A Critical Component of Your Privacy Program

In today’s digital world where organizations process more personally identifiable information (PII) & protected health information (PHI) than ever before, you can do everything right and still experience a cyber incident.

Don't wait for that to happen to understand what’s in your data with certainty and specificity. With Privacy Audit, you can proactively determine how your organization handles data now and be empowered to make changes that will mitigate risk in the future.

Use Privacy Audit as part of a robust privacy program to:



Privacy Audit is powered by hundreds of advanced machine learning algorithms that zero in on and classify the PII in an email inbox, a fileshare, or any other data set, from driver’s license and social security numbers to financial data, medical information, and much more. 

Within a few hours, you’ll have an Impact Assessment Report with a high-level analysis of what types of PII (and how much of it) the software detected in your data. 

Dive deep by clicking through individual documents to assess the context surrounding PII disclosure. Privacy Audit sorts documents by the amount of PII they contain, so you can easily focus on the most sensitive and risk-prone files. It also allows you to view all documents containing a specific type of PII (like social security numbers) with one click.


Whether you already have a privacy program in place or are developing one from scratch, Privacy Audit provides critical insights to help you understand employees’ needs and behaviors across your organization.

Traditionally, singular cybersecurity policies and training have been implemented across an entire organization. But departments like Human Resources, Finance, Legal, and Sales handle different types of data in significantly different ways, and their cyber training and policies should account for that.

With metrics from Privacy Audit, you can compare sample data sets from one department or a group of similar people and note how they handle sensitive information. Use these insights to help form or improve your privacy program, enabling your employees to get their work done with a minimized risk of compromising PII.



Cyber threats are constantly evolving and we’re continuously discovering new ways to work securely, so privacy programs must be adaptable. Revisiting your data over time with Privacy Audit helps you check that your privacy program is resonating with employees. It also provides the data needed to have informed conversations about your policies and identify opportunities for improvement.

By allowing both high-level and granular visibility into how employees are handling sensitive data, Privacy Audit makes it possible for you to track compliance, detect gaps, and effectively mitigate risk before an incident occurs.
