The latest news and announcements about Ethyca, our products, and our ecosystem, as well as voices from across our community.
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.
Ethyca launched its privacy engineering meetup, P.x, where Fides Slack Community members met and interacted with the Fides developer team. Two of our Senior Software Engineers, Dawn and Steve, gave presentations and demos on the importance of data minimization, and how Fides can make data minimization easier for teams. Here, we’ll recap the three main points of discussion.
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.
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.
The American Data Privacy and Protection Act is gaining attention as one of the most promising federal privacy bills in recent history. We highlight some of the key provisions with an emphasis on their relationship to privacy engineering.
We’re applying open-source devtools to the most high-profile privacy cases in recent years. This time, we build a solution to a landmark case in biometric privacy and purpose specification.
Connecticut has just enacted its consumer privacy law. We look at the unique provisions of the legislation and how Privacy-as-Code can help teams future-proof their privacy ops more generally.
To get started in privacy engineering, these three objectives can help you identify the first steps in embedding privacy and respect into your organization’s tech stack.
In recognition of Women’s History Month, Ethyca recently hosted the Women in Privacy Career Panel, featuring a group of accomplished privacy leaders. It was inspiring and informative to hear these women share insights they’ve gained over their careers. From the panel discussion and Q&A, we identify three common threads from the panelists when it comes to building a career in privacy tech.
In this article, we’ll use open-source privacy engineering tools to code a policy that prohibits applications from sharing data with third-parties. This was the data governance issue at stake in a 2019 ruling by the FTC against Facebook that resulted in a hefty fine.
