In addition to other management roles while employed by EDS (later purchased by HP) we engaged with account that was governed by federal regulations. Compliance to their security standards was essential to assure the business could maintain operations.
I managed a team that was responsible for the security compliance monitoring/reporting as well as development of an extensive web application to extend capabilities the compliance scan engine we utilized to monitor the compliance to security standards.
This global team was spread across three contents, with the core working remote in the US, development staff based in India, and operations support in Costa Rica.
When we were brought into this environment my team succeeded in providing a single check point on a quarterly basis that was meeting 70%. At the time I left to move on to my next opportunity we were maintaining 98%+ compliance on a quarterly basis and performing enterprise wide scans weekly around the globe.
