As organizations extend their data repositories from on premises platforms into SaaS applications like G Suite, Salesforce, Dropbox, and others, data governance and compliance regulations follow. Achieving both internal and external compliance requires deep understanding of what information is shared on those platforms. Internal compliance means adhering to organizational protocols, where protecting intellectual property and sensitive information is key. The other side of the equation is about satisfying industry compliance mandates such as PCI, HIPAA, and FISMA.
That all depends on your industry, business practices, customers, and even sensitivity to compliance. Below are a few of the common regulations we have come across, many others might apply.
A good starting point is to research and understand your organization’s unique compliance needs. Are you subject to PCI compliance? Are you a healthcare organization required to meet HIPAA compliance? A public company required to meet Sarbanes-Oxley compliance? And the list goes on. Learn more in our library of educational compliance guides.
Once you know what you’re looking for, it’s quite simple, really. Meeting compliance regulations and protecting sensitive data in the cloud starts with the ability to monitor the environment, intelligently inspect all information, surface potential concerns around sensitive data existence and exposure, and subsequently exercise control over its accessibility.
