Ever more demanding regulations require businesses to make investments in security solutions and practices to protect customer and stakeholder data. Organizations are already subject to federal laws designed to ensure that an individual’s private data is protected, such as the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH). But many regulations, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), affect organizations across a wide range of vertical markets. PCI-DSS was designed to “help organizations ensure the safe handling of cardholder information,” and applies to any organization that processes or stores payment cardholder data. In total, these regulations define a much higher level of security than previously demanded and require the implementation of security solutions that are not considered basic, such as data leakage prevention (DLP), content filtering, and intrusion prevention systems (IPS).
