Data Governance & GDPR

Ensure GDPR compliance and improve data governance with Privitar

Data Governance and Data Privacy

The Privitar Data Privacy Platform™ supports regulatory compliance and data governance while enabling you to collect and manage sensitive data to gain valuable insights. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has fundamentally changed the attitudes and approaches organizations must take regarding data privacy and data governance. The GDPR, which defines the principles, rights for individuals and obligations of data processors, poses new non-compliance risks for companies worldwide. Non-compliance risks include fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global revenues, whichever is greater.
 

Comprehensive Data Governance Programs

When the GDPR went into effect, most compliance initiatives began by addressing the elements of data collection and processing that were most likely to draw attention, such as consent. Since then 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 against evolving regulations.

Compliance Without Utility Is a Losing Proposition

Privitar supports GDPR data governance while helping organizations move beyond regulatory compliance. The The Privitar Data Privacy Platform™ enables enterprises to unlock the value trapped in sensitive personal information. Privitar enables you to collect and manage sensitive data so that you can use it to gain valuable insights that support data driven decisions and propel your business.

GDPR Accountability

Organizations must be able to demonstrate compliance with GDPR. Privitar is able to record Privacy Policies and the associated de-identification techniques you have applied to each dataset. Privitar also allows Controllers to embed metadata and watermarks to any dataset, allowing you to enforce business policies on data distribution and enable traceability.

Data Minimization

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), organizations must not process more data than necessary for a specific purpose. Using Privitar Privacy Policies and Protected Data Domains,™ Data Controllers can provision just the data required for each use case.

Right To Be Forgotten

Rights for data subjects under GDPR include the right to be forgotten. Privitar enables organizations to sever the link between an individual and their data, which can be used to meet this requirement while allowing the data to be retained for analytics.

GDPR Obligations for Data Controllers

Data Protection by Design and by Default

Imposes a requirement to integrate data protection concerns into every aspect of data processing activities. Data Controllers are obliged to implement “appropriate technical and organizational measures,” including data masking techniques such as pseudonymization.

Security of Processing

Again mandates pseudonymization.

Safeguards for Research

Privitar enables organizations to deploy the full range of de-identification techniques to meet the anonymization, data minimization and pseudonymization requirements.
