Data Sovereignty

Protecting sensitive data is critical for data sovereignty

Leveraging Data To Improve Performance is a Global Imperative

In today’s global economy, data sources are distributed worldwide, and opportunities for growth and optimization are everywhere. Enterprises often have analytics centers of excellence to maximize efficiencies, collaboration, accuracy and sophistication of models. Maximizing these efficiencies means that these hubs are not colocated with every regional data center. Combining this data can sharpen insights but creates complexity around data sovereignty and the movement of data across borders.

Protecting Sensitive Data is Critical to Data Sovereignty

Data sovereignty regulations that control what personal data can be moved across borders are increasing. “Anonymization”, meaning potential to identify an individual is sufficiently removed to protect their privacy, is critical in many of these regulations. GDPR, the US Privacy Shield, Brazil’s LGPD data protection law and many others mandate this anonymization before data can be transferred and analyzed.

A Complete Data Sovereignty Solution is One That Precisely Manages Privacy Across Borders

There is no “one size fits all” for what levels of de-identification are required during cross-border transfers. An automated and customizable approach to different levels of data privacy will assist enterprises with data sovereignty at a global scale.

  • Anonymize data to remove the ability to identify individuals and allow more flexibility for organizations to send and receive data across borders
  • Achieve data minimization and provision only the data required for each use case
  • Evaluate data anonymously and then re-identify it within safe borders for actionable strategies
  • Track data throughout its lifecycle to ensure it is carefully monitored and used for the correct purpose, by the authorized people, at the appropriate time
