Challenges of Audit and Compliance Management

Organizations need to manage the risk related to information leakage and ensure regulatory compliance regarding supervision and reporting of email communications.

To ensure compliance, organizations often need the help of external legal experts, auditors, and enforcement agencies to review potential policy violations and decide the course of action.

Cost-effective long-term data protection with new-age tools for ediscovery, extraction, sharing and collaboration are the foundation of a productive legal, and compliance risk management setup.

It’s not easy, however.

Growing Regulatory demands and Cybersecurity threats

The continually evolving regulatory landscape, stringent data protection/privacy laws, and growing cyberattacks targeting critical information challenges already burdened IT teams.

IT Teams are expected to preserve data securely and respond rapidly and accurately to legal and compliance queries while managing the need for greater security and enhanced productivity.

Scattered information makes ediscovery and compliance auditing difficult.

Other methods of preserving email data often fragment the information and make it highly challenging to find information easily, accurately, and quickly.

Early case management for compliance violations can create a privacy risk.

Once an internal auditor finds a potential breach/violation, traditional methods of sharing this information with external auditors, law enforcement agencies, or other members of the compliance teams can create a threat to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of the data.

Expand All | Collapse All
  • 1. During an investigation, how do I quickly search and extract my archived email data on Vaultastic?
     

    Vaultastic offers role-based access to your archived data. 

    Depending on your use case, you can enable self-service individual vault access, department-level access, or complete auditor-level access for selected users to de-burden IT teams and boost productivity. 

    The user or auditor can log in to the Vaultastic App and run deep ediscovery queries, and export selected data in portable formats for further processing.

    The Vaultastic app is a cloud web application accessed anywhere using a browser.

  • 2. Can I provide secured, selective access to mail vaults on Vaultastic to an external auditor in an audit scenario?
     

    Absolutely and it's a recommended practice to optimize productivity. 

    Once you receive a data access request, you can enable auditor access and allow secure, read-only access to selected vaults

    You can also control whether the auditor can export the data, print it, or forward those emails. Once the audit is complete, you can disable access. 

  • 3. When a user is under investigation, the vault has to be on legal hold, and no deletion or retention policies should apply to this vault. Does Vaultastic support a legal hold?
     

    Yes, you can mark a vault as a legal hold in Vaultastic. A vault under legal hold will be exempt from applying retention policies and any actions to delete the vault. Learn more.

  • 4. The auditors want email data of specific users of a particular period in the PST format. Can Vaulastic do this?
     

    Absolutely and very quickly too. Vaultastic's deep discovery tools will enable quick location of the email data of the specific users and the period. You can then export the data in PST format.

  • 5. My data size is enormous and is continually growing. How does Vaultastic preserve such large volumes of data without a proportional increase in cost?
     

    Vaultastic integrates Legacyflo, the scalable migration tool, which can very easily import this data into respective vaults. Considering the size, we may recommend using the AWS snowball to physically move this data into the cloud to speed up the import.

    For such extensive data and as it grows further, Vaultastic can deploy storage tiering to segregate recent, frequently used emails in the Active (hot) store and aging infrequently used emails into the Open (cold) Store.

    Vaultastic's storage tiering can optimize costs of long-term retention of high volume data by up to 60%.
