Industrial Pseudonymisation for Healthcare 

Savings of over 60% in healthcare pseudonymisation 

Luxembourg, 18 July 2020 – The alarming increase in cyberthreats and tougher regulation on data privacy and security have made pseudonymisation of data a key requirement for new and for existing applications. This trend can be observed across sectors and application domains, in particular in data-sensitive areas such as financial services, industry 4.0, smart city, smart infrastructure and healthcare. 

Industrialising pseudonymisation in Lego Blocks 

In the past, implementation of pseudonymisation was a tedious and costly process. Typically, it was implemented in individual software projects, costs were high and replicability was low. DataVaccinator with its claim to “vaccinate data against abuse” is the pioneer for industrialised pseudonymisation and promises to make pseudonymisation a commodity as CTO Volker Schmid states: “It is our mission to develop the Lego blocks for pseudonymisation that programmers need to build new or re-engineer legacy applications. With DataVaccinator, data is separated right at the root into content data and data that identifies a person or object, thereby mitigating major cyber risks. We make the software available as open source in order to drive adoption across Europe. This will also open up new partnerships beyond the regify ecosystem.” 

ITTM masters pseudonymisation for applications in Medical / IoT 

For ITTM, a Luxemburg-based software and IT services company in BioIT, pseudonymisation of data has become a major requirement as Managing Director Dr. Andreas Kremer explains: “Pseudonymisation is a must have for BioIT apps. Instead of developing own mechanisms for our software platform Com4care and for individual software projects, we simply integrated DataVaccinator, thereby cutting time and cost for pseudonymisation by over 60%. As the DataVaccinator source code is publicly available as open source and its development involves a whole community of developers, quality of the modules is high as well as trust from the user side. We and our customers are glad that industrialisation has finally come to pseudonymisation.”
