Ponemon Report: The True Cost of Compliance

The Ponemon Institute and Tripwire, Inc. conducted this study to determine the full economic impact of compliance activities for a representative sample of 46 multinational organizations. This benchmark study is the first to use empirical data to estimate the full cost of an organization’s compliance efforts, including the cost of non-compliance with laws, regulations and policies. To be as accurate as possible in this estimate, 160 functional leaders were interviewed in these organizations.
