Data compliance means the data is subject to the laws and governance of the country where it is stored. With the rise of global data flows and cross-border data transfers, ensuring data compliance has become a crucial concern for governments and organizations worldwide which accelerates the implementation of data privacy and residency regulations, such as the Cybersecurity Law in China and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
To ensure data privacy and compliance with local data regulations, a compliant cloud plays a vital role by keeping data within national boundaries, under the jurisdiction of the local legal frameworks, thereby safeguarding data integrity and enabling digital innovation. By prioritizing data residency, complying with local regulations and offering enhanced security measures, it provides a controlled environment for storing, processing, managing, and protecting sensitive data and business-critical applications.
Cloud providers that prioritize data residency and local compliance implement stringent security measures to protect enterprise data against unauthorized access, cyber threats, data breaches, accidental loss or damage, as well as ensure compliance with data regulation laws and requirements. To ensure compliance with data privacy laws and maintain the security of sensitive and restricted data, it is crucial to restrict unauthorized access while allowing flexibility in authorized communications.
Based on a zero-trust approach, strong user authentication is required to access data in the cloud. CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrueCONNECT™ SASE Secure Access Service Edge solution incorporates real-time analysis for traffic control in applications and SaaS, equipped with Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) capabilities to manage and monitor various accesses and cloud services. Integrating SASE solutions can further enhance data security and compliance in cloud environments.
Regulatory requirements and data residency laws imposed by respective governments are met by businesses using cloud infrastructure that complies with local legal frameworks. By hosting data within national boundaries, these platforms fulfill local obligations and ensure compliance with data protection and privacy laws, hence reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties. Moreover, regular audits, compliance reports, and documentation are facilitated by cloud providers to showcase compliance with local regulations. Through these measures, businesses can verify that their data is being handled in alignment with the applicable laws, ensuring transparency and accountability significantly faster and more efficiently.
A trusted cloud provider offers robust backup, disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities, ensuring organizations can mitigate the impact of disruptive events and maintain uninterrupted operations. With data replication, automated backup & restore and disaster recovery planning, critical information and systems are protected and can be quickly recovered to minimize disruption, reducing the risk of data loss.
