In the face of growing data privacy regulations, appetites are growing for solutions that guard protected private information with the same gravitas given to protecting privilege. The challenge? Current privacy regulations are, on the one hand, broad and complex, and on the other, vague and underdefined. This makes implementing systems for preventing the inadvertent disclosure of protected private information an important task.
Jurisdictions around the globe have introduced legislation to serve many similar, but sometimes very different purposes. These range from preserving an individual’s most basic right to privacy and the protection of their personally identifiable information (PII), such as with GDPR and CPRA, as well as their private health information (PHI), as with HIPAA. Some legislation is enacted to safeguard minors, while other legislation protects people in their role as consumers. Overlapping with this is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
