The term “compliance,” as it relates to our industry and yours, refers to governmental rules and regulations describing the legalities of how data is managed, and the need for organizations to be in compliance with those regulations. These regulations apply to data storage, data archiving, data encryption, and data retrieval. The issue of Compliance within organizations and businesses is now a major concern, due in large part to increases in regulatory requirements. The expansion of these requirements necessitates that many businesses must address Compliance issues by investing in new technologies.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which applies to all public corporations; SEC regulations requiring the retention of all electronic correspondence with clients; Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for corporations in the healthcare industry, are only four of the regulations affecting Compliance.
