Simplify GDPR Compliance

Is your business ready for the increased privacy and data protection regulations coming in May 2018?

The Pillar Wallet for Business has you covered!

Data shows that most Businesses aren’t Prepared for EU GDPR Data Protection Enforcement

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to any company in the world that collects any personal data on an EU individual, even if it’s only their IP address. Not only must companies encrypt all personal data, businesses are also required to inform individuals on how each piece personal data collected is used.

The EU GDPR fines for data protection noncompliance are significant and daunting.

Wave goodbye to GDPR regulation headaches

The Pillar Wallet for Business handles all customer account creation and maintenance enabling businesses to focus on their core mission, instead of customer management and data security. Our solution places individuals back in control of their data, providing protection, security and compliance with all upcoming, required regulations.

Summary of GDPR Requirements

  • Individuals must be informed of: who is collecting their data, what is being done with it, and who it is shared with.
  • Individual must consent to all personal data that is being obtained by the business.

GDPR-compliant solutions for Consent and Access Management

Sounds daunting, right? What if you could offload your customer account creation and maintenance functions and have the customer in control of their personal data?

The Pillar Wallet provides data protection, security and the interoperability needed to effectively operate in the world of today and tomorrow. This enables businesses to focus on product development, instead of customer management and data security.

Customer account management and access to all of the consumer rights identified in the EU GDPR regulation are managed or initiated in the Pillar Wallet.

GDPR Individuals’ Right Pillar Wallet Functionality
The right to be informed: encompasses your obligation to provide “fair processing information”, typically through a privacy notice. It emphasises the need for transparency over how you use personal data. The information you supply about the processing of personal data is displayed to the individual in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible manner. It is displayed at the time that the personal data is obtained by the business. It also includes information on the other rights available to the individual.
The right of access: Individuals have the right to obtain: confirmation that their data is being processed; access to their personal data; and other supplementary information. The wallet can generate a subject access request to your business, then display the requested data to the individual. The wallet can also receive, display and store Consent Receipts from the services where you have granted access.
The right to rectification: Individuals are entitled to have personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete. When personal data that your business has obtained is changed, the wallet prompts the individual to communicate that change to you. If the wallet is aware of any third parties that you provided that information, it can initiate a change request to them as well.
The right to erasure: This is also known as “the right to be forgotten”. This enables an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. The wallet can generate an erasure request to your business. If the wallet is aware of any third parties that you provided that information, it can initiate an erasure request to them as well.
The right to restrict processing: Individuals have a right to “block” or suppress processing of personal data. The wallet can generate a block request to your business. If the wallet is aware of any third parties that you provided that information, it can initiate a block request to them as well.
The right to data portability: This allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services. It allows them to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability. The wallet can generate a data portability request to your business. The resulting data can then be transferred to another organization of the individual’s choosing.
The right to object: This right applies to processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling); direct marketing (including profiling); and processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics. The wallet can generate an objection request to your business. If the wallet is aware of any third parties that you provided that information, it can initiate an objection request to them as well.
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling: This provides safeguards for individuals against the risk that a potentially damaging decision is taken without human intervention. The wallet allows an individual to request human intervention, express their point of view, and obtain an explanation of the decision and challenge it.

Next Steps

As the Pillar Project continues to evolve these data protection solutions and as the Pillar Wallet gains mass adoption and evolves into a personal data locker, this platform becomes a valuable integration point for many businesses. Pillar plans to provide services to allow consumers to search across companies for insurance, financial services, and many other products and services.
