Do you need to prove PCI compliance for your Office 365 environment?

Proving Office 365 PCI compliance can be quite a challenge. Could you prove to an auditor that you never share credit card numbers via email or on your SharePoint Online sites, or if you do, that the regulated data is properly protected? If not, your organization could be slapped with huge fines and its reputation could be ruined.

  • Requirement 3: Protect stored cardholder data.
  • Requirement 5: Protect all systems against malware and regularly update anti-virus software or programs.
  • Requirement 6: Develop and maintain secure systems and applications.
  • Requirement 7: Restrict access to cardholder data by business need to know.
  • Requirement 8: Identify and authenticate access to system components.
  • Requirement 10: Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data.
  • Requirement 11: Regularly test security systems and processes.

How can you keep your Office 365 compliant with FERPA?

The U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires educational organizations to strictly control the disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) from student records — including those stored in Office 365. Compliance failures can lead to loss of federal funding, and some states also allow for monetary damages for improper disclosures of PII.

Netwrix Auditor can help you prove that you have the proper controls in place to keep the educational records in your Office 365 secure. Here are the key FERPA requirements that Netwrix Auditor can help you comply with:

Subpart B: What are the rights of inspection and review of education records?

  • § 99.10 (a)
  • § 99.10 (b)
  • § 99.10 (d)(1)
  • § 99.10 (e)
  • § 99.10 (f) 

Subpart C: What are the procedures for amending education records?

  • § 99.20 (a)

Subpart E: May an educational agency or institution disclose personally identifiable information from education records?

  • §99.31 (a)(ii)
  • §99.32 (a)(1)
  • §99.32 (a)(2)

Are you required to achieve GDPR compliance in Office 365?

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires all organizations — no matter where they are based — to protect the personal data of EU residents that they process or store. Fines for violations can be up to 20 million euros or 4% of the organization’s total global turnover of the preceding fiscal year; in fact, organizations have already been slapped with fines of over a million US dollars. 
Netwrix Auditor can help you address the following key provisions of GDPR in your Office 365 environment:

  • Chapter II. Principles
    Article 5. Principles relating to processing of personal data
  • CHAPTER III. Rights of the data subject
    Article 15. Right of access by the data subject
    Article 16. Right to rectification
    Article 17. Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
    Article 20. Right to data portability
  • Chapter IV. Controller and processor
    Article 24. Responsibility of the controller
    Article 25. Data protection by design and by default
    Article 32. Security of processing
    Article 33. Notification of a personal data breach to the supervisory authority.
    Article 34. Communication of a personal data breach to the data subject
