So you love immutability and want to time-travel your data. But then what happens when the data grows in size and you’re integrating it from various upstream sources? What value of time do you want to time-travel against?
What do you do when data occasionally arrives out of order in a global topology, or if you want to make corrections against the past?
What if we’ve so much data, that we want to start compacting it? What if some of that data is personal data and we need to get rid of it whilst preserving an immutable record?
Crux is a new bitemporal database that addresses these concerns.
GDPR presents a number of difficulties to your business:
The data you store on customers, employees and partners is typically fragment and distributed across multiple systems and documents (e.g. spreadsheets) and file shares.
This data is typically accessed ad-hoc, without enforcing the proper controls.
Responding properly to Data Subject Access Requests is expensive, manual and error-prone.
Having data in multiple systems increases the likelihood of a data breach, which may incur reputational damage and significant fines.
JUXT can help you address these problems:
Crux, our database, allows a very diverse set of records to be stored together, along with the differentiated legal basis of processing for each data category. There is no strict database schema and tables to map records to.
Data can be secured in a single place, with mediated access control, logging and auditing, to ensure personal data is provided to only those authorized system and users that have a legal basis for processing it.
Data extracts can be monitored and reported.
Data Subject Access Requests can be more easily automated, including proper 'erasure' required by Article 17 (using Crux’s eviction capabilities) when there is no longer a business requirement to store the data.
JUXT has many years of developing and hosting PCI-compliant systems which are highly secure, independently audited and penentration-tested. We treat personal records with the same degree of care and diligence as confidential financial records, respecting the privacy of the end-user.
