How Can We Help?

Theta Lake's Compliance Solutions

Since organizations must protect the confidentiality and integrity of private information of New York residents, implementing oversight to understand how such information is shared, shown, or spoken is essential. Theta Lake facilitates compliance with the NY SHIELD Act by enabling the identification of private information like Social Security Numbers, birthdates, credit card numbers, email addresses, and National ID numbers in what was shown, shared or said during a collaboration interaction. Following identification, potential disclosures of private information are surfaced in the review queue allowing compliance and risk teams to investigate and remediate issues.

Theta Lake’s Safety COVER feature provides comprehensive reporting and management of enterprise collaboration security settings. Organizations can ensure that collaboration settings to prevent Zoombombing and unauthorized access like passwords, waiting rooms, and encryption are enabled, and remain active, across all deployments.

Additionally, Theta Lake’s platform can redact private information in video, audio, and text to ensure that it does not proliferate during subsequent review and oversight processes. Theta Lake adds a layer of security and control to existing communication processes to enable compliance with NY SHEILD Law mandates.
