De-Identification Requires a Platform Approach

The scope of data, users and purposes in your enterprise is vast.You need a privacy platform that can meet the requirements for every context; a simple one size fits all using only masking or tokenization or encryption will fall flat. 

That’s why the Privitar Data Privacy Platform™ enables you to select from the full range of de-identification techniques in any combination so you can tune the data resolution and re-identification risk according to each individual analysis, model or use. 


Begin by Understanding Data Context

A successful data privacy program takes full account of data context. Context includes:

  • The dataset required for each analysis or model
  • The different combinations of direct and quasi-identifiers
  • The different access rights and privileges of the employees and third parties who are working with the data
  • Data users’ access to other datasets that could be used in a linkage attack
  • The questions asked and insights sought

This context determines how you will combine de-identification techniques in a Protected Data Domain.™


Full Set of De-Identification Techniques 

Once you understand the data context, you are equipped to select and apply the right de-identification techniques from Privitar’s full roster in any combination to the direct and quasi-identifiers.
