IT Compliance Management Opens Doors to New Business but Requires Certain Expertise

Providing IT services is hard enough to master. Technologies change daily, clients’ needs change hourly and you’re expected to stay on top of it all. Now clients are looking for IT Compliance services too.

While IT compliance management isn’t rocket science, it does require knowledge and information specific to each industry and regulatory body that has standards so you can guarantee the client is following the prescribed rules. Failure to adhere to standards can result in fines, security breaches, loss of certification, or other damage to your client’s business. Managing compliance to policy and network changes and updates prevents disruption of operations and helps save you, and your client, money.

While IT compliance management isn’t rocket science, it does require knowledge and information specific to each industry and regulatory body that has standards so you can guarantee the client is following the prescribed rules. Failure to adhere to standards can result in fines, security breaches, loss of certification, or other damage to your client’s business. 

Managing compliance with policy and network changes and updates prevents disruption of operations and helps save you, and your client, money. 

And there’s a great market for MSPs who offer IT compliance management services. In the early days of these standards, some companies preferred to pay fines instead of paying for compliance management. This worked for a while, but as the public continues to pay more attention to information breaches and unethical behavior, consequences for noncompliance are rising. 

A good compliance management software platform helps you deliver these services in a variety of industries without hiring subject matter experts in each segment. And many companies have compliance budgets that are outside of IT budgets, allowing you to get a bigger share of a client’s spend from more than one budget category. 

For example, Compliance Manager includes a Show Help feature delivers relevant context and background information for every section of every covered standard. You no longer need to refer to additional sources to learn what to do to validate each requirement. 

This is extremely important for new or changing standards, like CMMC – the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification standard for the 300,000 companies that do business with the Department of Defense. An MSP must know what to do for each of the 100+ security controls defined by the standard and Compliance Manager has a Show Help button for each one.
