FileCloud for Compliance

FileCloud’s Compliance Center organizes FileCloud’s security and sharing features into one streamlined interface. System administrators can follow FileCloud’s built-in best practices suggestions for ITAR, GDPR, HIPAA, NIST 800-171, and the Saudi Arabian PDPL, to apply the necessary security and sharing settings.

Simple Reports and Audits

Users can export settings for each compliance policy, along with a report on violations so teams can focus quickly on any issues to be addressed. Event logs can be saved for archival and governance purposes or shared with managers, CTOs, CIOs, and external parties for easy audits and reporting.

Save Time and Money

The Compliance Center makes navigating the complex standards easy. It lets you gather information at a glance, explore requirements (and how FileCloud can help you meet them), and toggle configuration settings with just a few clicks, saving you time, money, and effort.

FileCloud’s Compliance Center Helps Make Sense of Requirements

The Compliance Center is a powerful tool for compliance and IT managers. This interface clarifies and connects complex ITAR, HIPAA, GDPR, NIST 800-171, and PDPL (Saudi) requirements. It provides actionable policies and maps them to settings within FileCloud, allowing managers to check whether compliance regulations are met and fix any issues in minutes.

Admins can explore the different configurations in greater detail by clicking the tab related to the relevant regulation within the Compliance Center dashboard. Compliance requirements are listed in a table, along with FileCloud settings that address each requirement. The “Status” column confirms compliance or lists the number of violations. The “Actions” column connects users with information and editing options.

Admins control which rules in the configuration to activate. If you already have a solution in place for a requirement outside your FileCloud environment, that’s no problem – simply bypass that rule in the “Actions” column.

ITAR Compliance Requirements

ITAR (United States International Traffic in Arms Regulation) compliance regulations provide guidelines on securing confidential information for companies involved in the manufacture, sale, or distribution of defense-related articles.

HIPAA Compliance Requirements

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is a federal law that requires certain standards and regulations to be met to prevent sensitive health information from being released without patient consent. Healthcare providers, plans, and clearinghouses, as well as business associates are required to meet these regulations to protect sensitive health information. ePHI (electronic protected health information) is subject to HIPAA protections, which is where FileCloud comes into play.

GDPR Compliance Requirements

The European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the most stringent privacy law in the world. Its regulatory requirements affect everyone who processes personal data or offers goods or services to EU residents, regardless of whether they reside in the EU. All data collected must be secured, and there are strict rules for consent, data processing, and consumer requests for data.

NIST 800-171 Requirements

NIST 800-171 is a comprehensive set of guidelines established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States. It regulates the use of controlled unclassified information (CUI). This is information that, although unclassified, is often highly sensitive. Compliance is mandatory for all organizations handling CUI while doing work for the federal government.

NIST 800-171 is complex, and encompasses numerous aspects of information security, including access control, training, accountability, configuration, authentication, incident response, and more. FileCloud’s Compliance Center simplifies compliance by providing configurations relevant to specific NIST 800-171 requirements and automating compliance.

PDPL (Saudi Arabia) Requirements

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia enacted the PDPL in 2023, and this legislation rivals the GDPR in terms of stringency and penalties for non-compliance. It encompasses all entities that process personal data about individuals residing in Saudi Arabia, including companies operating outside the country.

Strict criteria are outlined by the PDPL for processing personal data. Organizations are bound by the principles of collection limitation, purpose limitation, data security, accountability, and retention limitation. FileCloud’s Compliance Center has a PDPL tab that enables administrators to remove the manual work involved in PDPL compliance.

Powerful Features for Secure Compliance

FileCloud incorporates sophisticated security and sharing features like custom metadata, Smart Classification, and DLP capabilities.

For example, metadata tags can be created for defense articles and technical data, which are then applied to documents using Smart Classification. DLP rules connected with the Classification Engine ensures that no files with this metadata can be publicly shared.

FileCloud’s Compliance Center also connects admins with SSL, encryption, and audit settings to provide multi-tiered security protections. Informational rules like “Confirm all users are US residents” provide useful prompts for system admins to confirm regulatory requirements are met.

Regulatory processes are a critical aspect for both private and public sector organizations. FileCloud is responding to this emerging technical landscape by developing integrated and streamlined tools to support IT admins and compliance managers.
