Compliance with industry and government regulations is more than just a legal imperative. It guarantees that information is auditable and available only to the right people, and that workplaces are safe, secure and operating in line with environmental guidelines.
At Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, solutions and services fully comply with the latest regulations and standards, keeping your data, networks and information secure, and your work practices environmentally friendly.
Security and data protection
Governments and customers demand that companies respect tough security regulations and maintain high privacy standards. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise helps you meet this challenge and mitigate the risk of damage to your clients and business caused by security breaches.
What does security compliance mean for your business?
Our security products comply with stringent data protection standards and regulations designed to protect health and financial privacy. Examples include:
- ISO 27001/ 27002, which specifies requirements for documented information security management systems, as well as those for the implementation of security controls.
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), which regulates corporate governance and financial practice to improve the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures. It requires that publicly traded companies perform comprehensive internal controls on their finances and conduct regular external reviews of their policies.
- Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards, that were instituted to ensure that organizations maintain the highest information security standards. Failure to comply may result in heavy fines or being banned from processing credit card transactions.
- The US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which is a set of standards relating to the protection of confidential health information.
Environmental regulatory compliance
As more countries adopt stringent standards and regulations to protect resources, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is responding with environmental and economically-sound solutions. These comply with:
- The Restriction on Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS), which controls the use of materials such as lead and has caused companies to review the components used in design and manufacturing processes.
- The European Community's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive, which makes collecting and reusing or disposing of waste electrical and electronic equipment the responsibility of manufacturers, not users.
- NEBS Level 3 Certification for non-interference with other electronic devices. This guarantees maximum operability for the equipment and certifies that it is able to perform in harsh environmental conditions without interfering with other electronic devices. NEBS Level 3 certification is vital for networking equipment in mission-critical applications.
- The Restriction on Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS), which controls the use of specific materials such as lead and has caused companies to review the components used in their design and manufacturing processes.
