Regulated industries are required to safeguard files for government audits, but compliance standards often present challenges for organizations in sharing, managing and retaining data.
For instance, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires healthcare organizations to prevent alteration and unauthorized access to files containing patient data. Financial firms must also secure and protect files as well as preserve them for anywhere from two to seven years.
