[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, and welcome to the second episode of the series Continuous Compliance in a Chaotic World. My name is Thom Brainard, product marketing manager at Dell Software. And I'll be your host for the series.
If you're watching this series, you already know that IT governance risk and compliance, or GRC, play a vital role in the operations of most organizations. In the first episode, we talked about the changing IT landscape and common IT GRC failures. In this episode, we'll explain the importance of security and compliance, if they should be treated separately or not, and if the combining the two is a winning combination for IT GRC. Joining me today is Tim Sedlack, senior product manager for our IT GRC solutions here at Dell. Hey, welcome back, Tim.
Hi Thom, thanks again.
So Tim, what are your thoughts on security versus compliance?
Um, good question, Thom. I know people tend to think of them separately and sometimes there's even separate teams. But in all honesty, they go hand in hand. And when they are working together, both teams seem to benefit. So make sure that they're at least sharing information, if not the same tools.
So what Dell solutions help with those kinds of issues?
Well, here at Dell, we've got several solutions that can help in this area. And we tend to marry security and compliance, so that you gain the benefits of both. With products like Enterprise Reporter and Change Auditor, and Recovery Manager, we are considering both sides of the equation, so that you can gain the benefits of both governance and security.
OK, so in other words, we really do offer a complete solution?
I'd say so. We've got a full life cycle around governance, risk, and compliance. I mentioned it in the previous episode. I want to make sure we give people a broader picture of what we're talking about.
OK. So what advice do you give to organizations when preparing for or adjusting their IT GRC strategy?
My first and strongest piece of advice would be to make sure your teams are communicating and sharing the data necessary to make your environment more secure and more compliant. And we have tools that can help in that area.
That makes a lot of sense. Thank you, Tim. Great information.
Well, thank you, Thom.
Where can our viewers reach you if they have any questions or want more information?
Sure. You can reach me through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well, that's all we have time for today. Thanks for joining us, Tim. As you heard, Tim explained the importance of IT security and compliance and whether it's effective to treat them separately or together.
