A New Way to Quickly and Easily Discover PII Data in Just 10 Seconds

Authors: Hans Swanson

Have you ever been bored and googled what can you do in 10 seconds? Let’s hope not, but now that you’re curious…

According to my search, you can fold your shirt like a ninja, peel garlic the super-fast and easy way, solve a Rubik’s cube in two moves, and fill and tie 100 water balloons. Some super smart people read these blogs so I believe some of you can solve the Rubik’s Cube in 10 seconds.


The rest? No way.


What if I told you that you can also discover sensitive PII data in roughly 10 seconds? I’m guessing you’re now thinking, “No way.” But, luckily, the team at Wavicle has introduced an even better hack than deseeding a pomegranate in 10 seconds.


6 Steps to a New Data Privacy Job


Wavicle, an award-winning data and analytics consulting firm, has been building proprietary accelerators to help our clients get more value from their data faster, easier, and cheaper. Now, we’re offering that same technology in a unified augmented data platform called, you guessed it, Augment.


Augment was built to fill a gap we saw when we helped a leading brand manually track and update its privacy information.


The platform uses machine learning and natural language processing to discover and manage PII data so you can meet GDPR, CCPA, HIPPA, and the newest privacy acronym, VCDPA (yes, that’s one more fine you will need to avoid) requirements.


It also catalogs your sensitive data across your ecosystem and sends you alerts if there’s an issue.

How does Augment help you discover PII?

First, you can discover PII in 7 super simple steps. The only typing required is the name. After that, simply choose an option from the drop-down menus.
