There are many reasons why data compliance is in effect across companies. Peace of mind needs to be provided to customers that their personal information is safe. Hospitals and other health care facilities need to be in HIPAA compliance due to government regulations. Regardless of why you need to be compliant with data regulations, there are easier ways to make it happen.

Some of the top data compliance regulations include:

-           State Breach Notification Law

-           HIPAA

-           J-SOX

-           NCUA

Regardless of what you have to adhere to, data compliance does not have to be a challenge. The IT infrastructure in place simply needs to be updated for this to occur.

Server Backup has been in the IT industry since 1998 and offers a free data review as well as data stress tests. This allows clients to learn about how to update and maintain an IT infrastructure to be more compliant with the various data regulations.

Some companies need to be more compliant than others. However, health care organizations as well as companies within the finance, legal, and government sectors will be required to follow strict rules. Many companies know that they need to be compliant but have no idea how to do so. They have to look at uptime, email policies, data redundancy and more.

It can be advantageous to use server backup software. This allows you to determine what the rules are with your data and keep them locked on a server where various controls and permissions can be managed. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that the data are under lock and key with various levels of encryption and determine who does and does not have access to the data within your organization.

IT can be a realm that is very confusing. Data compliance is not something that can be ignored as it can result in data breaches as well as heavy penalties for non-compliance. By working with a company that understands the importance of security, privacy and data storage, you can ensure that the IT department is organized in such a way that data is organized and locked away so that it cannot be accessed by people who do not have the authority to view the information.
