THE PRIVACY STACK

News, insights and privacy related stories
 

Hello from Privitar.

Data privacy has become a top priority, board level conversation. Organisations are looking to implement enterprise strategies that protect confidential or sensitive data, without impeding innovation projects. At Privitar, we believe privacy engineering and the use of technological controls can play a key role in making this process more reliable and efficient.

We're also beginning to see the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) tsunami build on the horizon. This piece of legislation will exert European regulatory powers across the globe. The Act aims to drive a universal, data driven culture with an emphasis on better understanding, organising and protecting confidential information assets. Recent record fines issued by European data protection authorities (as we saw with Facebook and WhatsApp) recently, are perhaps a hint of what's to come. However, in the new year, fines will be orders of magnitude more severe.

Privitar is working with leading organisations who are investing to get ahead of the mandates and realise the enormous untapped potential in information assets. These firms recognise how effectively managing private or confidential data opens so many opportunities for innovation.

Through the adoption of novel privacy engineering techniques, our customers are ensuring the safe flow of sensitive data into modern business intelligence applications. This enables efficient R&D with sensitive data, significantly reduces operational risk, and ensures regulatory compliance.

In this round up, we've included some thought provoking insights from the Privitar team and a curated selection of interesting articles. Please don't hesitate to contact us with feedback, or to hear more about how privacy engineering can add value to your data-driven business.

Kind regards,

Jason 
CEO, Privitar
