Anonos BigPrivacy To Highlight Role of Technology Vendors in Data Privacy Compliance

WASHINGTON, April 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Anonos, the global leader in data risk management, security and privacy, announced today that it is presenting at the International Privacy & Security Forum. The conference being held in Washington D.C. breaks down the silos of privacy and security by bringing together seasoned thought leaders. The company was recently recognized by Gartner as a "Cool Vendor" and has been praised by leading business analysts as the only vendor offering solutions that protect consumer data privacy while allowing appropriate usage of data by companies that rely on AI, machine learning and data analytics.

Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Gary LaFever, will participate in a panel titled Vendors, Their Clients, and the International Privacy Regulatory Landscape at International Privacy & Security Forum at 4:00 p.m. ET on April 4, 2019 in Washington DC.

Mr. LaFever's co-panelists include Ari Ezra Waldman - Professor of Law at the New York Law School, John Bowman - Senior Principal at Promontory, and Debra Farber - Senior Director of Privacy Strategy at BigID. The panel will cover the positive and negative impact that technology vendors can have on the evolving international privacy and security landscape.

"Sophisticated privacy-related issues like data minimization, purpose limitation and functional separation require legal subject matter expertise to develop and deploy technology to enable sourcing, curating, combining and sharing of data in a trusted, predictable and legally compliant manner," said Gary LaFever, Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer. "Traditional security and privacy technologies were not designed to support the granular control of data while in use as now required under laws like the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) and other evolving domestic and international data privacy laws."

Are you facing any of these 4 problems with data?

You need a solution that removes the impediments to achieving speed to insight, lawfully & ethically

Are you unable to get desired business outcomes from your data within critical time frames? 53% of CDOs cannot achieve their desired uses of data. Are you one of them?

Do you have trouble getting access to the third-party data that you need to maximise the value of your data assets? Are third-parties and partners you work with worried about liability, or disruption of their operations?
Inability to
Are you unable to process data due to limitations imposed by internal or external parties? Do they have concerns about your ability to control data use, sharing or combining?
Are you unable to defend the lawfulness of your current data processing activities, or data processing you have done in the past?
Traditional privacy technologies focus on protecting data by putting it in “cages,” “containers,” or limiting use to centralised processing only. This limitation is done without considering the context of what the desired data use will be, including decentralised data sharing and combining. These approaches are based on decades-old, limited-use perspectives on data protection that severely minimise the kinds of data uses that remain available after controls have been applied. On the other hand, many other new data-use technologies focus on delivering desired business outcomes without considering that roadblocks may exist, such as those noted in the four problems above.
Anonos technology allows data to be accessed and processed in line with desired business outcomes (including sharing and combining data) with full awareness of, and the ability to remove, potential roadblocks.
