What is compliance?
Compliance is the adherence to rules and policies set by an industry forum or consortium.
These standards may pertain to:
- Website security, such as the policies and procedures set forth by the Certification Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum
- Data privacy, such as the regulations defined by the European Union for General Data Protection (GDPR)
- Industry, such as Know Your Customer (KYC) or Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations in finance and banking
