Data Watermarking

Data Watermarking:

The act of embedding a pattern into a privacy-safe data set which is hard to detect or remove. It makes it possible to trace published data back to its source (e.g. in case of a data breach). It also acts as an additional deterrent to sharing data outside its intended use. Watermarking is a feature of Privitar Publisher.

Privitar Publisher is able to insert a watermark into datasets which can be read from the dataset at a later time. Controllers can use this to insert different watermarks when giving data to different individuals or groups.
