IBM Security:

Get ahead of compliance

Build trust and protect your world

Compliance isn’t just something you have to do to protect your business. It’s something you need to do to protect your customers. The cost of a data breach through non-compliance goes deeper than penalties and fines. It corrodes the very core of your brand, destroying trusted relationships, equity and goodwill. But there’s a silver lining to compliance, because the same actions that secure compliance also strengthen your security posture, your brand and your customer relationships.

Identify compliance risks and requirements

Compliance is more than doing the right things, it’s also looking at the right things. In nearly every case, organizations that have suffered a serious data breach believed they were compliant — until a cyberattack exposed a hole they didn’t see. IBM Security solutions help to spot compliance gaps and vulnerabilities before cybercriminals or external auditing teams find them, providing true compliance assurance.

Automate your processes

Automate security to simplify compliance and reporting

Compliance often takes the form of multiple time-consuming, manual processes. By automating compliance requirements and reporting, organizations can take a more proactive approach to compliance and avoid disrupting important day-to-day tasks. IBM Security solutions are designed to help organizations automate and validate compliance tasks with complete peace of mind.

IBM Guardium safeguards the valuable data subject to compliance requirements. It provides both added visibility and advanced mechanisms to ensure that sensitive data stays private and remains in a compliant state whether at rest or in motion. IBM Guardium helps security and compliance teams:

  • Automate compliance controls across heterogeneous, multivendor networks.
  • Automate the compliance auditing and reporting process, including forensic analysis.
  • Automatically detect database vulnerabilities and configuration issues.
  • Continuously monitor and secure both structured and non-structured data traffic.

Would you bet €20 million on your GDPR compliance?
