Protect Data and Meet Compliance Requirements
Financial institutions face immense pressure to protect the data they create and collect. These organizations must be ever vigilant to the possibility of a data breach caused either by malicious actors or through employee mistakes. In either case, a data breach carries with it severe consequences, from heavy fines to the loss of consumer trust and market share. Protection and proper management of payment card information (PCI), personally identifiable information (PII) and intellectual property (IP) requires that it be clearly identified so that employees can make intelligent, deliberate decisions on how the information is handled and protected.
With support for automated, guided, and user-driven classification, Fortra’s Data Classification Suite (DCS) enables financial organizations to accurately identify information assets according to business value and sensitivity. Once identified, any user of the information will have the guidance necessary to become an integral part of your data protection strategy and help ensure compliance with regulations and standards such as PCI-DSS, SOX, FINRA, GLBA, and ISO 27001 and 27002.
DCS provides users with targeted, interactive security education and policy enforcement when handling email and documents – without disrupting business workflow. Our policy engine leverages the content, context, and classification of the document, as well as user attributes, to ensure the right people are accessing the right information and are sharing it according to corporate policy. This includes the enforcement of ethical barriers between business units within the same organization.
Optimize Your Data Security Ecosystem with DCS
DCS enable users to identify and classify email and documents. The intuitive and easy to understand user interface is integrated into familiar office applications, including Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office, and Windows Explorer. Data classification is the foundation of data security, and DCS can be leveraged by your entire data governance ecosystem to protect sensitive information within and beyond your borders. Internally, classification can be employed to map document retention policies so that archiving software can make informed and consistent decisions about retention and deletion. Since classification metadata provides explicit information about the file’s sensitivity, DLP solutions are able to more effectively prevent unauthorized data sharing via email, USB, or other network endpoints. And for persistent protection of data anywhere, classifications can automatically trigger the appropriate encryption or Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS) templates.
