ALTR eBook: Snowflake Data Governance Buying Guide

Data Privacy & Compliance

Immutable records of access and consumption of sensitive data
The regulatory risk around possession of PII, PHI, and PCI data continues to grow with CCPA, GDPR, and other coming legislation that outlines the burden and the consequences of a compromise or exposure of private data. All regulations require that companies be able to report not only on their compliance with statutes (CCPA 1978.115 / GDPR Article 30) but also to individuals who have requested details about their data use (CCPA 1978.100, 1978.300 / GDPR Article 15).

Dynamic masking of sensitive data to support privacy
Most applications, both in their use and in development, contain privacy leaks that expose unauthorized users and developers to private data. This source of risk can place companies in violation of a wide array of statutes from CCPA to HIPAA to the PCI DSS, and the economic consequences of those violations can pile up quickly.

ALTR’s data access governance as a service can mask data dynamically as it is accessed in order to preserve application function while allowing compliance and security experts to configure policies that stop privacy leaks in real time.

Ultra-secure, low-latency tokenized data storage off your network
Companies need sensitive data to serve their customers, but just possessing it immediately creates regulatory requirements that are costly. The evolution of those requirements is unpredictable and ever-changing.

ALTR decreases the compliance burden by tokenizing and removing sensitive data from scope and storing it in a cloud vault. As a PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider, ALTR helps companies with payment data comply with PCI every day, and extends that same strategy to PII and PHI.
