We share a common belief that building technology grounded in respect for users is one of the greatest problems the internet faces. And we believe the solution to that problem is code, not regulation.
When we started Ethyca in 2018, we had a simple but challenging mission:
Increase people’s trust in data-driven business.
Today we announce two important milestones on that journey: the launch of Ethyca Pro and the news of our $13.5m Series A funding round.
Ethyca Pro is the first completely self-service privacy solution, automating Data Mapping, DSR management and Consent for CCPA in California, GDPR in Europe, and future regulations like LGPD in Brazil. It’s a low-friction solution that integrates seamlessly with any enterprise data stack to perform all key privacy compliance tasks without any manual effort needed. You can try it completely free here.
We share a common belief that building technology grounded in respect for users is one of the greatest problems the internet faces.
And we believe the solution to that problem is code, not regulation. So we’ve been building developer tools that make it easy for teams to quickly deploy safe systems with built-in respect for user rights.
It’s staggering to consider that in just a few decades, software has gone from fringe research and academic technology to powering the economy and society in general – software engineering is now civil engineering. If you’re involved in the delivery of software, you’re engaged in building critical social infrastructure. Your work can affect the lives of millions – that’s an awe-inspiring responsibility and one that should be wielded with great care before you merge to master and deploy. Ethyca gives you the tools you need to tackle the challenge of responsible privacy management.
This is just the beginning of our journey; in the coming months we’ll make the privacy developer tools we’ve been working on quietly for two years available to the public. They fit directly into existing developer workflows as CLI and Git integrations. They enable engineers to ship product at speed, while ensuring that privacy-by-design remains at the center of their technology.
To the team at Ethyca —
Thank you. I couldn’t be more grateful or inspired by the work we’re doing together. The problems we’ve all signed up to solve will continue to be challenging, but with your talent in engineering, product, and design, we’re in a position to pursue radical approaches to the problems of privacy that – quite literally – no one has ever solved.
To the wider privacy and engineering community —
We’re building developer tools and infrastructure that let engineers add frictionless data privacy to their tech stack. If you’re driven to solve meaningful problems at speed, I’d love to share more about our plans with you personally and chat about joining our team.
We enjoyed two great days of security and privacy talks at this year’s Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security, aka SOUPS Conference! Presenters from all over the world spoke both in-person and virtually on the latest findings in privacy and security research.
At Ethyca, we believe that software engineers are becoming major privacy stakeholders, but do they feel the same way? To answer this question, we went out and asked 337 software engineers what they think about the state of contemporary privacy… and how they would improve it.
The UK’s new Data Reform Bill is set to ease data privacy compliance burdens on businesses to enable convenience and spark innovation in the country. We explain why convenience should not be the end result of a country’s privacy legislation.
Our team at Ethyca attended the PEPR 2022 Conference in Santa Monica live and virtually between June 23rd and 24th. We compiled three main takeaways after listening to so many great presentations about the current state of privacy engineering, and how the field will change in the future.
For privacy engineers to build privacy directly into the codebase, they need agreed-upon definitions for translating policy into code. Ethyca CEO Cillian unveils an open source system to standardize definitions for personal data living in the tech stack.
Masking data is an essential part of modern privacy engineering. We highlight a handful of masking strategies made possible with the Fides open-source platform, and we explain the difference between key terms: pseudonymization and anonymization.
Our team of data privacy devotees would love to show you how Ethyca helps engineers deploy CCPA, GDPR, and LGPD privacy compliance deep into business systems. Let’s chat!Book a Demo
