General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR and Data Depersonalization Tools

15 March 2019

Under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), companies are committed to preventing the accidental lossalteration, distribution or unauthorized access of customers’ personal data. Compliance with this regulation is above all a matter of process and organization, and it requires effective data depersonalization tools according to the key stages involved.

Expert System supports your GDPR project team by taking charge of the personal data identification and categorization step that requires advanced skills in semantic technology. We help you prepare for personal data erasure and anonymization by detecting and tagging sensitive data contained in your unstructured content.

Personal data is any information (name, place of residence, phone number, date and place of birth, health ID number, photo, biometrics, DNA, passport number, profession, age, sex, religion, illness, disability, IP address, etc.) that is directly or indirectly related to an identified or identifiable physical personCogito for GDPR employs powerful semantic analysis based on disambiguation algorithms to distinguish individual roles and interactions or relationships between named entities in content.
