NYC area compliance expert cites the risks posed by massive amounts of unstructured data, urges proactive approach to data compliance monitoring—in a new article from Messaging Architects
HOBOKEN, N.J., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and compliance expert, asserts that data compliance monitoring is an essential business activity in a new article. The informative article first identifies an organization's large stores of unstructured data as its most dangerous digital property.
The author then urges readers to proactively address potential privacy law violations with compliance technology. He discusses how compliance monitoring helps to provide proof of regulatory compliance. He concludes by encouraging the use of automation in compliance monitoring processes.
"Highly regulated industries such as healthcare and finance need to know where sensitive data resides and how it is used and shared," stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. "Automated data compliance monitoring gives companies the visibility and control that they need to both ensure compliance and improve security."
Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Why Data Compliance Monitoring is Essential to Manage Risk."
Unstructured Data Poses Significant Risk
"Much of an organization's most dangerous digital property hides in unstructured data. This includes data sprinkled in formats such as emails, instant messages, PDF files, and videos. Experts estimate that unstructured data currently makes up about 80 percent of enterprise data."
Proactively Address Potential Privacy Law Violations
"With compliance technology such as data compliance monitoring, companies can get ahead of potential problems. For instance, using Microsoft 365 compliance tools, the organization can monitor data, including unstructured data, for sharing violations. By catching the problem before data leaves the organization, the company reduces or eliminates legal issues."
Provide Proof of Regulatory Compliance
"Not only does monitoring reduce the potential for legal problems, but many regulations require monitoring as part of the conditions for achieving compliance. Monitoring demonstrates that an organization has proper procedures in place and enforces them. This can also prove helpful in lessening the negative repercussions if an issue does slip through."
Automate Data Compliance Monitoring to Increase Efficiency
"Even if humans could comb through huge caches of data, the time involved and the risk of error would make manual data monitoring all but useless. In the first place, organizations need to find and review data in hundreds of locations and numerous formats."
Compliance Technology Experts
Automated, continuous monitoring looks for regulated data, flagging compliance issues. Customized alerts and automatic reports alert auditors or compliance officers, allowing them to quickly take any necessary action. Compliance consultants help organizations choose and configure the right tools for business and compliance needs.
The compliance experts at Messaging Architects have the compliance technology and expertise needed to help business leaders discover and monitor data throughout the organization. This includes data in all storage locations, both on premises and in the cloud.
