Imagine a world where you don’t have to compromise.
Organisations are now required to implement new technology controls to bring global data transfers and cloud processing into compliance with Schrems II. Our patented technology acts as a technically-enforced Supplementary Measure for data transfers using SCCs, enabling Lawful Borderless Data.

With Anonos, state-of-the-art GDPR-Pseudonymisation technology allows you to protect data in use, comply with regulatory requirements, achieve unparalleled data portability, utility, and accuracy, and establish a defensible position for your organisation.
Words Are Not Enough
Although “words are the lawyer’s tools of the trade”, trying to address Schrems II requirements using words alone will always fail, regardless of whether the words come in the form of revised contracts, new treaties, policies, or digital terms of use.

Organisations focused on updating Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) miss the point that words alone cannot make data transfers lawful under Schrems II. It is critical to understand that new technical controls are required in addition to updating SCCs.

Anonos provides new technology that enables Lawful Borderless Data in compliance with Schrems II and global data protection laws.

Top Misconceptions
There are many misconceptions about the impact of Schrems II, the penalties and exposure for non-compliance, and what organisations must do to move forward. Anonos provides Pseudonymisation-enabled Supplementary Measures to empower organisations to continue processing data in compliance with Schrems II and global data sovereignty and localisation laws.
WHICH PROCESSING CAN I NO LONGER DO?
Two use cases, which represent the majority or global data use and processing, are now unlawful:
  • Transfer to Cloud Services Providers or Other Processors Which Require Access to Data in the Clear (EDPB Unlawful Use Case 6); and
  • Remote Access to Data for Business Purposes (EDPB Unlawful Use Case 7)
THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD FOR COMPLIANCE
No. There is no grace period for complying with Schrems II – the obligation to comply was immediate upon the ruling of the CJEU on 16 July 2020.
WORDS ALONE ARE NOT ENOUGH
SCCs “are not capable of binding the authorities of that third country, since they are not party to the contract.” No political solution to Schrems II will remove the obligation to implement new GDPR-compliant technical controls to reduce the risk of violating data subjects' fundamental rights for international data transfers to be lawful.
This is a Board level issue
Yes. Due to the significant publicity regarding the potential negative effects of Schrems II, lack of corporate change may constitute “wilful blindness to a course of action” or “reckless conduct by knowing of the risk but doing nothing.” This opens Board members and senior executives to potential personal and criminal liability. In addition, auditors have an obligation to report data protection violations to authorities under the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA), and Non-compliance with Laws and Regulations (NOCLAR).
NEW TECHNOLOGY IS REQUIRED
The EDPB has highlighted the transfer of GDPR Pseudonymised data (EDPB Lawful Use Case 2) as lawful. This means that Cloud Processing and Remote Access for Business Purposes (EDPB Unlawful Use Cases 6 and 7) can be made lawful by using GDPR-Pseudonymised data (Lawful Use Case 2).
Anonos BigPrivacy
GDPR-Pseudonymisation Software
BigPrivacy uses GDPR-Pseudonymisation, a technique recommended by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) for protecting data in use.

BigPrivacy transforms identifying source data into privacy-respectful data assets known as Variant Twins®, using state-of-the-art technical controls. BigPrivacy gives a privacy engineer the tools to create "Privacy Actions" via a graphical user interface (GUI). These Privacy Actions can be adapted for different contexts, uses, and risks.

When data is properly Pseudonymised using BigPrivacy, data is protected during transferring and processing in compliance with Schrems II. This allows you to support SCCs for global data use and cloud processing with recommended technical measures.

We offer a QuickStart program to help get your business covered as soon as possible.
