Compliance

Compliant with HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA with Unstructured Data Shield

Unstructured Data Shield makes the enforcement of compliance for unstructured data as easy as it can be. UDS is your path to GDPR, CCPA and HIPAA compliance.

Personal data has tremendous value. If it’s managed properly, it can create significant competitive advantage. On the other hand, no compliant with the GDP, CCPA and HIPAA could be a real threat to the future of any organizations. One year into GDPR, mega fines have been handed down: $230M to British Airway and $110 to Marriott International. 

UDS is designed from ground up to counter those issues and provides an easy path to GDPR and HIPPA compliance.

  1. Compliance tag is permanently associated with the designated data.
  2. Strong encryption satisfies the protection requirement.
  3. Extra layer of access control to stop uncompliant access
  4. Ensures all copies of compliance data are enforced by the same access rules, leaving no back-doors.
  5. Compliance report for data access is handily available.
  6. Minimize damage if data breach does happen. Hackers can’t access content of the protected data even when they do have a copy.
  7. When a customer requests to be removed, UDS ensures data is removed no matter how many copies may exist in the system.

NY DFS Cyber Security Regulations

New York State’s Department of Financial Services (DFS) has put in place a rigorous, first-in-the-nation cyber security regulations for financial institutions and others that do business in the state. The requirements from DFS go beyond what we have historically seen from regulators and apply to all entities operating under or required to operate under DFS license, registration, or charter, or which are otherwise DFS-regulated, as well as, by extension, unregulated third party service providers to regulated entities.

By providing the protection to unstructured data, UDS allows the data governance and classification to cover the entire enterprise data set, both structured and unstructured, and every copy of it, as well as the ability to manage the unstructured data with clear visibility. UDS extends the same protection of structured data to all unstructured data:

  1. Data Protection
  2. Data classification
  3. Data governance and access control
  4. Audit report for data access

Leaving unstructured data unmanaged and unprotected poses a great risk to overall data security. Please contact us today for more information on how UDS ensures complaint
