Potential data breach analysis, and review of current data security controls, takes manual effort and resource away from other major projects within businesses and organisations.
It also does not provide management with a true “separation of duty” position – away from the operational side of the business - when it comes to providing external audit firms and industry regulators with evidence of independent monitoring and vulnerability management controls and processes to the organisation.
Independent, automated controls provide the answer to both -
1) Costs savings over existing manual audit processes, particularly when external audit firms and regulators come calling to review you current security controls processes, and
2) True “separation of duty” controls to the organisations for internal and external audit purposes.
