Anonos Certified BigPrivacy Technology Transforms Data to Support Legal Big Data Analytics & AI Projects Under the GDPR

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Anonos (, announced today that Anonos GM of the Americas, Adam Towvim, will keynote the Analytics presentation to over 300 Compliance, Data Governance and privacy professionals at the Global GDPR ConfEx.

Anonos' state-of-the-art certified BigPrivacy technology overcomes the shortcomings of other solutions that were "good enough" prior to the GDPR but now fail to support new requirements for enabling Big Data value by embedding data protection into data as required under evolving data protection regulations. BigPrivacy technology uniquely maximizes Big Data value by enabling compliant decentralized processing, repurposing, combination, and sharing of Big Data.

"Global organizations woke up in in the last 12 months and realized that much of their customer data is no longer legal under the GDPR," said Adam Towvim, Anonos General Manager of the Americas. "For many of these organizations, the original broad-based general consent that they used to collect EU personal data no longer provides a valid legal basis to process or even store the data – even in encrypted form. In order to keep the data legal, many of these organizations must now transform their data to a valid legal basis like Legitimate Interest."

Anonos' BigPrivacy, the patented Big Data enablement and data protection technology, was recently highlighted in the IDC report entitled "Anonos' SaveYourData — a EuroPrivacy Certified Solution – 'Deep Freezes' Enterprises' Existing Personal Data Sets as They Plan Analytics Strategies," and recognized as a Gartner "Cool Vendor" for state-of-the-art privacy management technology.

Global GDPR ConfEx focuses on the operational challenges surrounding GDPR, Compliance, Privacy, and Governance. Anonos GM of The Americas, Adam Towvim, is presenting on "Are your analytics & AI projects illegal under the GDPR? at 12:55pm on November 15, 2018 at the Argonaut Hotel, in San Francisco.

The GDPR ConfEx website ( describes the panel as follows:

"Are your analytics & AI projects illegal under the GDPR?

Now that we have gotten past the GDPR effective date, your clients must now demonstrate that they have an alternate (non-consent) lawful basis to process analytics & AI. This provides you the opportunity to assist clients in showing that they have a legitimate interest to:

  • Collect, use and store data as input for processing
  • Process data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Exchange data within their organization
  • Transfer data outside of a country
  • Share data with outside parties."


The GDPR and evolving data protection regulations shift the burden of risk for misuse of personal data from individual data subjects to corporate data controllers and processors. This shift in the burden of risk includes an affirmative obligation to use the state-of-the-art in data protection. This is yet another reason why what was "good enough" before May 25th for Big Data analytics, AI and ML is now illegal under the GDPR and evolving data protection regulations.

BigPrivacy patented dynamic pseudonymisation and de-identification technology uniquely:

  • Enforces fine-grain privacy controls over who has access to and use of personal data to reveal only the data that is necessary at a given time, for a given purpose, for a given user.
  • Leverages GDPR-certified Pseudonymisation capabilities enabling use of Legitimate Interest as a lawful basis for compliant Big Data analytics, AI and ML.
  • Provides state-of-the-art in data protection as required under the GDPR and evolving data protection regulations.

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

to Insight
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?
Lack of
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.
