Differences between today’s data privacy regulatory landscape as well as current legislation pose a major challenge for enterprises. Software solutions help, but additional manual procedures related to data privacy compliance can still be expensive and time-consuming for businesses. A Report from Data Grill It is estimated that manually managing a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) can cost up to, 200,000 per million records.

Wednesday, Cybersecurity Company Imparbha Based on this, a tool was announced Sonar Platform Technology, Aims to help enterprises better navigate privacy compliance. Called Imperva Data Privacy, the release streamlines the process of identifying where personal data is stored in the environment and who is accessing it, minimizing the manual processes required to maintain continuous compliance.

“Discovery, finding out how and where data occurs is traditionally done through spreadsheets and interviews with data custodians or data owners,” David Valvoskin, senior director of privacy at Imperva, told VentureBet. “It’s very manual. And it’s wrong because it depends on human memory. What it does is automate that process.”

Imperva Data Privacy works with any on-premise, cloud, hybrid, or multi-cloud environment, and existing customers can operate this device on a sonar platform. It automatically adjusts for any new or extended rules.

Changing the landscape

Under the current mandate, consumers have the right to know which company has what data they have, the right to correct errors, the right to port personal data, and the right to forget.

There is a GDPR, or general data protection regulation, in Europe. Overall, more 107 countries Along the way there is more potential data and privacy laws in many US states.

“Organizations are anxious to figure out how to do this because the law has been passed, they are changing, and the definition of personally identifiable information is also changing,” says Volovisin. “Initially, of course, it was a Social Security number, but now it has been expanded to include tracking religion, political affiliation, and IP address.”

As the mandate for data compliance grows, so does the need for improved security solutions. 2020 was “probably the most active year of memory” for Cybernetics Details From cybersecurity company CrowdStrike, which also found that malicious actors are increasing their data amount in attacks against enterprises. Data security expert Acronis announced that “2021 will be the year of forced donations.” Already, Imperva researchers have discovered that data leakage attacks are on the rise 74% Since the beginning of 2021.

Of the respondents, about half said their top interest is their own Personal information is being revealed And compromised by cybercrime in data breaches.

“This is going to be a growing problem for all organizations looking at data,” says Volovisin. “I think we’re seeing a global trend here in acknowledging that consumers have a right to their data and need to know how the data is being used.”
