Achieving legal compliance with cybersecurity regulations

Faced with a growing number of cyber threats, many governments and industries have enacted regulations and standards designed to protect data, critical infrastructure and organizations large and small. A variety of regulatory frameworks today govern how organizations must secure customer data, manage cyber risk in the supply chain, adopt strong security controls and protect data privacy, among other objectives.

The rapidly changing nature of these threats means that regulatory frameworks are also constantly evolving, creating significant challenges for governance, risk and compliance (GRC) efforts. To ensure legal compliance with cybersecurity regulations, risk and security teams need powerful tools that can automate tasks and streamline the complex processes involved in security risk management. 

Cybersixgill can help. Offering a suite of security compliance and risk solutions as part of an industry-leading threat intelligence platform, Cybersixgill delivers the tools that organizations need to achieve and demonstrate legal compliance while minimizing the burden on risk and security teams.

What legal compliance solutions must achieve

Legal compliance solutions help risk and security teams achieve certain objectives as their organizations develop a risk management strategy.

Reduce the burden of risk assessment

Every business must perform a formal risk assessment to ensure cybersecurity compliance and coverage. Risk assessments have become a requirement in many compliance regulations – for example, businesses are now required to perform a risk assessment to continue working within the U.S. supply chain. Legal compliance solutions can help to minimize the burden of these assessments by eliminating compliance silos, reducing security assessment control creep, minimizing headcount required for audit and security reporting, and extending the value of existing technology investments.

Demonstrate compliance 

Organizations are often required to maintain complete records and reporting that prove to various regulatory bodies that the business is in compliance with regulations and mandates. Legal compliance solutions like continuous cyber security monitoring can provide the data and reporting required to demonstrate that the business is meeting compliance, regulatory and legal obligations.

Minimize costs 

Many companies are overburdened or lack the expertise required to perform proper security assessments in a cost-efficient way. Security and risk teams need solutions that can help to reduce the cost of cyclical security and IT audits by automating processes and allowing teams with a limited headcount to keep up with the requirements of legal compliance.

Monitor supply chain risk

Many organizations struggle with the requirement to prove that their own security controls are valid and effective while also managing risk within the supply chain. Superior legal compliance solutions must simplify supply chain monitoring and third-party risk management.

Accelerate threat response

Ultimately, cybersecurity regulations are designed to protect organizations from the adverse effects of breaches and cyberattacks. As risk and security teams implement legal compliance solutions, they must look for technologies that can help to manage risk in a more proactive way to accelerate threat response mitigation and remediation.

Legal compliance solutions from Cybersixgill

Cybersixgill offers a threat intelligence platform that captures, processes and alerts risk and security teams to emerging threats and indicators of compromise (IOCs) as they surface on the clear, deep and dark web. By covertly extracting data from a wide range of sources, Cybersixgill’s solutions help organizations discover what attackers are planning before they strike.

To help customers align their security concerns with their regulatory responsibilities and mandates, Cybersixgill has launched the cyber threat intelligence industry’s first Security Compliance and Risk program. While Cybersixgill can help companies in all sectors – especially businesses in the regulatory-heavy retail, healthcare and financial verticals – to achieve continuous compliance with mandatory regulations and frameworks through GRC-targeted automation and reporting.

Cybersixgill’s legal compliance solutions include:

  • Vulnerability Analysis and Prioritization Sanity Baseline Check. This compliance gap and vulnerability analysis solution can quickly prioritize and identify gaps and security risks within an organization’s security posture, supporting many mandated legal compliance requirements. Offering native support for compliance and gap analysis, this Cybersixgill solution identifies control problems that could slip through the normal process.

  • Digital Foot-printing Analysis and Discovery. This solution provides regulatory-targeted digital foot-printing to disclose and map an organization’s exposure across the clear, deep and dark web. With this technology, security teams can uncover data that may be unknowingly exposed, stolen or for sale on the dark web, putting customers at risk and jeopardizing legal compliance.

  • Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Posture Analysis. This solution automatically targets intelligence that is relevant to risk assessment procedures. Security teams can rely on this Cybersixgill solution to uncover and prioritize threats, vulnerabilities and gaps within in-scope audited systems.

  • Due Diligence Audit Reporting for Compliance. This Cybersixgill solution provides context to the proactive collection of threat intelligence to support ongoing continuous legal compliance. This technology enriches security risk assessments and adds credibility and efficacy to audit findings to prioritize vulnerabilities, risks and threats more effectively than typical inspections.

What is legal compliance in cybersecurity?

In the field of cybersecurity, legal compliance is the task of adhering to standards and regulatory requirements enacted by governments and industry authorities. Legal compliance is usually achieved by putting in place security controls that govern how organizations protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data that is stored, processed, integrated or transferred within the organization.

What are the benefits of legal compliance?

By ensuring legal compliance with cybersecurity regulations, organizations can ensure the validity and efficacy of their security controls, enabling them to avoid legal fines and litigation that result from noncompliance. As a result of compliance, organizations can more effectively maintain a strong security posture, prevent data breaches, protect customer data and maintain a positive reputation.
