The True Cost of Compliance With Data Protection Regulations

PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR – the alphabet soup of regulations can be overwhelming to many businesses. While these and other regulatory frameworks were created to protect individuals and companies, their complex requirements present a sizeable and pricey challenge to the organizations that must comply. And there are certainly more regulations to come.

Believe it or Not, Compliance Saves Money

While compliance with regulations like Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) come with hefty price tags, the alternative is far more costly. In fact, this recent report finds that the cost of non-compliance is 2.71 times higher than the cost of compliance. Organization that delay compliance efforts are taking an ill-advised risk which could ultimately yield a pricier penalty.
