NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 01, 2020
BigID, the leader in identity-aware data discovery and intelligence, and WireWheel, a pioneer in privacy orchestration and program management of privacy programs for large enterprises and service providers, today announced an expanded partnership and set of integrations to deliver next-generation Privacy Assessments (Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs), High Risk Assessments (HRAs), Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs), Privacy by Design frameworks, and Records of Processing (RoPAs) for multinationals.
Traditional Privacy Assessments have relied on interviews and surveys to build personal data inventories, which are then used for PIAs, DPIAs, RoPAs, and more. However, reliance on data recollections, as opposed to actual records, lacks accuracy, detail, identity-orientation, and change awareness. Moreover, traditional tools for building and managing both DPIAs and RoPAs lacked management features to accommodate complex organizations with multiple departments, divisions, and geographies.
This expanded partnership between BigID and WireWheel leverages BigID’s privacy-oriented data discovery and WireWheel’s industry-leading privacy platform and Privacy Assessments, RoPA, and Privacy by Design solutions to deliver data-powered privacy insights for GDPR and CCPA.
Now, once you have automatically discovered and classified your data on BigID, those insights automatically populate and drive your Privacy Assessments, RoPAs, and Privacy by Design exercises. Privacy Assessments are more accurate, evergreen, and easier to capture and manage.
These new integrations build upon industry-leading integrations between BigID and WireWheel for Data Subject Request automation (DSAR). Through the BigID partnership, customers can find, discover, and identify their personal data on BigID, and fully orchestrate the verification, collection, deletion, review, and delivery of data across dozens to hundreds of systems on WireWheel.
“As privacy shifts from nice to have to need to have, organizations increasingly want choice in how they meet compliance challenges,” explained BigID CEO Dimitri Sirota. “They want flexibility, scale, and customizability. The integration between BigID and WireWheel simplifies the implementation of two best-of-breed solutions to deliver customers new best-of-suite options.”
“We are excited about our extended partnership with BigID because it provides our customers with easy-to-implement and comprehensive CCPA, GDPR, and broader privacy solutions and enables consumers to easily exercise their privacy rights, and businesses to efficiently and securely manage requests from start to finish, together with real automation of Privacy Assessments, like ‘PIAs,’ ‘DPIAs,’ ‘RoPAs,’ and more,” stated Justin Antonipillai, WireWheel CEO. “This new step between WireWheel and BigID enables both companies to bring real, usable automation and deep technology to privacy offices around the world.”
As part of the partnership’s kick-off, WireWheel and BigID hosted the webinar, “How to Save Time and Money on Your Privacy Program with the Right Technology and Expertise.” Now available on demand.
