June 6, 2023 - Kenneth Mendelson thinks that the ADPPA is an important bill for IT leaders to watch. The highly publicized nature of data breaches and ransomware attacks highlight the necessity of maintaining compliance. “IT leaders can, and should, leverage any new regulatory requirements as a justification for increasing budgets for cybersecurity compliance,” Ken argues.
An effective cybersecurity program starts with a framework that includes a strong governance model, comprehensive policies and procedures, and a commitment to adhere to industry best practices and standards. It includes regular penetration testing to identify and evaluate gaps in network security, and a plan to make the digital environment more predictive and secure.
