Top five action items from the Pseudonymisation Webinar
Under Schrems II, You cannot enable lawful processing by updating SCCs alone.
You must implement technical supplementary measures that make processing “surveillance proof” under US and other third-country laws.
The EDPB and the EDPS recommend Pseudonymisation as the most promising technical supplementary measure for Schrems II compliance.
With Pseudonymisation software, you can lawfully engage in:
  • Cloud-based processing
  • Advanced computation, analytics and AI
  • Multi-territory talent analytics
The majority of the audience was unaware that Schrems II compliant technical supplementary measures existed. While enabling compliance, Anonos Data Embassy Pseudonymisation software delivers 100% accuracy (compared to processing unprotected cleartext) and 16x improved productivity.
