Who are we doing this for?

Patient data is often shared by NHS Trusts for research purposes. Particularly in light of the GDPR legislation, it is critical that all personal information be removed from patient records to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified. Traditionally, masking or anonymising records has been a time-consuming, manually intensive process requiring support from IT specialists.

Using a solution developed for the NHS by Northdoor, an NHS Trust deployed a data pseudonymisation application to ensure that all personal data is removed automatically as part of the export process. As a result, a task that required one or two full-time resources is now fully automated while remaining in compliance with NHS regulations.

While external access to data was properly controlled and documented for a Japanese Bank, there were concerns about the ability to monitor internal user access to privileged information in real time. Northdoor implemented a solution that tracks access and provides audit logs for all users across all data sources, with real-time alerts configured for selected critical applications.
