The Answer: Data Compliance

Data compliance for the cloud refers to ensuring that data going to the cloud is protected in a way that meets all relevant standards and regulations – whether set by industry or geographic area. Depending on the industry, there are often specific regulations for how an enterprise should handle personal information and other sensitive data. Some key U.S. data regulations include: Retail – PCI DSS, Healthcare – HIPAA & HITECH, Financial – GLBA, Government – FISMA & FedRamp and others. In addition, many countries have their own cloud data regulations and laws and these also differ depending on the country. For example it's generally said that the European Union safeguards personal information more proactively than the United States.

To meet data compliance regulations and standards, an enterprise should become familiar with and learn how to utilize data-centric security tools that work in and outside of their firewall. Encryption and tokenization are useful for meeting strict or complex data regulations and supporting the enterprise in meeting its cloud data compliance needs.
