What is SaaS compliance software?

Compliance with regulatory standards is key for any organisation using Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tools such as Slack, Google Drive, and Microsoft Teams. While SaaS providers will usually offer some form of data compliance, it is down to the company using the tool to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. 

SaaS applications often involve the processing and storage of sensitive data, as employees share information with one another, or third parties feed more data into the system. While this is often necessary in order for employees to carry out their roles effectively, data should not be stored for an indefinite period. 

This is where SaaS compliance software comes in. It can help you understand where sensitive data is stored across your SaaS stack, and put steps in place to reduce the amount of data you retain.

What are some common SaaS compliance standards?

Data stored in SaaS applications will still need to meet compliance requirements. Common standards that organisations adhere to include the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which puts a focus on EU citizens’ data protection rights. 

Under GDPR, companies must obtain explicit consent for data processing, set data retention periods, and minimise the amount of data they have on record. They must also ensure every piece of data they hold is accurate, and inform the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) of any data breaches within 72 hours. 

ISO 27001 is also applicable across many industries, with a specific focus on information security management. To reach this quality standard, organisations must implement risk assessments, security policies, access controls, and continuous monitoring. 

Finally, Service Organisation Control 2 - commonly known as SOC 2 - is relevant for companies that offer cloud services or have a focus on technology. SOC 2 offers customers the reassurance that their data will be secure, confidential, and processed with data integrity front of mind.

What compliance regulations should specific industries be paying attention to?

There are different regulations that cover each industry, so your organisation will need to become familiar with the laws they should be abiding by. Here are just a few examples of industry-specific compliance laws:

  1. Healthcare
    Those handling patient data in the United States will need to ensure compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This puts strict guidelines in place to protect Patient Health Information (PHI) and secure data transmission between organisations.
  2. Financial Services
    Within the finance sector, there are various financial compliance regulations to be aware of, such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), which is in place to protect non-public personal information (NPI). It safeguards customer financial data, as well as putting security programs in place. Those companies processing payment cards will also need to remain compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) which keeps customer information secured through encryption and other security measures.
  3. Educational Institutions
    Schools and other educational services within the US must comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which protects student education records, and allows parental access to their files.

Why is compliance in SaaS applications important?

There are many risks associated with non-compliance. After all, they were put in place to protect customer data.

Without clear compliance measures in place, sensitive customer or employee data stored in SaaS apps is vulnerable to unauthorised access by malicious actors or data leaks that could compromise data integrity. However, minimising the amount of data you hold can reduce the impact of a possible data breach or leak.

If you fail to comply with the regulations appropriate to your industry, you could face legal action from authorities, or those affected by any data breaches. This may result in fines, penalties, and reputational damage, as customers may feel they can no longer trust you. Compliance with regulations gives customers and partners the reassurance that their data is protected with you. The disruption caused by legal investigations may also halt operations and negatively affect business productivity.

To prevent any risks from your supply chain, you should conduct due diligence on any third-party vendors you’re using to ensure that any impact on their services won’t affect your organisation.

Benefits of SaaS compliance software for an organisation

SaaS compliance software brings many benefits to your organisation, including enhanced security, streamlined operations, and overall risk mitigation.
