Data Privacy Assessment & Modeling Tool
The protection of data of US residents is regulated by laws enacted on both the national and state level. Several U.S. states have recently introduced and passed legislation to expand data breach notification rules and to mirror some of the protections provided by Europe’s newly enacted General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Like their European counterparts, these state laws are intended to provide consumers with greater transparency and control over their personal data.
All 50 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, have enacted privacy and breach notification laws that require businesses to disclose what personal information is collected and also notify consumers if their personal data is compromised. These new and amended state data breach laws expand the definition of personal information and specifically mandate that certain information security requirements are implemented.
Our Privacy assessment tool is an ideal way to find the current state of your privacy regulation compliance, analyze your business policies, processes and technology, and identify areas in need of improvement
Using the Privacy by Design framework, organizations must embed privacy into the design and operation of IT systems, networked infrastructure, and business practices. Compliance with data protection and privacy regulations is a challenging task for companies with complex IT landscapes. It requires considerable manual effort to keep permissions and retention of data in line with data protection and privacy requirements. Our Privacy Modeling tool can be used to:
- Design privacy into products and services
- Find laws applicable to using personal information and data
- Guide users through complex privacy laws
