Data Protection Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments As Code

Go From Hours Of Email To A Single Code-Line Command

You can’t audit with an abacus. And you cant do DPIA’s efficiently without dedicated technology.

Goodbye To Messy Process

Hello To Privacy Made Simple.

The Problem

DPIAs

Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) are now a legal must-have, but they’re a friction-filled challenge for developers, data teams and privacy specialists that rarely actually improve risk mitigation.

The Solution

Automated DPIAs

Build DPIAs into the coding workflow by allowing them to be submitted via command line, to an API or even via Slackbot. Privacy teams configure a risk threshold which Ethyca uses to review and assess escalated risks.

Data Protection Impact Assesment Features

Perform Risk Assessments as Code

Easily create an impact assessment for a new business process as code via CLI or Slackbot.

Define Risk Level Thresholds

Simply, define, and manage risk thresholds based on data sensitivity, processing activities, and business rules.

Automatically Identify High Risks

Ethyca automatically evaluates all requests and flags high risk processes for manual review and subsequent remediation.

Auditable DPIA Log Generation

Ethyca automatically generates risk analysis reports for all processes, providing a comprehensive audit trail for regulators.

Risk & Impact Assesment in Action

A Single Workflow For Risk Assessment & Data Access:

  • Ethyca lets Risk Assessment take place within a CI/CD workflow.
  • When a member of the development team requests data access for processing, Ethyca automates performance of a risk assessment for that request.
  • The result is a regulatory-standard, auditable DPIA log with no need for emails, meetings, or cross-department collaboration.

Code-Based Workflow

  • Without Ethyca, completing a Risk Assessment involves time-consuming, manual coordination between a plethora of team members.
  • Ethyca replaces those miles of emails with a single code-line DPIA command, saving businesses hundreds of compliance-focused hours over the course of a year.
  • Furthermore, Code-based DPIAs eliminate the potential for human error or oversight causing a data privacy error.

Rapid Visibility of High Risk Issues

  • Another benefit of Ethyca’s streamlined DPIA workflow is the speed at which teams can identify and respond to data privacy risks.
  • By automating a cross-analysis of data being processed, nature of processing, consent requirements, & requester clearance level, Ethyca ensures your business can’t commit “unforced errors” with user data.
