IT Security Frameworks and IT Security Compliance are both similar in how they guide businesses in terms of their security stature. Both tell a company how they should manage their information, including who can view and store it. However, there are keys factors that make IT Security Frameworks and IT Security Compliance different. For example, IT Frameworks guide what a company should do and have in place, while allowing room for discretion and flexibility. Meanwhile, IT Compliance dictates how a company needs to act and what standards must be followed. Compliance is often industry specific such as HIPAA for healthcare and FINRA for finance. Compliance can also be specific to certain business requirement such as PCI-DSS for companies handling credit card transactions, regardless of industry.
While IT Security Frameworks are optional in many of cases, it is highly advisable that a company select and use an industry recognized framework. Security frameworks act as a holistic guide and a foundational set of standards, most of which cover the requirements of common compliance policies. Most companies find that aligning to a single cybersecurity framework makes it much easier for them to meet their various compliance requirements.
