Data Privacy Firm Anonos to Emphasize Data Stewardship at International Privacy Event

Pseudonymisation Expert Gary LaFever Keynotes GDPR Implementation Panel at Bitkom Privacy Conference

BERLIN, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Anonos, industry pioneer in data privacy compliance and enablement, announced today that the company will be presenting at the 5th annual Bitkom Privacy Conference. Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer Gary LaFever will Keynote a panel entitled "How Can Pseudonymisation Enable Compliant Data Sharing Initiatives," where he will discuss how modern pseudonymisation technology enables compliant data sharing under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The event will take place today at 15:30 CEST.

LaFever will speak to the challenges of integrating data minimization, purpose limitation, and functional separation protocols within corporate data security objectives, as well as the increasing extent to which broader, industrywide privacy-related practices require legal and regulatory guidance.

The Bitkom Privacy Conference, which attracts hundreds of data protection professionals from around the globe each year, offers technologists, policymakers, and legal specialists the opportunity to examine best practices in global cybersecurity compliance and review the potential impacts of new legislation such as the EU's upcoming e-Privacy Regulation directive.

"Whether its ensuring markets are effectively prepared to deal with cyberattacks or ensuring supervisory authorities can interpret and control the new data privacy requirements in practice, practitioners in the field are still working to ensure that the sourcing, curation, combination, and sharing of data can be conducted in a legally compliant and societally beneficial manner," said Gary LaFever, Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer. "Exploring the role of pseudonymisation in balancing secure data processing with effective data maximization at this year's Bitkom Privacy Conference serves as a critical next step for ensuring effective GDPR adherence for data holders across the globe.

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?

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.
