xyberShield Eases Regulatory Compliance
Data security and its impact on regulatory compliance have become key priorities for IT professionals, even in industries not traditionally thought of as regulated. Government entities and trade associations have established standards for proper maintenance of confidential customer information, access to sensitive data, and steps needed to safeguard against data breaches. Well-publicized data-security compromises have resulted in financial penalties, legal action, and severe damage to the reputation of the companies involved.
xyberShield helps you meet challenging regulatory requirements by protecting sensitive data and documenting compliance. Regulatory areas addressed by xyberShield include:
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
PCI DSS establishes a standard for cardholder data security, and governs all organizations in the payments ecosystem, including merchants, processors, issuers, and others. Compliance with PCI DSS requires the adoption of consistent, enterprise-wide data security measures.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
From an IT compliance standpoint, HIPAA is primarily concerned with the safeguarding of patient electronic protected health data (ePHI), including the prevention of unauthorized access to ePHI on corporate databases due to hacks/data breaches.
