Regulatory Compliance Planning Guide

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.

The Regulatory Compliance Planning Guide helps you understand what you need to do to comply with various regulations. The guide shows how various regulations drive specific requirements for specific IT controls. The guide also shows the Microsoft software and solutions that can help address those control requirements.

From: Regulatory Compliance Planning Guide

This guide covers a variety of regulations, including the ever-popular Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD).

At this time, the guide doesn’t include coverage for using Team System to assist with compliance, which I hope we can include in an update to this guide.

For more information, see the Managing Regulatory Compliance with Microsoft Technology site.

    Are there any documents available that detail the use of Team System with regards to SOX complaince. I have a client who is interested in purchasing VSTS, but would like some further detail first.
