Data Compliance Solutions

Regulatory mandates are nothing new, but in most organizations, the pressure, cost, and effort required to sustain data compliance are reaching unprecedented levels.

Organizations too often embark on compliance projects that patch holes in the system, only to have to restart the process all over when the next audit or mandate comes along. A new approach is needed in order to cost-efficiently and effectively meet compliance obligations.

By providing qualified electronic signature, Trust Service Providers allow both signatory and recipient a higher level of convenience and security.
  • EU's GDPR: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) harmonizes data protection regulations throughout the EU and establishes data breach notification requirements and fines. Our solutions enable organizations to deploy appropriate security controls to adhere to GDPR and avoid severe penalties.
  • NESA's UAE IAS Regulation: To protect the UAE’s critical data information infrastructure and improve national cyber security, the National Electronic Security Authority (NESA), has produced the UAE Information Assurance Standards (UAE IAS), which is a set of standards and guidelines for government entities in critical sectors. Compliance with these standards is mandatory for all government organizations, semi-government organizations and business organizations that are identified as critical infrastructure to UAE.
  • PIPEDA Compliance: SafeNet solutions are ideally suited for addressing Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), which establishes laws that regulate the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by private sector organizations.
  • State Breach Notification Laws: Modeled after California's S.B. 1386, many U.S. state laws mandate individuals be notified when their unencrypted personal information was put at risk by a data breach.

A Better Approach to Data Compliance

The number of relevant mandates has increased over the past few years, and the guidelines, rules, and interpretations of each regulation continue to evolve, as well as the infrastructures and assets that need to be protected—and the risks they're exposed to.

Gemalto believes that implementing an infrastructure to centrally support, manage, and enforce policy is the most effective approach for passing audits, complying with regulations, and meeting business goals.

We can help you build a Compliance Infrastructure with the following components to eliminate data security creep and silos.

Data Compliance Infrastructure

Establishing a central point of control and visibility for managing encryption technologies, keys, policies, logging and audits, access controls are critical to the ability to "prove" control of your data. This concept is also essential to enforcing separation of duties. Organizations gain central, efficient enforcement of security controls.

Making sure only the right people can access private information in today's high risk environments is a critical need if organizations are going to meet their customer and partner expectations. Making sure that administrators can manage data without altering the data, for instance, is a vital requirement for addressing a range of regulations. Layering access control with both strong, multi-factor authentication solutions and hardware security modules (HSMs) ensures only authorized individuals can access regulated information.

Learn about SafeNet Multi-Factor Authentication
Learn about SafeNet HSMs

To be effective, the Compliance Infrastructure must deliver capabilities for centrally, comprehensively, and efficiently tracking the activities relating to regulated data. For example, authentication management platforms should enable organizations to centrally manage authentication devices and policies across an enterprise.

This management platform must also provide a centralized, efficient way to track and report on authentication-related activities. In addition, encryption appliances should maintain an extensive set of log files that can be used to track administrator and user activities.

Learn about SafeNet Authentication Management

Your information security compliance policy must include the definition of assets, entities, and access modes and the relationships between them – in a way that makes sense to both the administrator for setup and management, and lower-level key management components for enforcement. The Compliance Infrastructure makes it easy to apply a policy once and have it implemented—and enforced—across the enterprise.

Learn how to build a better compliance policy

A critical requirement for many compliance mandates and security best practices is centralized, efficient, and secure management of cryptographic keys and policies, across the key management lifecycle and throughout the enterprise. Some challenges include restricting access to the fewest number of administrators, regular key rotation, separation of duties, and more.

Learn about SafeNet Key Management

Securing cryptographic keys provides reliable protection for applications, transactions and information assets. With keys securely stored in hardware, you can ensure both high performance and the highest security available.

With robust hardware security modules, encryption appliances, and key management solutions, organizations can maximize the security of encryption keys and policies, adding a critical line of defense for confidential information. This approach is also the easiest way for organizations to integrate application security in order to achieve regulatory compliance.

Learn about crypto management best practices

Many regulations, including PCI DSS, mandate that sensitive data be adequately protected. Safeguarding regulated data in applications, databases, mainframes, storage systems, laptops, and other areas is a critical requirement for security and compliance. With encryption employed, even if an organization's initial defenses are subverted, organizations can still guard these critical repositories against theft and manipulation. This will not just meet the demands of regulation, but will also protect your business interests.

Organizations can leverage encryption solutions that provide granular control over confidential information. Encryption can give security teams an essential means to not only guard against unauthorized access to sensitive records, but to provide the visibility needed to control and track who has accessed or modified sensitive information.
