Regulations and compliance

Due to global connectivity and the use of cloud services, to store sensitive data and personal information, both inherent and residual risks are increasing. With the rise of cybercrimes and data breaches, organizations must be protected from all types of theft and damage and defend themselves from data breach campaigns. Sophisticated cybercriminals combined with the widespread poor configuration of cloud services mean the organization is increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks and data breaches.

The Coro platform helps businesses protect their data and stay compliant with many of today's privacy and security regulations. We've put together some information to help you understand the regulations relevant to your business, and how Coro helps exactly.
