Data as The New Currency: Developments in Data and Where Do PETs Fit In | Kisaco Research

As data becomes more valuable, it's important for data scientists to leverage privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) while ensuring the integrity of their results through appropriate legal and governance frameworks, including audits. However, it's also crucial for PETs to be made more accessible to non-technical users. To make PETs work effectively, all players, from legal compliance to security teams, must come together. It's also important to focus less on technology and more on enabling value across different functions.

While the digitisation of information continues to grow, organisations must be strategic about preserving privacy. Regulations, governance, and policies are all at the forefront of standardising data collaboration practices. While they may differ by nation, industry, or even project type or scope, data-driven enterprise customers understand the importance of these standards. To stay on top of developments in the PETs landscape, it's important for data-driven enterprises to understand how it has changed, how it will evolve, and what the top priorities should be.
