I happen to work in the Financial Services vertical and it seems daily you hear someone talking about compliance. This topic is usually a mystery to most people except the lawyers. Well the Microsoft Solutions for Security and Compliance (MSSC) team published the Regulatory Compliance Planning Guide, which is also available for download as a Word doc.
If you deal with any of the following you will want to read.
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
- Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD)
- ISO 17799:2005 Code of Practice for Information Security
Thanks Rob Caron for the post.
