Compliance requirements have been implemented and enforced across many different industries. A few examples of compliance-heavy industries are healthcare, financial services, defense, criminal justice, software and technology.
Some industries do not have formal audit requirements unless a breach or other data loss event occurs. These compliance are generally measured and monitored by companies internally, in order to avoid the ramifications of a cyber attack. The healthcare industry's HIPAA requirements are a good example of this.
Other industries require self-attestations to be submitted through a governing body's system. The more stringent industries require annual audits from authorized third-party auditors who provides a fully independent attestation of compliance after thorough review.
It is important to understand your organization's compliance requirements and perform regular internal reviews at a minimum. A 3rd party compliance review helps identify potential issues that were not previously recognized by your internal team so remediation efforts can be made prior to a formal audit.
