"The bottom line is simple: Protecting the PII that we’re responsible for is a core part of our privacy program. Canopy’s Privacy Audit gives us a critical capability in this regard."

Brenda Thrasher
IT Director | Intevac

The Challenge

Amid an increasingly volatile threat landscape, Intevac’s IT team launched a comprehensive privacy initiative to ensure that they were appropriately handling sensitive employee data. They needed a robust data mining tool to analyze their repositories and detect personally identifiable information (PII).

The Solution

After months of searching for the right software, Intevac selected Canopy’s Privacy Audit. The IT team quickly completed implementation, training, and onboarding, then began analyzing one department’s PSTs. They had their first Impact Assessment Report within hours.

"Using Privacy Audit’s insights and reporting, our team can sit down with each department to show them how they’re actually handling PII, explain the potential consequences of those actions, and develop a safer way forward."
