Data Compliance and Governance

Compliance Mandate — Protecting Customer and Organizational Data

There are a wide variety of regulations that place additional demands on IT departments: financial reporting regulations such as SOX and Basel II, health record privacy mandates like HIPAA and financial data privacy regulations such as PCI. These regulations require that organizations apply appropriate controls to protect and document the integrity and security of their access and use of sensitive data. The bottom-line is that organizations of all types must strictly enforce policies controlling access to, and use of applications and the underlying databases, and maintain an audit trail of who has accessed the information.

While organizations have made significant investments in systems to protect their network perimeters, these systems have proven they cannot prevent authorized system users from accessing data inappropriately. In fact, authorized insiders commit most cases of data theft and misuse. As more data is centralized in larger databases, accessed by a growing numbers of people and applications, the risk of data misuse is increasing.
