Words like “cybersecurity” and “Cyber Compliance” are often used interchangeably without much thought given to how they differ. Even though they are related practices, they are different approaches to the frequent problem of cybersecurity threats. Simply put, cybersecurity is the process put in place to protect your IT infrastructure, including data, networks, and any cloud assets or applications. Cyber Compliance is the adherence to federal and state cybersecurity regulations that are determined by a governing body or certification board. Whereas cybersecurity includes all the tools, processes, and operations in place to protect data, Cyber Compliance is aligning those security systems with one or more required documents. For example, the Written Information Security Program (WISP) document is a requirement that more and more states are demanding from businesses.
Written Information Security Protocol
The WISP has been used for years by companies to implement legal, administrative, and technical safeguards for the protection of personal information. It addresses electronic and physical methods of access, collection, storage, use, and transmission.
