As you saw from last week’s audit plan hot spots article, ransomware tops the list of concerns for 2022. You also noticed how the first half of 2021 had an exponential increase of ransomware attacks.

The pandemic brought about a lot of changes for businesses that executives were not expecting, in any way shape or form. No one could have prepared for what came because that is how unexpected it was for the whole world, but everyone did their best.

Every business is subject to cybersecurity compliance regulations: from HIPAA to NIST 800-171; to GLBA, PCI DSS, FFIEC guidelines; and data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CPRA.
