As Potentially Dangerous Risks Proliferate, Collaboration between IT, Security, and Compliance Is Tighter Than Ever
Redwood City, Calif., Feb. 21, 2018 – Actiance, the leader in communications compliance, archiving, and analytics, today announced results of a survey which illustrates the increasing intersection of security and compliance. The study, conducted in partnership with IDG Research, found that nearly all key tech stakeholders agree on the importance of cross-functional collaboration in managing risk and the value of establishing common control processes, and are increasingly moving toward a shared view of information risk.
Collectively, organizations today face an unprecedented volume and variety of information risks that have enterprise-wide impact, including increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity incidents, information leaks, aggressive regulatory sanctions, and the proliferation of communication channels outside the control of IT or Security. IT, Security, and Compliance personnel are seeing more and more of these risks possessing corporate-wide impact, which has led to greater overlap in their duties in fighting these threats. As a result, the majority of survey respondents highlighted the greater need for collaboration in the planning and execution of defense, monitoring, and recovery strategies.

Cruz, Senior Director, Information Governance, Actiance, Inc. “Firms are evolving toward a more holistic, collaborative model that incorporates the priorities of IT, security, and compliance stakeholders.”
