- Use Cases
Security compliance is a set of standards or best practices that ensure that customer data is kept secure and vulnerabilities to cyber attacks are at a minimum. Some areas of security compliance are mandatory, such as GDPR or CCPA, and businesses that aren’t compliant with security standards may be subject to regulatory fines or penalties.
Many areas of security compliance are around meeting best practices. Sometimes customers require proof that businesses meet certain security compliance standards, such as SOC 2 compliance for third-party SaaS providers.
