What began with GDPR and HIPPA, is now an expanding wave of Regulatory Compliance expectations that will be challenging for Salesforce users.  It is no longer enough for administrators to only dictate Compliance standards within the Salesforce environment.  They must now also ensure that these standards are applied to all integrated and lower environments.  CS:Govern was created to solve this exact problem.  To maintain the most stringent interpretation of Regulatory rules, CS:Govern focuses on all four tenets within regulatory audit guidelines:

  1. Data Security – “secure” is now the minimal standard, compliance is a much higher and more detailed standard
  2. Data Minimization – this is conceptually opposed to Salesforce as a primary operational platform or system of record
  3. Consumer Rights-to-Know –  Salesforce cultivates data as a corporate asset aligned within use cases that optimize processes. Little consideration is given to develop consumer-centric data models that consider consumer rights to knowledge of what data businesses have and transparently share that with consumers
  4. User Access – data security best practices focus on data as a whole, as well as large containers of mass records. However, regulatory obligations now revolve around individuals

Furthermore, CS:Govern provides the functionality to enhance and control all of your Salesforce Data Governance needs. Data Definitions and access can now be easily controlled by the business units with little to no intervention from Application Developers, DBAs, or BAs.  Designated business users are now able to to control each of the primary Governance functions that are required by Government Regulations or Internal Use Restrictions.
