Privacy X-Ray : World’s First Privacy Enhancing Technology for Risk Assessment & Visualization

Reduce your time to Privacy Risk Assessment, Visualization & Unlocking value from data — 100X

Why do Privacy risk assessment?

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” — Sun Tzu

In the Privacy world, if you know your privacy risks and its appropriate safeguards, you need not fear a hundred data shares. If you are putting in place some privacy safeguards without understanding the privacy risks, there is a high possibility of data subject rights violation or data breach. If you neither know your privacy risks nor necessary safeguards, every data processing is a risk for the organization and its customers.

From a regulatory perspective, Privacy Risk Assessment is a core component of Data Protection Impact Assessment (EU: Article 35 — GDPR, India: Clause 27), which is a mandatory requirement for processing sensitive personal data.

Why manual privacy risk assessment does not work any more?

Traditional safeguard methods like pseudonymization, tokenization and masking are no more sufficient to prevent new age privacy attacks. So just looking if a dataset is encrypted or pseudonymized is not going to be sufficient.

There are different kinds of emerging privacy risks, which are very complex and require specialized privacy algorithms to identify and visualize. Some of the critical privacy attacks that regulations like GDPR wants Data Controllers to be cognizant of are — Singling out (GDPR — Recital 26), Linkage and Inference attacks (EU Article 29 — Working Party). These privacy attack vulnerabilities can not be identified with plain sight.

For example, to understand, what proportion of a dataset is vulnerable to singling out risk is a difficult question to answer with plain sight or traditional tools. DPOs/ CISOs need augmenting privacy algorithms & services to take informed decisions to protect their customer’s data subject rights.

Privacy X-Ray: World’s First Privacy Enhancing Technology for Risk Assessment & Visualization

PrivaSapien’s Privacy X-Ray offers first of its kind, patented, Privacy Enhancing Technology (PET) based risk assessment and visualization platform for data controllers. Privacy X-Ray analyzes different kinds of advanced privacy threat vectors and possible attack on the data, while in use and provides an unified privacy risk score called PXAR score.

The Unified PXAR Score can be the foundation of an organization’s privacy strategy. Based on different categories of PXAR Score, organizations can define their data collaboration, technology safeguard, data retention, cross border transfer and data processing strategies.

PXAR Score and risk categorization can be used for building standardized data sharing and safeguarding agreements between data controlling and data processing companies, setting a strong, reliable and compliant data collaboration ecosystem, which can unlock value for the entire data ecosystem.
