Data Protection: Sharing Data Responsibly
I’m very excited to share a new infographic we just produced on privacy and data protection. It’s no surprise
that organizations around the world are struggling with how to reduce the risk of a data breach. According to a recent IBM study, 60% of breaches coming from insiders. And part of that may be attributable to the fact that, according to a recent Harvard study, 70% of employees have access to data that they shouldn’t.
It’s a privacy and security obligation that organizations protect their sensitive data. Yet at the same time, it’s a competitive imperative that information is put in the hands of customers and decision-makers.
How do organizations manage the sharing and protection of information? That’s the subject of this infographic. Moreover, we present five components to help organizations share data responsibly.
- Mask Direct Identifiers with Dynamic Privacy Controls: Real-time access to identified or masked data based on policy-driven user authentication.
- Apply Risk-Based De-Identification with Persistent Access Controls: Build de-identified datasets where the risk of re-identification is calculated and data is transformed to meet risk threshold.
- Enforce Zones of Trust to Control Data Proliferation: Ensure sensitive data doesn’t leak to uncontrolled environments such as portable devices.
- Generate Detailed Compliance Reports to Track Sensitive Assets: Document de-identification process and inventory data proliferation including right to be forgotten and personal information retention.
- Maintain Fine-Grained Audit Logs to Identify Unauthorized Access: Log user activity and access to sensitive data, alerting anomalous patterns.
