Yesterday, Microsoft released the Regulatory Compliance Planning Guide.  This guide is available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=56114.

The Planning Guide:

  • shows IT professionals how they can use an IT controls framework to help address IT compliance requirements,
  • includes a mapping of several significant regulations and standards, including Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to a sample control framework, and
  • directs customers to Microsoft software and solutions that can help them address their compliance requirements.

The guide is available for online viewing and as a download.

If you have any questions or comments about the guide, please email them to secwish@microsoft.com.
