GDPR Data Governance

Ensure compliance for data analytics platforms

GDPR Was the Tipping Point

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) fundamentally changed attitudes and approaches to privacy management. The regulation defines principles, rights for individuals and obligations of data processors. Non-compliance risks fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global revenues, whichever is greater.

 

GDPR Is Evolving – So Should You

When GDPR became effective in 2018, most compliance initiatives began by addressing the elements of data collection and processing most likely to draw attention, such as consent. As the environment has evolved, leading organizations are now adopting comprehensive data governance programs to address underlying risk. This holistic approach can ensure you are GDPR compliant in the short term and future-proof organizations as regulations evolve.

Accountability

Organizations must be able to demonstrate compliance with GDPR. Privitar records the Privacy Policy and the associated privacy preserving transformations you have applied to each dataset. Plus, In order to comply with GDPR, Privitar allows Controllers to embed metadata and a watermark in the dataset to enforce business policies on data distribution and enable traceability.
