tax to a manageable line item. The webinar features Bryan Fish, director of product management, Lumension, and Brandon Dunlap, managing director of research, Brightfly.
The webinar takes an in-depth look at:
- Understanding current compliance and IT risk management challenges facing organizations today
- Ensuring efficient use of time and how to reduce overall costs to support compliance initiatives
- Five recommendations to reduce your IT audit burden over time
