Who Needs Secured Communication?
Email and the Web are the most dominant communications tools in today’s business as more and more businesses continue to use them as part of their workflow processes and mission critical applications. As business continues down this path, the need for security intensifies.
Because much of the information exchanged over the Web is sensitive, a comprehensive security strategy an absolute must for most organizations. A lack of protection for both structured and unstructured data exchanges could result in damage to corporate reputation, loss of customers, penalty and litigation fees for noncompliance, and expensive remediation costs.
Industry groups, government, companies and individuals recognize the threat and are constantly enhancing privacy standards. The risk of exposure is too great to not be overcautious. Individuals can have their identities stolen; corporations can lose money, reputation or customers; or government information can be acquired for malicious purposes. Because it only takes a small security breach to enable any of these catastrophes, it is critical for organizations, especially those companies that are affected by regulatory obligations, to utilize a proven and reliable security platform.
Common regulatory requirements include:
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
- Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
- Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
- Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)
- Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)
