TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - October 03, 2013) -
BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc., a leading provider of compliance and attestation reporting services, will be a sponsor at the 2013 Gartner Fall Symposium & ITxpo. The event will take place at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida from October 6th through October 10th. BrightLine will at Booth ET-11 discussing compliance solutions, including its SSAE 16, SOC 2/3, FedRAMP, ISO, and PCI service lines.
On Monday, October 7th, BrightLine will also be speaking with attendees about mitigating the rising cost of compliance in the Emerging Technology Pavilion. There has been a dramatic rise in the demand for compliance and attestation services in recent years, which links well with Gartner's Hype Cycle Research Methodology. Avani Desai, a Director with BrightLine, will discuss how virtually every organization is now subject to compliance with at least one mandated standard. The primary objective of these mandates, regardless of whether they are enforced by the customer, government, industry standards, or internal policies, is to mitigate risks and protect an organization's sensitive data and IT environment. Unfortunately, many organizations see these mandates as a check the box exercise to reach compliance. Avani states, "Due to the increasing number of compliance efforts, the process has become reactive by finding the shortest and the cheapest path to compliance, without proactively deciding if the implemented controls are actually protecting the organizations data and critical systems. My presentation will discuss a more thoughtful approach of utilizing compliance investments to effectively untangle compliance requirements."
The Gartner Fall Symposium & ITxpo is the industry's largest and most strategic conference for CIOs and senior IT executives. More than 9,000 senior business and IT strategists, including more than 2,000 CIOs, will gather for the insights, tools and solutions they need to help ensure that their IT initiatives are key contributors to and drivers of their enterprise's success.
