In the last decade, there has been an increasing focus on compliance and security. As a result, regulatory bodies have established severe penalties for non-compliance. Consequently, organizations put together compliance frameworks that are pertinent to their industry. To support such frameworks, security tool vendors have developed solutions to help these organizations easily automate security compliance. Following is a set of best practices that an organization can implement to help in their security compliance journey 

  1. Clear objectives: Ensure that all key stakeholders such as development, product security, and compliance teams are aligned.
  2. Define policies:  Be clear and specific on the security policies in order to be compliant. 
  3. Document these policies: One key aspect of audit is documentation. Therefore documenting the policies is extremely important.
  4. Document procedure: Clearly outline how you implement your security policies.
  5. Vulnerability management: Make sure you have the right VM controls in place that can detect vulnerabilities and provide clear remediation guidelines and steps.
  6. Continuous monitoring: To ensure continuous compliance, continuous monitoring is necessary so that you can stay ahead of any compliance requirements. 
  7. Change Control: Ensure that proper privilege access controls are in place.
  8. Data Encryption: Most compliance frameworks require data to be encrypted at rest and in transit.

Getting started on these eight best practices can ensure that organizations have a compliance framework that will help them to prepare and pass your audits.
