Is Compliance Hurting More Than It's Helping?
Compliance Is Often In The Way Of What We Actually Want And Undermines Protection Of What

Why do so many security experts lament when their leadership choose a compliance first security
strategy? Because they know from experience that evidence of security is not proof of protection.
Security compliance is akin to ‘security theatre’. There’s lots of action and posing, it looks and
feels good, but in the end, the protection results aren’t aligned to real business risks.
There’s no other way to say it, a compliance first approach hurts more than it helps.
