EY Data Permissions Navigator: managing data privacy risk

Consumer trust is critical. Integrate data ethics and privacy risk to help your organization thrive.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) raised the bar on privacy risk management and compliance, making it essential for companies to assess risk-of-data-use scenarios. EY Data Permissions Navigator (DPN) is designed for first-line data users. It provides an intelligent data privacy risk management platform to address privacy risk, help organizations make the right data-use decisions quickly, and unlock the value of their data.
