Anonos announced that it is presenting at The European Big Data Value Forum (“EBDV”) in Vienna Austria. Anonos’ certified BigPrivacy technology overcomes the shortcomings of other solutions that were “good enough” before the GDPR, but fail to support new requirements to embed data protection into the data to enable compliant decentralized processing, repurposing, combination and sharing of Big Data.
“It was an honor and a privilege to be asked by the European Commission to present on ‘Technical Solutions for GDPR Compliance’ as part of the European Big Data Value Forum,” said Gary LaFever, Co-Founder & CEO of Anonos. “The GDPR is not intended to stop Big Data processing, but rather, to make Big Data processing safe. Anonos’ BigPrivacy technology is the first platform that achieves GDPR-compliant and safe Big Data processing (Anonos technology was recently certified by EuroPrivacy as satisfying GDPR requirements for Pseudonymisation). Other technology vendors have – for decades – been focused on building “frictionless” systems that rely primarily on external controls in the form of contracts, policies and terms of service (TOS) to protect data. In contrast, Anonos’ BigPrivacy technology was architected from the ground up to anticipate and enforce necessary “friction” in the form of embedded data protection by design and by default controls, which are necessary to satisfy GDPR technical and organizational safeguards for enabling safe Big Data processing. BigPrivacy is architected to enable data to come into and out of systems and processes in a manner that allows collaborative Big Data processing in a safe, privacy-respectful, legal and compliant manner.”
Anonos’ BigPrivacy 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 has been recognized as a Gartner “Cool Vendor” for state-of-the-art privacy management technology.
The European Big Data Value Forum is a key European event for industry professionals, business developers, researchers, and policy makers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the data economy and data-driven innovation in Europe. Keynotes and presentations range from cutting-edge Big Data applications, artificial intelligence, innovative business cases, inspiring future visions, and insights on EU policy-making and research and development and invitation funding.
Anonos Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Gary LaFever, is a panelist presenting on “Technical Solutions for GDPR Compliance” at the European Big Data Value Forum at 11:15 a.m. CET on 13th November at the Austria Centre Vienna.
“The entry into application of the General Data Protection Regulation on 25 May 2018has been a wake-up call for many companies to re-examine their data handling practices. Such examination took place against a growing interest in data processing in light of the promises of ‘Big Data’, data-driven innovation and artificial intelligence (AI). In this session, speakers shall present solutions for ensuring compliance of business processes involving the processing of personal data from a technical perspective. There cannot be a one-tool-solves-it all approach. Different use cases require the processing of personal data in different ways preserving individuals’ privacy. Anonymisation and aggregation of data can lead to useful data for certain purposes but not for others. Sometimes individuals’ consent will be necessary. In many situations, it won’t. Pseudonymisation in combination with specific legal grounds for processing can be sufficient. This session presents technical approaches taken by companies and organisations in order to ensure compliance with data protection legislation.”
