Anonos Functional Separation, Blog and Video Highlights From Data Governance and Privacy Track at FIMA Europe: Europe's Leading Financial Data Management Event

LONDON, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Anonos (, announced today a timely blog and six-minute video highlighting the critical need for "Functional Separation" to enable ongoing data innovation and value creation in compliance with GDPR and evolving data protection laws.

"Functional separation enables creation of standardised data assets that can be sourced, curated, combined and shared in a trusted, predictable and legally compliant manner," said Gary LaFever, Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer.

The ability to standardise and scale data asset utilisation transforms data cost centres into revenue centres by extending the value of data – both internally within, and externally outside, an organisation – to support a whole new ecosystem of value by enabling:

  • Aggregation of data across jurisdictions and between different legal entities.
  • Analytics to be processed on protected decentralised data.
  • Cloud-based processing of Big Data Analytics, AI & ML.
  • Legal repurposing, combining and sharing of data.

The blog and video summarise important observations from the Governance and Privacy track at FIMA Europe 2018: Europe's leading financial data management event with nearly 600 delegates from investment banks, asset management firms and central, retail and challenger banks.

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?
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.
