Existing applications and data flows need to be monitored for constant data protection and compliance visibility. However, new applications can be designed with data privacy coded into their fabric. Soveren’s vision is to provide an API into its service so that applications can determine in real time if personal data processing is appropriate, and control who has access to the data and for how long. This service becomes part of the fundamental data processing infrastructure for the organization.
Applications must also deal with the reality that there are many different and constantly evolving regulations that may impact the personal data records they are processing. Being in partnership with a service that can be relied on to manage the variability of the regulatory landscape and automatically incorporate appropriate actions simplifies development, reduces maintenance, and improves compliance.
Those applications that can easily leverage the data privacy infrastructure can support advanced configurations, such as the need to split personal data from non-personal data and store the personal data on a server in a particular geography, or support a variety of encryption schemes.
Soveren is building the personal data protection infrastructure of the future to make things simpler, safer, and more transparent for both companies and consumers.
