The Cybersecurity Compliance Guide: Stay Ahead of Evolving Threats

A new year means new opportunities, new resolutions to make, and new laws you need to follow to stay compliant.  

While that last one may not seem overly exciting, in terms of protecting your organization and staying out of potential legal trouble, achieving cybersecurity compliance is vital in 2021. 

Long gone are the days of highly-regulated industries needing to meet compliance regulations. In the current landscape, organizations of every type and size are finding themselves at risk and having to follow new rules to maintain compliance. That’s because cybercriminals are continuing to expand their list of potential targets.

We’ve seen it happen time and time again. Despite the overall awareness of threats increasing, the danger keeps growing. Every day brings new breaches. Stolen data forces victims to pay up. And with every attack, valuable time, money, and resources are all lost. 

In response to this escalating danger, lawmakers are enacting new laws for organizations of all types. It’s not hard to see why. One incident after the next has made the headlines the past few years: from the FBI warning that multi-factor authentication is being defeated, to thousands of recent attacks against financial institutions, school districts, and auto dealerships.  

Even fish tanks are no longer safe.
