Perfect match: cloud, data protection and compliance

Compliance with data protection requirements and security in the cloud? Sure it's possible, but there are quite a few things to consider!

Compliance - the problem child: How can companies meet all of the requirements?

It's a real minefield: Never before has it been so complex for companies to comply with data protection, legal requirements and internal compliance guidelines for handling business and customer data. What's more, the requirements are constantly changing. Multi-cloud structures make everything even more complex. What's the best way to comply with the many different requirements and rules? And: How do those responsible maintain an overview?

The challenge: You need to know all of the respective laws and guidelines

The issue of access rights, for example, is complex (Access Governance). After all, employees should only be able to access information that they need to complete their work. Often those responsible are not even aware when processes or technical solutions violate applicable laws or internal compliance guidelines. Or do you know ...

  • just how long certain documents must be archived in the company?
  • which data may be stored in a private cloud but not in a public cloud?
  • which information must remain within the jurisdiction of the EU?
  • which IT services are actually in use in the company - keyword "shadow IT"?

Many other IT service providers now use our ESARIS approach to ensure secure and traceable service delivery themselves.

Corporate Governance: Avoid compliance violations

Do you want to bring your IT and applications in line with legal requirements and compliance guidelines? Then you need to deal with the following questions:

  • Which of your data may be transferred to a public cloud which processes and stores your data in data centers worldwide?
  • Which personal data may be transferred to a public cloud, but only within Germany?
  • When is it better to keep data in a private cloud or in on-premise systems?
  • How can a CRM system be used in the public cloud without violating the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
  • How can your data be encrypted in accordance with compliance requirements?
  • How do you ensure only authorized users obtain access to the data – even if the data is located in different cloud systems around the world?

Ensure you play it safe!
