Immuta Delivers a Breakthrough in Automated Data Governance: Compliant Data Collaboration

Sponsored by Businesswire

today announced an industry first: No-code, automated governance
features that enable business analysts and data scientists to securely
share and collaborate with data, dashboards, and scripts without fear of
violating data policy and industry regulations. The Immuta platform
ensures compliance with all major data regulations – including the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), The California Consumer
Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA).

According to Gartner, Inc.’s Risk Management Leadership Council’s April
2019 Emerging
Risks Monitor Report
, “Accelerating Privacy Regulation” is the
number one concern among risk, audit, and compliance executives. As
defined by Gartner, “Accelerating Privacy Regulation” is “the risk of
progressively complicated statutory regimes, which cover the use and
protection of customer data, creating the potential for legal and
financial exposure,” e.g. GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA.

The Immuta Automated Data Governance Platform creates trust across
security, legal, compliance and business teams so they can work together
to ensure timely access to critical business data with minimal risks.
Its automated, scalable, no code approach makes it easy for users across
an organization to access the data they need on demand, while protecting
privacy and enforcing regulatory policies on all data.

New compliant collaboration features include:

Automated Policy Inheritance
Historically, data policies
have been managed at the application or system level. When analysts
attempt to integrate data across many disparate systems, it can be
difficult, if not impossible, to re-write these rules into a new,
combined policy. This process is slow, complex, error-prone, and
requires months of calls, emails, and meetings. Immuta’s new Automated
Policy Inheritance feature eliminates the need for human intervention to
manage policies across mashed up data sources. Analysts can
instantaneously and securely create integrated data sources, share
derived data from them and collaborate across the organization – with
confidence that the proper controls are in place.

Re-Identification Requests: On-Demand De-Masking of Sensitive Data
authorization for viewing regulated data – especially when it’s a single
piece of data such as a name, email or phone number – can be confusing
and cumbersome. Most organizations still use slow, poorly documented
processes for sensitive data requests. This creates significant barriers
for time sensitive, ‘need to know’ data access requests.

For example, imagine a situation where a researcher uncovers a medical
misdiagnosis in a set of healthcare data. Knowing how to request and
re-identify that person and their contact information, in a timely
manner, without breaking the privacy of others, could save that person’s
life while maintaining the highest of ethical standards.

To remove the complexity and confusion involved with consent, Immuta has
introduced Format Preserving Encryption and Reversible Masking features
so that users can immediately place a digital request for the data that
they need to be “de-masked,” eliminating chaos and confusion. Digital
requests are instantaneously presented for authorization so that
decisions on sensitive data access can be done quickly and securely –
allowing an immediate, one-time re-identification for the requested
data, or elevating the request for additional scrutiny.

Fingerprints: Capture the Impact of Data Policy Changes on Downstream
Data Users

When a data owner needs to make access and control
policy changes to a data source, there has never been a way to
demonstrate the impact those changes could have on the downstream use of
that data. For example, statistical changes to data used within
analytics or dashboards could have a major impact on the accuracy of a
model or the integrity of business intelligence dashboards.

The new Immuta Fingerprints feature eliminates any uncertainty about how
downstream use could be impacted. It calculates the impact of data
policy changes and provides visualizations to users of the statistical
deviation. Together, with the Immuta Policy Inheritance feature,
downstream users are notified about any changes and are provided details
on how their use of the impacted data will affect them.

Immuta also announced today that its platform is now interoperable with
the Databricks Spark analytics engine, and cloud-based data warehouses
Google Big Query and Snowflake.

for a webinar on Wednesday, May 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET in which Steve Touw,
Immuta co-founder and CTO, will conduct a live demo of the Immuta
Automated Data Governance Platform.

Halim Abbas, Chief AI Officer, Cognoa
Immuta’s new re-identification feature, it is now possible for our data
analysts to identify outliers in anonymized datasets, and start a
well-controlled workflow to mark those specific samples to an authorized
admin for de-anonymized investigation in a way that fully conforms with
health industry data-privacy guidelines.”

Steve Touw, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Immuta
has delivered another industry first: workflow features that allow users
to confidently and securely collaborate with sensitive data across their
organization because they know, through the Immuta platform, that the
rules will be enforced. They also have the freedom to make changes on
the fly without any concern that privacy policies will be infringed
upon. Also, if a policy needs to be changed, we’ve made it easy for the
user to go through the workflow and adapt as needed.”
