Cloud computing lowers costs, increases efficiency and provides a flexible approach to provisioning IT services and solutions. But is the cloud secure? Can you entrust your sensitive data to the cloud where managing security, privacy, integrity and compliance is challenging? Maintaining lifetime control over high-value information poses unique data governance and operational issues, especially as regulatory pressures increase.
Companies must place cloud security within the context of each company’s overall information security and governance program, which includes risk management, data governance and industry regulation compliance. Enterprise-grade security provides comprehensive access controls at the application, infrastructure and process levels, covering information at rest, in use and in transit.
Data Privacy and Data Sovereignty
New data sovereignty laws are forcing every business to re-evaluate how they protect personally identifiable information and meet stringent new legal requirements. Global organizations need to understand the impact of emerging regulations on core business processes, consider how to manage risk and adjust their IT strategy – or face the possibility of severe financial penalties and lasting reputational damage.
Industries such as financial services, healthcare, pharmaceutical and insurance face increasing regulatory and reporting burdens. Even organizations in traditionally unregulated sectors are being scrutinized in how they manage and control sensitive and personally identifiable information.
