Building a Compliance Architecture

Companies required to comply with one compliance mandate typically have several other regulatory compliance issues to address. For example, some companies required to respond to Sarbanes-Oxley(SOX) also may have to respond to Graham Leach Bliley, HIPAA, the Patriot Act or SEC rules.

eDelta can deploy tactical resources for clients to address immediate concerns or help forward-thinking organizations develop a strategy to efficiently manage cross-enterprise compliance initiatives. This unique, cost-saving approach entails the creation of an overall architecture for corporate compliance with a blueprint to identify commonalities in risks, controls, and remediation. The result is a cohesive, centralized structure that allows unified tracking, reporting, and budgeting.

Depending on the size and complexity of a company, building a compliance architecture can save millions of dollars when accounting for design, assessment, testing and audit costs across multiple business units.
