Audit Guard: a monitoring service for sensitive data

Audit Guard brings transparency to handling sensitive data

There is often a lack of transparency in dealing with sensitive data: who did what, when and where? However, this transparency is just as important for proving compliance as it is for data theft. Companies therefore need a tool to log any access to sensitive data and alert them to breaches.

Monitoring for compliance and security

For regulatory and legal reasons, companies need to know how sensitive and special categories of personal data are processed. Audit Guard can log all access by employees and systems. This gives companies transparency and allows them to document processing and storage. As well as a prerequisite to verifying adherence to compliance requirements and legal or regulatory provisions, the log can also be used to show whether and which sensitive information is affected in the event of a data leak.

Your benefits

  • Transparency through traceable access to sensitive data
  • Fulfilment of compliance requirements by providing the required evidence
  • Monitoring data protection through a warning system for security breaches

When is it the right solution?

Despite heterogeneous, complex infrastructures, companies need transparency when it comes to processing of sensitive data. Legal requirements, regulations and compliance demands mean that IT managers must be able to prove that personal customer information, health data and other personal details have always been handled correctly.

To meet these requirements, you to need to monitor and log any access to sensitive data. This helps you regain control and transparency whilst meeting your compliance requirements. Monitoring also makes it easier to provide data protection evidence during security audits, which improves data protection.
