At a high level, operational services can be broken down into process and systems maintenance services.
Process Maintenance Services

Policies and processes are dynamic and can change radically with the addition of business product lines, expansion into new legal or regulatory geographies, or additions or modifications to the existing legal or regulatory landscape. Process maintenance ensures that the operational controls are aligned with both organizational goals and external drivers such as:
• Data Privacy Act
• SOX / GLBA
• EU Data Privacy Regulations
