Data Portability Control

The Data Portability Control (DPC) tool implements the right of data portability, a novelty of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), that allows individuals to obtain and reuse personal data from one environment to another in a privacy-preserving fashion. More specifically, it incorporates the necessary tools to import data from multiple platforms (through the available Data Sources), process the data to remove sensitive information (through the Data Transformation Engine), and outport into other platforms (through the Data Export module).

The Data Portability Control (DPC) tool implements the right of data portability, a novelty of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), that allows individuals to obtain and reuse personal data from one environment to another in a privacy-preserving fashion. More specifically, it incorporates the necessary tools to import data from multiple platforms (through the available Data Sources), process the data to remove sensitive information (through the Data Transformation Engine), and outport into other platforms (through the Data Export module). Since the tool does not have a dedicated UI for interacting with the users, it provides an interface in a form of a generic Control API for controlling all operations from other systems.

Benefits

By using the DPC tool, an organisation can satisfy the right of data portability to its users. At this stage the tool provides support for the following features:
-  Data aggregation from Banking data through an Open Banking API (TrueLayer).
-  A generic data anonymization that hides specific data categories (or columns) from selected DPC-related imported data that are considered sensitive.
-  Data export in a common data interchange format (e.g., JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)).
