RockSecure has witnessed increased regulation of business process-oriented laws including the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002, Database Protection Act (SB 1386) of 2001, the Gramm Leach Bliley (GLB) Act of 1999, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996/2003.
Each of these laws imposes strict requirements on enterprises to establish or identify, document, test and monitor "internal control" processes. Most, if not all, of these processes are supported by increasingly sophisticated information technologies. Being unprepared can cost enterprises more than money - under Sarbanes-Oxley, jail time is possible for non-compliant executives.
SOX, GLB, HIPAA and SB 1386 all have data privacy and protection in common. Each has varying requirements but all share the following common enterprise mandates:

Security Policies: Well-defined policies for data privacy and protection discourage the government from imposing their own standards-the least desirable of all situations.
Security Processes: Demonstrating policy in action with people using technology in a predictable manner to protect data from attackers.
Robust Audit Trail: The foundation of evolved process, where regulators require evidence of what happened to justify why events need not be reported.
Preventative Measures: Encryption, digital signing and real-time detection of attacks all serve to pre-empt attacks on data.
