The Challenge:
How to Ensure Data Privacy and Compliance

Organizations collect more data than ever before which comes with the necessary responsibility of how this information is stored, shared, protected and used.  Data privacy and compliance reporting to adhere to regulations has become a critical part of managing a business. There are a number of challenges to balancing data privacy and compliance reporting without sacrificing employee productivity including:

  • Managing legal issues and differing regulations across geographies.
  • Ensuring data collected adheres to security and compliance policies.
  • Identifying employee improper handling and safeguarding of data.
  • Protecting employee data privacy to ensure it is not violated.
  • Mitigating breach potential from outsourced &/or remote employees.

Tools to automate workflows and manage and monitor data flow through a user activity log all have key roles to play in managing data privacy, compliance reporting and risk.

Reduce Risk & Enforce Compliance Reporting Policies

It’s important to understand typical employee work patterns. Having a clear picture of what is routine and what is anomalous can help uncover potentially noncompliant and risky activities even if unintentional.

  • Analyze user risk scores to uncover user behavior most likely to violate data compliance policies.
  • Enforce policies with reminder notifications to users when actions are potentially non-compliant.
  • Automatically block or terminate applications you define as potential for malware.
  • Set alarms to get notifications in Slack, MS Teams or other messaging channels when risky activities are detected.

Our Approach to Compliance, Data Privacy and Employee Monitoring

Improving productivity requires the collection and monitoring of data to establish a baseline upon which you can measure improvement – otherwise known as employee monitoring. We know employee monitoring and activity analysis have a mixed history and association with heavy oversight and erosion of trust. ActivTrak intends to change that by focusing on the real output of employee monitoring: improved productivity and enhanced data privacy and compliance.

We designed ActivTrak from an ethical position:

with key elements of transparency, collaboration and informed insight. We’ve deliberately developed a powerful platform that focuses on the collection of contextual data, avoiding invasive employee monitoring technologies like continuous screenshots and keystroke logging.

We invite ActivTrak users of our product to accompany us on this journey to shift employee monitoring from the generation of oversight and into the results and data-driven space that is workforce analytics.
