Achieving Data Compliance in the Age of Data Privacy Regulations through DSPM

Data privacy is at the forefront of conversations around data security in recent years. The implementation of strict privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States, has put increased pressure on organizations to protect their customers' sensitive data effectively. In response to this increased emphasis on data privacy, organizations must ensure their data management practices achieve and demonstrate regulatory compliance. One essential element of tackling this challenge involves the systematic adoption of Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) strategies. 

In this blog, we will discuss how Dasera's advanced DSPM platform can help businesses incorporate a proactive and innovative approach to their data compliance efforts, ensuring data is protected and secure in the era of data privacy regulations.

Data Discovery and Classification for Compliance

An essential aspect of data compliance is having a clear, comprehensive understanding of where your sensitive data resides. Data discovery and classification are the foundations for building a robust and compliant data security strategy.

Dasera's automated DSPM platform simplifies the process of discovering and classifying sensitive data across your organization. By leveraging advanced technologies such as machine learning and natural language processing, Dasera's platform can accurately identify various categories of sensitive data, such as personal information or financial data, which are subject to strict data privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA. This comprehensive understanding of your data landscape allows your organization to focus its efforts on effectively securing the critical assets that might trigger non-compliance penalties if breached.

Data Access and Usage Control for Regulatory Compliance


Once an organization has a complete understanding of its sensitive data landscape, it must focus on controlling access and usage of that data. Data privacy regulations emphasize the need for organizations to establish and maintain strict access control measures to prevent unauthorized access and data breaches.

Dasera's DSPM platform enables organizations to monitor data access and usage effectively. By continuously tracking user interactions with sensitive data, Dasera provides insights into potential security risks, suspicious behaviors, and policy violations. This information enables organizations to refine and enforce stringent access control policies and preventative measures, ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data, which is a key component of maintaining data privacy regulation compliance.

Streamlined Data Retention and Deletion Policies


A successful DSPM strategy goes beyond just protecting data and preventing unauthorized access. It also addresses the management of data throughout its lifecycle, ensuring that data retention and deletion policies align with data privacy regulations.

Dasera's platform streamlines the process of creating, implementing, and enforcing data retention and deletion policies, helping organizations comply with the "right to be forgotten" provisions in GDPR and other data privacy laws. By automating the management of data life cycles, Dasera ensures that organizations do not retain sensitive data longer than necessary, reducing the risk of non-compliance instances or penalties.

Ongoing Compliance Auditing and Reporting

Effective DSPM involves continuous monitoring and assessment of an organization's data security and compliance posture. Regular auditing and reporting are vital to gauge the effectiveness of implemented security controls and maintain compliance across the organization.

Dasera simplifies compliance auditing and reporting by providing comprehensive and real-time information on security controls, data usage patterns, and compliance risks. The platform's advanced analytics capabilities enable security teams to assess the effectiveness of their compliance measures and make informed decisions to address potential gaps. With automated reports and detailed insights, organizations can demonstrate their compliance efforts to regulators, reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties and building trust with customers and partners.

In today's world of rigorous data privacy regulations, it's paramount for organizations to adopt a robust Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) strategy. Dasera's advanced DSPM platform not only streamlines compliance efforts but also ensures optimal data protection. With its capabilities in data discovery, classification, access control, and lifecycle management, Dasera empowers businesses to navigate the intricate terrain of data privacy with confidence.
