It involves adhering to laws and policies designed to protect data privacy, integrity, and security.

Why is Data Compliance Important?

🔒 Protects Privacy: Safeguarding individuals’ personal information.
⚠️ Mitigates Risks: Reduces the risk of data breaches and financial penalties.
✅ Builds Trust: Enhances customer and stakeholder confidence in your organisation.
⚖️ Ensures Legal Adherence: Compliance with laws avoids legal repercussions.

Key Data Compliance Regulations

Leverage GAT Labs for flawless Google Workspace management. Enterprises gain more than advanced tools; they receive a gateway to enhance productivity, enforce security, and maintain a consistent operational flow.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Europe

The GDPR sets stringent guidelines for data protection and privacy.

Main Challenge:

Ensuring complete transparency in data handling, implementing robust security measures, and effectively managing data breaches are significant hurdles for organizations.

How GAT Can Help:

GAT+ leads the way to achieving comprehensive GDPR compliance seamlessly:

▪️ Access Control: By default, Super Admins have access to metadata via GAT products. They can assign auditor roles and grant GAT access to Delegated Auditors as required. Administrators have full control over the access scopes and areas for Delegated Auditors through GAT.
▪️ Data Mapping: Maintain a detailed inventory of data collection and storage.
▪️ Incident Management: Rapidly respond to and manage data breaches.
▪️ PIA (Privacy Impact Assessments): Conduct assessments to identify and mitigate risks.
▪️ Policy Management: Develop and enforce data handling policies.
▪️ Risk Management: Identify and address potential vulnerabilities.
▪️ Sensitive Data Identification: We ensure the protection of all stored information by encrypting it both during transit and at rest.
▪️ DPIA (Data Protection Impact Assessments): Ensure ongoing compliance with data protection principles.

How GAT Stands Out in GDPR Compliance:

▪️ Approved Access Workflows: Ensure that only authorised personnel can access sensitive content. We adhere to the ‘Principle of Least Privilege’ and conduct regular access control reviews.
▪️ Data Integrity/Accuracy: GAT enables you to maintain and update your data with bulk modifications using the export/import feature in GAT+.
▪️ Chrome Activity Coverage: Monitor all browser-based activities comprehensively. We enable you to monitor and control access, ensuring only authorised content can be viewed for security reasons.
▪️ File Loss Reporting: Receive detailed reports on file losses via email attachments. Multiple alert rules can be configured in both GAT+ and GAT Shield to prevent data loss.
▪️ Integration with Google Workspace DLP: Seamlessly complements Google Workspace’s data loss prevention.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) - USA

HIPAA establishes national standards for protecting individuals’ medical records.

Main Challenge:

Balancing patient access rights with robust data security and maintaining the confidentiality of sensitive medical information is a major challenge.

How GAT Can Help:

▪️ Data Encryption: Protect health data through robust encryption methods.
▪️ Data Confidentiality: Health information cannot be used for marketing purposes, shared without written permission, or sold.
▪️ Data Availability: HIPAA mandates that patients have the right to inspect and obtain copies of their records. Our tool allows Google admins to fulfil this requirement using the export function easily.
▪️ Access Controls: Implement stringent access controls to ensure only authorised personnel have access.
▪️ Audit Trails: Maintain comprehensive logs of data access and modifications.
▪️ Compliance Audits: Regularly audit systems to ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations.

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) - USA

FINRA enforces rules that protect investors and ensure market integrity, requiring detailed record-keeping and data security.

Main Challenge:

Maintaining a complete audit trail of data access and activity while ensuring the security of sensitive financial information can be complex.

How GAT Can Help:

▪️ Monitoring and Reporting: Continuously monitor data access and usage with scheduled reports and prevent data loss through warning systems in GAT+ and GAT Shield. Monitor all GAT end-user activities in an immutable section of the Admin Log.
▪️ Incident Response: Quickly respond to and manage security incidents.

Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) - Europe

DORA aims to strengthen the IT security of financial entities in the EU.

Main Challenge:

Developing a comprehensive resilience plan, establishing effective incident response protocols, and maintaining continuous monitoring can be demanding for organizations.

How GAT Can Help:

▪️ Resilience Planning: Develop and implement ICT resilience strategies.
▪️ Incident Response: Rapid response and recovery plans for ICT disruptions.
▪️ Monitoring and Reporting: Continuous monitoring of ICT systems and detailed reporting on incidents.

Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) - USA

The ECPA governs the interception and disclosure of electronic communications,

Main Challenge:

Balancing the need for monitoring employee communications to enforce policies and prevent security breaches while maintaining employee privacy is a delicate task. Additionally, ensuring proper authorization for accessing communication content adds complexity.

How GAT Can Help:

▪️ Communication Monitoring: Monitor and protect electronic communications with GAT. Email metadata is logged for auditing, and GAT Unlock allows content access only when two authorised personnel review it for risks or policy violations.
▪️ Data Encryption: Encrypt communications to ensure privacy.
▪️ Access Controls: Restrict access to communications to authorised personnel.
▪️ Incident Management: Quickly address and resolve breaches of communication privacy.

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) - Global

PCI DSS provides a framework for securing credit card transactions and protecting cardholder data.

Main Challenge:

Maintaining a complex web of security controls, including access restrictions, network security, and ongoing monitoring, can be a significant burden for organizations that process card payments.
