Data Security Compliance

Data security compliance refers to compliance with regulations that govern the processing of sensitive data, such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (often shortened to GDPR). These regulations specify what data organizations can collect from users, how that information must be stored, how long it may be stored, and so on. Organizations that do not adhere to these regulations may be penalized, so many opt for enterprise security software with reporting features that make proving compliance easier.
