Code Driven: How to Build Trust Into Data & Tech Stacks

Yesterday evening, our CEO Cillian Kieran, gave a talk at FirstMark’s Code Driven event, located in the AWS Loft in Soho, New York. Alongside him was the CEO of FireHydrant, Robert Ross and the CTO of Better, Erik Bernhardsson.

Cillian gave an overview of what data privacy means. Additionally, Cillian discussed how to paring the requirements of data privacy compliance if you’re in engineering, data, or product teams.

Also, we’ve attached Cillian’s presentation, entitled, “How to Build Trust in Data and Tech Stacks.”

Trust in Data & Technology

We’re incredibly excited to share Ethyca with the world! 

Over a year ago, we quietly started working on an engineering problem that is painful for developer teams everywhere. At the same time, it’s vital for the safety of every user of the internet and data-powered businesses.

Everyone is talking about data privacy, breaches, system safety/integrity, and regulation. Businesses articulate this as fear of fines with the knee jerk reactions to search for a quick ‘bandaid’ – all while trying to avoid several risks. 

A Better Way

As developers, the friction introduced in CI/CD and the additional human overhead needed to manage data privacy is Sisyphean without any tangible improvement in the end user’s data safety. 

As people who work in technology, we found it disappointing. Our talented industry, particularly those companies that have seen ‘hockey stick’ growth curves on their user bases and untold financial gains, are not taking their users’ needs more directly to the heart.

We believe there has to be a better way. One that minimizes friction for developer and product teams while maximizing the privacy controls in place around user data. We also believe the solution to better user privacy is not just regulations but code. 

Our Mission

To increase trust in the internet and data-driven businesses. We strive to benefit developer teams and end-users equally.

Our team of engineers, product designers, and data privacy specialists have worked to disassemble and interpret privacy regulations in Europe (GDPR), California (CCPA), and Brazil (LGPD). Additionally, we’ve tackled many draft privacy regulations that are in review globally. 

What We Do

We create infrastructure and elegant abstractions that manage privacy requirements as code that easily integrates with your existing tech stack.

We’re excited to invite our first Beta Developer teams and Pilot Customers to trial two versions of our infrastructure and eager to get your collective feedback. We’re confident we already have the most comprehensive technology solution to data privacy. We’ll continue to iterate and improve rapidly in the coming months and years.

With Ethyca, you can trust in data.
