Compliance and Data Privacy Challenges

Achieve Compliance
without Compromise


Meeting regulatory compliance requirements can be costly, complex, and ever-changing. And your compliance needs to go beyond regulations with internal governance standards and data privacy requirements. Companies are faced with the challenge of achieving compliance while pursuing today’s IT objectives—combating targeted threats, managing distributed environments, enabling worker mobility, and supporting new IT initiatives, such as cloud computing and the consumerization of IT. Trying to track and secure private data seems daunting—but it CAN be done.


Whether you’re a global retailer or a regional healthcare provider, it’s critical to deploy the right mix of security to fit your organization’s unique IT environment and compliance requirements. There is no one-size-fits-all compliance solution.

With that in mind, there are still many common challenges to address. At the most basic level, your data privacy and compliance strategy should be supported by a full range of compliance controls, including:

  • Real-time risk management
  • Network security overwatch
  • Automated intrusion/incident response
  • Multilayered data loss prevention (DLP)
  • Endpoint-to-cloud encryption
  • Device control for removable media
  • End-to-end malware and spam protection

Healthcare and HITECH Act Compliance: Do You Have Safe Harbor?

Healthcare organizations are under growing pressure to improve efficiency and cut costs, while at the same time, new and existing regulations require increased security for Protected Health Information (PHI). The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has begun imposing stiff penalties, in line with the new tiers called for under the HITECH Act Enforcement Rule, and State Attorneys General have started to flex their rights to legal action against organizations that do not comply with its data breach provisions.

The good news: Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption is an easy-to-use-and-deploy solution that protects sensitive data on hard drives, desktops, laptops, and removable media to comply with the HITECH Act and associated regulations. With Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption healthcare organizations can:
