SAS Personal Data Protection can identify, govern, and protect personal data collected from your clients. All organizations that do any sort of business with citizens of the European Union are bound by the various statutes contained in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to protect their customer's personal data. If your company doesn't comply with these regulations, then you could face harsh penalties. Using the Personal Data Protection app can give you a better idea of what stored data may fall under the purview of GDPR.
By providing you with a single interface to access and manage all of your data, the SAS Protection app can help you locate personal information stored on many devices from the convenience of your favorite browser. This dashboard also provides you with automatic risk reports that can warn you about potentially sensitive data you might not be aware of.
Unstructured data can often hide personal information. SAS Personal Data Protection can monitor everything from web logs to social media accounts and alert you about any potential problems. The app supports a wide array of file formats, so you shouldn't have to worry about compatibility issues. Every aspect of the scanning process is customizable.
Administrators can integrate the app with any big data portal they're using to scan data before it gets stored. Since the app provides detailed audit sheets at the click of a button, you'll be able to identify any issues quickly. It even keeps a record of who accesses personal data stored in your company's repositories, so you'll know when someone called up potentially sensitive records.
Legal guidelines require that GDPR software users be able to prove that they've taken steps to secure confidential information. SAS Personal Data Protection's centralized reporting dashboard makes it easy to document your company's processes so you can prove that customer data isn't at risk. When you do have problems, the app gives you all the tools you'll need to ensure anonymity and encrypt customer records.
Protecting specific records or files with the app is as simple as configuring a permissions mask that blocks unauthorized access. It comes with a number of privacy features that go above and beyond what the GDPR requires. Special features like pseudonymization can allow you to retain data for research purposes while still maintaining full compliance with the law. This is important for companies that need to monetize data without violating any EU regulations.
Additional features include the ability to analyze and forecast data usage, so you can prepare for future privacy issues before they happen. Since the protection suite is run from the cloud, users can access their dashboard and all of their audit reports from any secure browser that supports HTTPS. SAS negotiates deployment contracts on a case-by-case basis, so interested parties are encouraged to contact the vendor for a free quote.
The world of online commerce gives organizations of all sizes the freedom to do business on an international scale. SAS Personal Data Protection can ensure your firm stays compliant with all GDPR security requirements regardless of where your company is physically located.
