Whether it’s HIPAA, GDPR, or CCPA, the presence of PII or PHI in a data set can render it virtually unusable.
Did you know that there is a 85% probability of identifying a patient in the US healthcare system just by using a combination of date of birth, gender and zip code? That said, when looking for a big data management platform, it goes without saying, you need one with rigorous privacy management for sensitive data.
Here are 5 tips on what your Big Data Management Platform should be capable of:
- Most important is a platform that incorporates privacy by design. Privacy by add-on and bolt-on security measures result in poor governance and privacy management.
- Sensitivity labels (such as PII, PI, secret, etc.) should be assigned to all data and should follow data through transformations.
- It is vital to have advanced de-identification of data and assessment tools to evaluate the risk of re-identification.
- Queries should be governed by built-in Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC), the same approach used by the military. ABAC is the only way to scale the access needs of a diverse community across vast data sets.
- Strong encryption of all data ensures that nobody can end-run the system and gain access to sensitive data sets.
The PHEMI Central data management platform offers military-grade privacy. Plus, with privacy by design, data is protected with a granularity down to a single cell in a grid, all without impacting performance. Making it simple for you to securely and safely unlock the value of your data, regardless of sensitivity. Your data moves from a big investment, into a big asset.
