SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Privacy intelligence software provider Integris Software Inc. is coming out of stealth mode by unveiling its new privacy intelligence solution today at IAPP’s Global Privacy Summit in Washington, D.C. This new software gives organizations the ability to meet the most rigid of compliance and global regulatory mandates with the ability to visualize where all personal information is located across the enterprise, prove adherence to regulatory standards, and empower strategic decision making.
“Emerging data privacy regulations, like General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy, carry severe financial and reputational risks. They’ve raised the stakes for multinational organizations to ensure that their systems are maintaining compliance,” said Kristina Bergman, CEO and Founder at Integris. “Our software is designed to take the complexity out of understanding how your data practices impact your ability to comply with regulations and contractual obligations. With our PI Dashboard, privacy professionals are empowered with the information they need to drive strategic decision-making across their businesses.”
Imminent regulatory mandates like the GDPR, which comes into effect May 25, 2018 aim to harmonize all current data protection regulations in the EU, yet they have dire reputational and financial risks for organizations that are out of compliance.
“Current technology stacks are consistently found to be deficient at dealing with mandates handed down by GDPR,” said Uma Raghavan, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder at Integris. “Without the ability to automatically identify and tag where personal data exists across disparate systems, apply policies to it, and assess risk throughout the data lifecycle, businesses are left in the dark without a clear path to remediation.”
At the Summit, Bergman will host a panel session on Thursday, April 20, from 8:00-9:00 AM called “Making GDPR Work for You—Putting the Theory into Practice.” The panel will feature a Q&A segment with Marcus Morissette, Global Privacy Officer at eBay; Andy Blair, Privacy Officer at Universal Music Group; and Phil Lee, Partner (Privacy, Security & Information) at Fieldfisher. The session will touch on topics including: how privacy leaders are partnering with business and technology leaders to drive compliance, the technical challenges of complying, and what it means to be in a defensible position by May 2018.
At the Global Privacy Summit, Integris will be located at Booth 53.
