Io-Tahoe Unveils GDPR Compliance Solution
November 8, 2017
unveiled a new offering to enable customers to quickly and
comprehensively address requirements for the European Union (EU)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Facets of the GDPR
addressed by the new solution include Article 9 (Processing of
Special Categories of Personal Data) and Article 17 (Right to
Erasure/Right to be Forgotten). The latest offering of
Io-Tahoe's machine learning-based solution robustly supports
these requirements with its unique sensitive data discovery and
data cataloging capabilities.
"The burdens the GDPR places on companies are significant," said
Oksana Sokolovsky, CEO, Io-Tahoe. "However, the burden can be
lessened if executives act now to implement the appropriate
strategies to reach compliance. Currently, Io-Tahoe is enabling
clients to discover sensitive data across the enterprise so that
they can begin remediation. Manual approaches to finding such
data are inadequate, dangerous and will leave companies
unacceptably exposed. Automated discovery of these data
relationships across heterogeneous technologies within the
enterprise is critical to documenting, understanding and
managing data and, ultimately, to protecting it."
Irrespective of whether sensitive personal data is stored in
conventional relational database management systems or data lake
platforms, Io-Tahoe's GDPR offering enables companies to
auto-discover the location, movement and flow of sensitive data
throughout their organization.
Compliance with GDPR applies to all companies that conduct
business with EU residents, whether they have a physical
presence in the EU or are located outside Europe, but market to
EU residents. As companies take the necessary steps to govern
and protect their data, the guidance below will help to support
and catalog all personal data in your organization, including
hidden and undocumented data, whether it resides in enterprise
systems or data lakes, on-premises or in the cloud.
