vBlog: Regulatory Compliance vs Operational Readiness (part 4 of 4): Government CO-OP

This month, I am taking a look at the differences between ‘Regulatory Compliance’ and ‘Operational Readiness’ through a series of videos.

Regulatory Compliance

The efforts to check the boxes before audits – often mandated by an industry (e.g. HIPAA), corporate (SOX) or legal (DOD 5.015.2-STD).

Operational Readiness

The IT efforts to ensure that key IT systems and data are resilient through high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR) or business continuity (BC) technologies and services.
