BeyData Announces the Release of BeyData Librarian, a Unified Risk Management System for Privacy and Security Risk Accountability

BeyData Librarian introduces unique “hybrid functionality” and a flexible framework that scales to support corporate and regulatory compliance

Concord, New Hampshire, July 5, 2017, BeyData, a leading provider of Risk Management, Data Protection and Compliance Solutions, today announced the release of BeyData Librarian, a hybrid risk management solution, that allows organizations to identify, assess, prioritize, remediate, mitigate and monitor security and privacy risk. BeyData platform technologies are forged from 20+ years of front-line security, data protection and compliance experience, fortified by deep engineering and research expertise. BeyData Librarian’s unique and distributed hybrid architecture allows business users to work in their own environment, without requirements for IT, scaling to support small and medium businesses as well as global enterprise organizations.

The risk of unprotected data and systems has never been greater than it is today, Understanding, addressing and monitoring that risk is not only a regulatory obligation, but the right thing to do. BeyData Librarian brings an elegant and creative technology solution that can be seamlessly deployed across organization, regardless of their size. According to Industry Analyst and Research firm Gartner, “by the end of 2018, more than 50 percent of companies affected by the (EU General Data Protection Regulation) GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements.” Yet it will be imperative according to Gartner for organizations to “demonstrate accountability in all processing activities.” (http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3701117) BeyData Librarian will assist organizations in not only conducting the mandatory Data Protection Impact Assessments, that are a fundamental requirement of high risk processing activities under GDPR, but also to conduct security impact assessments, which are also required for most security and vulnerability risk management programs.

In a business landscape with thousands of regulatory compliance, security and privacy statutes to which organizations worldwide must comply, BeyData Librarian helps organizations meet their obligations by offering:

  • Risk Assessment of privacy and security concerns across a broad framework of regulatory obligations, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), ISO 27001 and 27002, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the US Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and other company specific concerns connected with Personally Identifiable Information, Personal Health Information, Information Assurance, and Operations Security.
  • Hybrid Deployment – Librarian deploys on your desktop, across the enterprise, and allows data to be shared across multiple users, on premise or in the cloud, making deployment simple, easy, and scalable, regardless of the size of your organization or your IT department.
  • Automated Risk Calculation based on Industry Guidance from US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Privacy Framework, the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) Privacy Risk Matrix, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  • Executive “Pilot Inspired” Dashboards and Reporting provide ‘just in time’ visibility to organizational and unit or project specific risk. By combining key requirements for privacy and security teams, Librarian will help organizations, cut costs, reduce risk, and streamline traditionally stove-piped efforts within companies. Bringing together privacy, security and risk teams through a unified framework,

Librarian allows users to mitigate risk with a simple to use but powerful methodology. For more information about the new features and functionality in BeyData Librarian, please visit https://beydata.com/librarian.html .
