Facing an ever increasing complexity of compliance? Our global clients operate in diverse regulated industries and conduct commerce across many jurisdictions.

We provide solutions to enable you to be compliant without complexity. Be Expert, govern your Salesforce data with CS:Govern.

Integrate GRC with Legal Risk Mitigation

Governance, risk and compliance (“GRC”) have always been difficult to implement from complex legal parameters, business rules and technical constraints. CS:Govern enables you to manage data governance in the context of users, field data, metadata and history to protect from the legal and governmental penalties. This includes data used in-app, across geographic jurisdictions, integrated across your enterprise data strategy and while that data is at-rest for archives, backups and disaster recovery.

Govern Data in Salesforce and Archives

Salesforce Shield provides a first line of defense for data governance and use by authorized users. CS:Govern goes beyond by enabling the use of multiple simultaneous regulatory templates applied in-app to production, sandbox and scratch orgs. Data transiting in or out of Salesforce can also be governed to preserve chain-of-custody and user-centric compliance via tamper-evident encrypted compliant archives for retention and disaster recovery purposes.

Apply Best Practices for Data Encryption and Obfuscation

Governance requires user controls and intricate data protection. CS:Govern enables business rules to control field level data handling in Salesforce and for data extracts. Create custom field obfuscation in-app and enable field-level encryption during data exports. The result provides Salesforce Administrators, Data Architects and Legal Teams to establish full-fidelity, high-frequency auditable workflows, processes and business rules that govern data in the context of users, databases, and regulatory standards.

Compliment Legal Strategies with high-fidelity auditability

Legal defense of regulatory compliance requires both data and context. CS:Govern gives your legal team the ability to create high-fidelity data archives that include full metadata to establish chain-of-custody, data utilization, field history and context within the regulated standard. This method enables simultaneous archive repositories that mask proprietary data, complies with retention policies and assures the data is tamper-evident.

Achieve comprehensive data governance throughout the Salesforce data lifecycle: import, export, retain, then retrieve for full compliance.

CS:Govern empowers the management of Salesforce data as it enters Salesforce, is created in Salesforce, and even after leaving Salesforce via tamper-evident regulation-specific repositories. These repositories have the ability to create archives based on region, data type, time and even case-specific, ultimately giving control over your entire GRC footprint.

Apply Multiple Regulatory Standards Simultaneously

Data governance follows the same journey as the consumers, products and supply chains. It moves quickly and changes jurisdictions throughout the complex interactions with consumers as commerce moves globally. CS:Govern provides you with a non-technical solution for creating and applying the precise business rules that control data use, visibility and access regardless of where your data resides, consumers transact and supply chains move. Multifaceted and simultaneous regulatory standard can coexist across the globe and around the clock.

Segment Archives by Regulatory Standards

Consolidate data from two or more Salesforce instances within a single database. Compare metadata from multiple Production Orgs. Use multi-column record matching rules to ensure that no records are duplicated within the new Production instance. Record mapping rules simplify tasks such as transitioning users from one instance to another.

Create Litigation Specific Retention Archives

CapStorm enhances Salesforce Sandbox and Scratch Org capabilities by providing automation to create and populate temporary or persistent development Orgs with both metadata and data. With CapStorm you can automate:
– Creation of Dev Orgs (sandboxes or scratch orgs) based on Prod configurations
Import metadata into Scratch Orgs, making the structure of the Scratch Org mirror test or production environments.
Import test data or obfuscated production data into Scratch Orgs, turning the Org into a useful environment for testing or development.

Segment Governance Rules by Data Classification Standards

Finding and replacing specific data within Salesforce may seem simple, but it is a daunting task when you consider all of the locations in which a single item may be located. Consider an email address: a single address may be found within a contact record, multiple case comments, history tables, email messages, chatter threads, converted lead, etc. If you deal with regulated data, CS:Search can help improve data quality and reduce risks during migrations, merges and splits.

CS:Govern enables your enterprise to comply with global, local and internal compliance requirements.

The list of global regulatory standards seems to grow each day. CapStorm serves clients in 48+ countries. Most of the clients have multiple overlapping government and legal standards that influence how their SFDC data should be governed. We support many of these standards and enable you to define custom standards of your own to apply a single or multiple standards simultaneously. It get’s complex. We make you Expert.
