But automation alone is not a panacea for compliance. Organisations must also associate deployment of automated security solutions with common sense operational strategies to ensure success.
At the most basic level, there is no single standardized framework or terminology that explicitly defines what your organisation must do for compliance. Instead, there are many frameworks with conflicting requirements.
