How Blackboard Tackled Privacy-By-Design with AWS and WireWheel

As a Software-as-Service (SaaS) provider to educational institutions, Blackboard manages personal information of millions of students. The company’s innovative privacy-by-design strategy leverages AWS and WireWheel to build privacy requirements into products from the beginning of the software development process

Blackboard software design prioritizes data minimization, pseudonymization, and privacy-friendly settings.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) protects sensitive data using advanced, cloud-based architecture and security controls.

Integration between AWS and WireWheel allows teams to collaborate on privacy management, with complete visibility over data location, classification and activity.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how privacy-by-design empowers you to:

Accelerate compliance with GDPR, CCPA and emerging privacy laws

Select and onboard product and data vendors more quickly

Remove friction from the development process and deploy faster

Streamline privacy operations and documentation

Build customer trust to accelerate sales
