News headlines about the increasing frequency of unauthorized access to sensitive data and identity theft have focused awareness on data security and privacy breaches - and their consequences.
In response to this issue, regulations (SOX, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FISMA, EU Data Privacy Directive) along with the rising number of regulatory mandates have increased the pressure to show immediate compliance, otherwise failure to ensure compliance can result in significant financial penalties and even jail time. In addition, organizations also risk losing customer loyalty and damaging brand equity.
This paper examines the complex data security and privacy threat landscape; compliance and regulatory requirements; and, the IBM InfoSphere portfolio of integrated solutions designed to help you stay focused on meeting your organization's business goals, achieving compliance and reducing risk.
