Drata's 2023 Compliance Trends Report

The inaugural zeitgeist research report tapping the pulse of risk and compliance.

The Rise of Continuous Compliance

Discover the latest trends and insights on risk and compliance based on input from established and enterprise companies.

There’s a mind shift on the horizon, and the way organizations implement risk and compliance programs will significantly change for the better. Currently, manual or point-in-time compliance is perceived as a box to check and occasionally a burden. This is not surprising as companies spend an average of 4,300 hours annually achieving or maintaining compliance, and their perception is based upon their outcomes.

Fortunately, in the past few years, compliance programs have seen great strides in scalability, better alignment with cybersecurity concepts, trust-building capabilities, and enabling sales teams. The rise of continuous compliance leads this shift.
