IBM® Data Privacy Passports V1.0 is designed to provide Z data protection functionality by enabling expanded coverage across the entire enterprise and is engineered to deliver these core capabilities:

  • Extends data security capability that encompasses data-at-rest and data-in-motion.
  • Protects structured data at the core of the enterprise and may help simplify compliance management in an environment of expanding regulation and requirements.
  • Enables privacy in an open world with granular controls around data usage.

Overview

Top rule

As digital technologies advance and the data explosion continues, the risk of security breaches grows. However, organizations have a need to share important data across internal business units that may not share the same privacy protocols or policies.

To help satisfy this need, IBM delivers Data Privacy Passports V1.0. IBM Z® takes the next step of the data protection journey on IBM z15™ and LinuxONE III servers by extending data protection. Through policy enforcement, this protection stays with the data when it moves beyond the system of record and into distributed and hybrid cloud environments. The Data Privacy Passports offering provides a data-centric security solution that will enable data to play an active role in its own protection. These capabilities are designed so that clients can more easily:

  • Manage regulatory compliance.
  • Remove the complexity of key management.
  • Strengthen their hybrid enterprise with IBM Z encryption.

Description

Top rule

Data Privacy Passports:

  • Extends IBM security leadership by helping to protect data beyond the system of record with data security capability that encompasses data-at-rest and data-in-motion states.

    As data leaves the system of record, use the new Data Privacy Passports offering to protect sensitive personal information in the distributed copy of the data. Through policy enforcement, this protection stays with the data when it moves beyond the system of record and into distributed and hybrid cloud environments. This helps eliminate the possibility that someone could make copies from copies and create a larger potential for information to be exposed, either intentionally or accidentally, compared to using other techniques.

  • Protects structured data at the core of the enterprise and may help simplify compliance management in an environment of expanding regulation and requirements.

    When there is a reason to view the sensitive information, the user can come back to Data Privacy Passports that, by policy, provides a view of that data for that user. This view could be clear, redacted, or using other obscuring techniques, depending on the policy configuration. The transaction is logged so that a data access can be tracked across the enterprise.

  • Enables privacy in an open world with granular controls around data usage.

    Sensitive data in the enterprise is protected through encryption and access to this data with Data Privacy Passports can be removed, either dynamically through policy, or by deleting the encryption key.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
