For many organizations, Regulatory Compliance adds extra burdens on existing staff and fines when audits reveal proper controls and processes are not in place. Audit failures and compliance fines can cost companies millions of dollars, not to mention millions more in damaged reputation and business loss, so it’s no mystery why organizations have to be serious when it comes to establishing and maintaining Regulatory Compliance.
Increased data retention policies mandated by organizational, industry, and regulatory compliance standards is a primary contributor to data growth, but a lack of solutions to effectively clean-up stale and unneeded data has also exacerbated the issue as data is only being accumulated over time; not retired in conjunction with the data’s life cycle. Furthermore, more data means more risk for organizations looking to secure content and resources, as the larger the environment becomes, the harder it is to effectively lock down access and identify high risk data (and activity) within the multiple data repositories being supported.
