Man in front of a laptop looking fatigue

In the face of constantly increasing security and privacy standards, IT organizations struggle to hire and maintain staff with the experience and training necessary to meet compliance demands. In this day and age, it’s nearly impossible to be 100 percent compliant with all applicable standards.

The personal, professional, and organizational repercussions of the growing strain of audit fatigue are real. Constant visits from auditors, both internal and external, can be daunting, bringing with them the potential for fines and damage to an organization’s reputation. Audit fatigue is a symptom of the growing IT risk management burden that organizations face today. The very real costs of this burden range from implementation expenses and fines to increased health concerns and high turnover. With so much at risk, organizations would do well to find solutions to ease the compliance burden.
