Data Security for Business & Regulatory Compliance

What is Regulatory Compliance?

Regulatory compliance is the practice of adhering to the laws, regulations, and guidelines that govern the collection, use, storage, and protection of sensitive data. The Immuta Data Security Platform streamlines compliance processes so you can improve collaboration across data, security, and compliance teams, ensure your data use is ethical, and build trust with your customers.

The Regulatory Compliance Challenge

As data use proliferates and threats to data increase in number and severity, the regulatory landscape is rapidly evolving. Nearly all organizations are now subject to at least one data regulation, with 75% adhering to 10 or more.

Manually keeping up with evolving regulatory requirements across all platforms, users, and geographies is a burden for even the most detail-oriented teams. As a result, many either lock data down until they can be sure its access is compliant, or open it and risk violations that, in addition to costing millions, could come at the expense of customers’ trust.

Enforce Policies with Ease and Transparency

Write and enforce policies from a single, centralized layer to provide transparency into how data is being protected. With Immuta’s plain language policy builder, legal and compliance stakeholders can understand, create, and approve policies without creating additional bottlenecks.

Protect Data with Advanced, Regulation-Specific Controls

Immuta’s privacy enhancing technologies (PETs), such as pseudonymization and k-anonymization, provide advanced protection that meets strict regulatory standards, while purpose-based restrictions simplify adherence to specific GDPR and HIPAA requirements.

Monitor and Audit Data Use On-Demand

Understand your sensitive data footprint, risk score, and how data is being accessed, so you can detect potential threats before they lead to compliance violations. Immuta’s data monitoring and audit reports make proving compliance fast and straightforward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I care about compliance and regulations?

Compliance and regulations are crucial to modern data security because they help maintain data subjects’ privacy and protect their information from falling into the hands of bad actors. Compliance and regulations also help to protect organizations from the legal, financial, or reputational damages that could result from data breaches, leaks, or misuse. Adhering to these standards is critical to maintaining an organization’s integrity and customer trust.

What are some key data security regulations and standards?

Some key data security regulations and standards include:

  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): Created by the European Union (EU) to protect its citizens privacy, the GDPR is one of the widest reaching regulatory compliance standards because it applies to any organization that leverages European citizens’ data or does business in the EU.
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA): A US-based regulation that mandates controls for protected health information (PHI), the HIPAA Privacy Rule requires a specific purpose for accessing PHI, and the Security Rule covers PHI storage and transmission.
  • The Service Organization Controls (SOC 1 & SOC 2): Created by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to provide audit reports and verification for an organization’s cybersecurity practices, SOC 1 concerns companies that process individuals’ financial data, and SOC 2 assesses companies’ data security in terms of accessibility, processing, confidentiality, integrity, and privacy.
  • The International Standard Organization 27001 (ISO 27001): Pertains to organizations’ information management and security systems, and how well equipped they are to protect business-related data about employees, financial status, and IP.
