Compliance and enforcement with regulatory requirements
1. Engineer compliance with regulatory requirements
Government regulators are implementing laws to protect the privacy and integrity of data related to citizens. Examples of legislation include GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act, going into effect in 2020. Such laws will safeguard the data of private citizens by holding accountable organizations who willfully violate consumer privacy by selling or distributing customer data without permission, or who expose consumer information through negligent security practices. In GDPR this requirement is called “Privacy by Design” where data systems must be engineered to secure data from exposure or leakage by default.
As a centralized conduit for orchestrating secure and governed access to the multitude of data sources within the enterprise, intelligent data virtualization is the perfect vehicle for implementing Privacy by Design. Working with virtualized data eliminates the need to create extracts, greatly reducing the chance data will be mishandled.
Intelligent data virtualization also covers a variety of data protection scenarios, including data encryption at rest and in flight, further ensuring Privacy by Design.
