Compliance Management

The requirement to comply with government and industry regulations can put significant pressure on an organization; this pressure increases when cross-border issues emerge, and an organization must comply with Canadian and foreign regulations at the same time.

Most organizations understand the “why” or regulatory compliance; Digital Defence focuses on the “how” – specifically, how to rapidly achieve sustainable compliance in the most cost-effective manner.

DigitalDefence’s Compliance Management service educates employees about regulatory requirements, identifies gaps between current practices and regulated ones, and delivers a mediation plan that prioritizes items and identifies cost and time requirements. Our proprietary methodology is based on a scorecard approach that supports metrics and allows you to measure your progress to compliance.
