Data Privacy

Identify and action Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and other sensitive content to comply with data privacy regulations (GDPR, CCPA, NYDFS).

The rise and prominence of data privacy regulation worldwide has catapulted the use of AutoClassification to locate, identify, analyze, and action content across data silos and geographic boundaries.  Organizaitons are scrambling to coordinate and control sensitive information in the enterprise.

Proper Information Governance, let alone the penalties typically associated with violating the regulations, demand that we not only know what content we have (and where), but that we defensibly manage access to it, with proper data privacy controls in place for Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), Payment/Credit Card Information (PCI) and sensitive, need-to-know corporate information.

You can’t protect sensitive data if you don’t know what you have or where it is.

GDPR & Privacy Compliance

  • Enforcing corporate document retention schedules
