Other regulated industries where IT is a core component to meet regulatory compliance and provide audit capability.
There are many aspects of regulatory compliance that must be tackled, from recording of voice calls, retention of emails (even if users delete), through to the security of data both from leakage and loss. In many cases, compliance simply cannot be achieved as a manual process and must be implemented as an IT system.
Compliance failures can result in heavy fines, severe damage to reputation, and potentially crippling loss of revenue from inability to trade. In the worst-case, process failures may even force companies to close.
