In response to this issue, regulations (SOX, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FISMA, EU Data Privacy Directive) along with the rising number of regulatory mandates have increased the pressure to show immediate compliance, otherwise failure to ensure compliance can result in significant financial penalties and even jail time.
