Achieving Compliance with Access Control
For many organizations, regulatory compliance poses a daunting challenge. There are increasing numbers of laws to which you must adhere and the complexity of each can often be overwhelming. Some regulations are industry-specific, and others govern an organizational process or activity—but together they contribute to the difficulty of understanding and achieving overall compliance.
Microsoft recommends organizations map all regulations—along with their requirements—to a common framework in order to achieve compliance. The purpose of the framework is to offer companies a centralized, comprehensive way to plan, deploy, and manage a compliance program proactively, rather than having to react to each new regulation or lawsuit reactively.
This white paper describes the challenges that have led to the need for a framework, outlines the framework itself, and explains how Microsoft Windows access control technologies can be used to develop important components of an overall legal compliance program.
