Products for Privacy Engineering

Ensure privacy is intrinsic to your data projects

Privitar products allow organisations to analyse datasets containing sensitive information (e.g. customer data, employee records, banking transactions, trade data) while preserving privacy or confidentiality. This opens up data for safe advanced analytics, data science and sharing, while ensuring consistent and accountable protection of private information.

Privitar offers three ways to protect sensitive data:

Privitar SecureLink

Privitar SecureLink

Privitar SecureLink is a secure data linking system that can be used by groups of organisations to overcome trust barriers and combat data siloing. It allows a central organisation to join data from many contributing organisations such that the data cannot be attributed to a specific contributor and the central organisation cannot recover identifiers.

Essential to modern data architectures

Like security, privacy protection should be designed into data systems at every level, not bolted on as an afterthought. Privitar products add foundational privacy to your data processing architecture at every stage: ingest, data preparation, analytics, statistical modelling and reporting.

  • Integrate with and execute within your environments and scale to big data, so there is no need to take data out of its secure environment
  • Bring consistency, auditability and accountability to the protection of sensitive data, through the use of centrally managed Privacy Policies
  • Integrate with metadata stores both to identify sensitive data and to record how risks have been mitigated
  • Record full data lineage of anonymised and shared data


Privacy matters: One solution, on the privacy side at least, is to separate the identity of the person being measured by a sensor from the data they generate. John Taysom, a fellow of the University of Cambridge and co-founder of privacy company Privitar, believes this “disassociation” is key because companies and governments get the data without a risk to privacy.

It is essential that we develop practical ways of protecting privacy, otherwise we may not be able to sustain growth in the internet based economy.

Privacy is a game changer; it will be to organizations in 2016 what websites were to companies in 2000. So this is the year to up the ante on your investments: you need the right cross-functional team, good governance practices, and the technical tools to ensure that all of your systems are in compliance with both laws and internal privacy guidelines. Making the right investments will let your firm drive business growth, win new customers, and build deeper customer relationships.
