Managing Data Regulation and Privacy Compliance

Today, democratization of data science across the enterprise means that companies are using more data in more ways than ever before, but it also presents new challenges - namely that businesses’ IT organizations are often not able to scale to meet the demands of increased access.

With the heightening challenge given the influx of new data regulations being drafted, not to mention upkeep of processes that ensure continued compliance with existing legislation, things start getting complex quickly in terms of governance.

But compliance cannot exist on the technical level alone; true compliance and respect for data regulations is a mindset that must be embedded throughout the organization. Besides mitigating legal risk, collaboration across all the teams that engage with or benefit from users’ data is critical for larger success.

Since most developers and analysts are not lawyers, the majority of teams involved in data usage will not have the expertise needed to understand whether a particular action is compliant or not. Through education, restrictive admin rights, and broken-down silos, teams can distribute expertise and still uphold compliance.

Understanding the Key Questions for Data Compliance

Data compliance is all about asking questions and building time into project lifecycles to get the answers. While the nature of legislation suggests a lack of room for interpretation, understanding key facts about data before it’s used is critical to ensuring compliance.

  • Document each dataset’s purpose, consent, and retention policies
  • Maintain Project- and dataset-level security (user rights, available connections, etc) and automatically restrict model creation within a project where the dataset contains personal data
  • Generate reports with all datasets and models that contain or use personal data
  • Create specific, access-controlled environments in which authorized users can work on anonymized data
  • Handle right-to-erasure requests with ease
