It's Time to Rethink Your Approach to Data Breach Response

Improve accuracy and meet notification deadlines faster with Canopy's AI-powered software.

Purpose-Built for Every Phase

When a cybersecurity event occurs, incident response teams must race the clock to determine whether it is legally considered a breach. Was personally identifiable information (PII) or protected health information (PHI) compromised? If so, they could be bound by strict, non-negotiable notification deadlines enforced by GDPR, HIPAA, FERPA, and other data privacy regulations — or risk consequences like fines and damage to their reputation.

Powered by AI and machine learning, Canopy’s patented Data Breach Response software reduces the time, cost, risk, and effort associated with the defensible detection of sensitive data. Here’s how it streamlines data breach response at every step:

PHASE ONE

Process

Canopy’s hundreds of machine learning algorithms are continuously trained to detect PII/PHI in any data set, from emails and text documents to spreadsheets, PDFs, and many other file types.

Whether your data is structured or unstructured, the software immediately scans it, unpacks and categorizes the files, and classifies the PII — no prior data normalization necessary. In fact, we recommend that you avoid normalizing the data and leave the heavy lifting to us.

Canopy often completes processing within hours, then generates an automatic Impact Assessment Report that provides an overview of the data set, including the types and quantities of found PII elements and which documents contain them.

PHASE TWO

Assess

Say goodbye to data mining via endless rounds of regex and keyword searches. Instead, harness Canopy’s AI-powered processing to get to the PII in your data faster.

Thanks to the processing Canopy does in phase one, you’ll have all of the insights you need to immediately begin assessing the project scope. Our PII detection and filtering capabilities make it easy to flag sensitive documents for review and ignore the rest, and advanced functionality like our gallery view enables you to move even faster.

Because Canopy eliminates the need for iterative search, a single person can typically estimate the project scope and review cost on the same day they begin their assessment — and the results will be more accurate, too.

PHASE THREE

Review

Canopy helps teams work significantly faster through PII Review while simultaneously decreasing the risk of human & keystroke error.

Our software uses machine learning to make it both fast and easy for reviewers to link the PII detected in your data to people. PII is clearly highlighted as reviewers click through documents, enabling them to quickly create entity profiles for individuals and connect them to breached data elements — all while maintaining links back to source documents.

As Canopy learns about a specific project, its AI turns the process of linking PII to entities into a simple “accept or reject” workflow, eliminating the need to copy-and-paste data into spreadsheets.

PHASE FOUR

Consolidate

Forget about spreadsheets and SQL — our Data Breach Response software's advanced entity management functionality takes the heavy lifting out of entity resolution.

In addition to automatically deduplicating identical people within an entity list, Canopy also suggests merging entities when one individual is referred to in varying ways throughout the data, as might be seen with nicknames, abbreviated names, or maiden names.

This entity management functionality saves response teams significant time by removing the need to manually locate and match repeated references to the same person throughout a data set.

PHASE FIVE

Notify

The ultimate deliverable of any data breach response project is a deduplicated list of unique affected individuals and their compromised PII.

Canopy consolidates all of this information as reviewers work so that the entity list is ready to export as soon as the review is complete.

And because certain jurisdictions and industries have specific notification requirements, Canopy provides export options to meet your unique needs.

Battle-Tested & Proven Technology

Canopy’s Data Breach Response software has been used on hundreds of incidents, and its algorithms have identified tens of billions of PII/PHI elements. The software is in active use worldwide on projects of all types and sizes — from standard business email compromises (BECs) to multi-terabyte ransomed file shares, and everything in between.
