For our latest team intro, we met up with Suchi Natarajan
, our Jr Web Developer! Suchi describes her integral role in building Ethyca’s web presence, and her superpowers don’t stop there. Catch our chat with the multitalented Suchi
In civilian words, how would you describe your job?
I work on providing technical and design solutions to the marketing team here at Ethyca! I primarily develop the brand website, but I also assist in configuring marketing tools, organizing campaign systems, and maintaining Ethyca’s Knowledge Base.
What are you working on right now that you’re most excited about?
I’m excited to be working on some cultural initiatives that I hope will bring our team closer and let the world know how great it is to work here!
In addition to making our website function and look great, we also know that you have the most amazing pet at home (hi Quincy!) and you’re an avid gamer. But what is your superpower that we might not know about yet?
I’m somewhat of the event organizer of my friends. I’m always coordinating nights out (or in nowadays!), and I have a curated list of over 200 bars and restaurants throughout the city to go to at any moment’s notice.
Oh, I love that! That means you have a good grasp of cool spots and good food all over the place, right? I can’t wait to see when we will be able to enjoy any of it, freely, again.
My only worry is that many of the places on the list may not have survived the pandemic!
Fingers crossed for all businesses making it happen these days, truly! On that note, what lessons, if any, have you learned during the pandemic?
Twitter is probably harder to quit than caffeine – not that I’ve succeeded at either.
Now, we’re about a year deep in the Zoom world. Who would you like to have a 30-minute meeting with? It could be with anyone in the world.
Oh, that’s a hard one! I’d probably choose Angela Davis. I think her perspective would be both valuable and somewhat comforting, given the times we live in.
Since you’ve mentioned Angela Davis, what’s a cause you care about?
I care a lot about access to healthcare and righting unjust systems in general. I donate monthly to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU to help defend those rights!
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
