Layered Tech's compliance management solutions free you to focus on your core business objectives.

What is Compliance Management?

Compliance management ensures businesses and their employees are following a set of rules. The rules are typically the compliance standard, and the actual process to administer the rules is compliance management.

Compliance management processes vary, but can be a combination of policies and procedures, documentation, internal and external audits, and security controls. Some processes are rigidly enforced, while others are open to interpretation.

How Compliance Management Affects Businesses

Compliance management is a cost of doing business for companies that handle sensitive data such as credit card transactions or personal health records. For example, for businesses that handle credit card data, security measures need to be in place to ensure that primary account information is not compromised. Account breaches and identity theft from hackers are becoming greater concerns as more people shop online. As a result, standards have been established for merchants to become PCI DSS compliant.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), developed by the PCI Security Standards Council, applies any time primary account numbers are stored, transmitted, and processed. With these standards, PCI compliant companies must perform specific high-level tasks to ensure account data is protected and security processes and procedures are consistent.

Determining Whether a Company's Compliance Management Plan is Effective

An auditor reviews the company's compliance management process annually to validate whether a merchant adheres to the PCI DSS standard. If all of the requirements are met, then the merchant either becomes or stays compliant, depending on its status before the audit was conducted.

Merchants are in compliance when they build and maintain networks designed to keep sensitive data secure, establish enhanced IT protocols, and enforce strong access measures to restrict unnecessary access to account information.

Some companies establish and maintain their own compliance management processes, while others outsource these tasks to PCI compliant hosting providers.
