Dataguise Joins International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) as GDPR Deadline Approaches

Company Brings Enterprise-Class Technology Solution for Automating GDPR Compliance to Largest Community of Information Privacy Professionals

IAPP Silver Member logoFREMONT, CA — March 27, 2018 —Dataguise, a leader in data-centric audit and protection (DCAP), today announced it has joined the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the largest and most comprehensive community of information privacy professionals. The IAPP is a not-for-profit organization that helps define, support and improve the privacy profession globally. Dataguise will initiate its membership at the association’s annual Global Privacy Summit from March 27-28, where end-to-end solutions to address the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be presented.

Regulatory compliance continues to pose a major challenge to data privacy professionals concerned with a broad range of requirements, particularly the GDPR, which takes effect May 25, 2018 as mandated by the European Union (EU). The GDPR is the most demanding and extensive data privacy regulation to date, established to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU. Organizations in North America and around the world with business operations in the EU understand they must adhere to the mandate in order to conduct business in the region or risk losing access to the European market and paying hefty fines.

“Joining and actively participating in the IAPP could not be more timely, as many organizations are seeking effective sensitive data governance strategies that will help them meet these new compliance requirements for the protection of personal data,” said Manmeet Singh, CEO, Dataguise. “European sales can typically account for 20-30 percent of incoming revenues for North American enterprises. U.S. and other global companies who want to do business with European entities or customers must adhere to GDPR privacy regulations or suffer the costly consequences. Our DCAP solution will play a critical role for organizations around the world who are determined to maintain the highest levels of GDPR compliance.”

Dataguise DgSecure provides the most comprehensive technology solution to address GDPR compliance in a delivery model that is simple to deploy and easy to manage. An all-in-one software platform for the discovery, classification, encryption, masking, and monitoring of sensitive and personal data, DgSecure by Dataguise supports the broadest range of data types and repositories, on premises and in the cloud. It empowers organizations to meet the GDPR right of access and right to erasure requirements, offers powerful encryption and masking capabilities to preserve the business value of data, and accelerates breach detection to meet the 72-hour notice requirement.

“Surmounting compliance requirements can be a daunting challenge, but there are strategies that organizations can implement and steps that can be taken to simplify and automate the process,” noted Singh. “We look forward to connecting with IAPP members and working together to address their compliance challenges, unique and shared, in a seamless manner that ensures they meet the required GDPR standards.”
