As a Software-as-Service (SaaS) provider to educational institutions, Blackboard manages the personal information of millions of students. The company’s innovative privacy-by-design strategy leverages AWS’s shared responsibility model and WireWheel’s privacy and data protection platform to set a new standard for data privacy management in the cloud.

  • Streamlined privacy operations and required documentation to accelerate compliance with GDPR, CCPA and emerging privacy laws.
  • Removed friction from the development process and deployed faster.
  • Build customer trust to accelerate sales.
  • Integrated AWS and WireWheel enabling teams to collaborate on privacy management, with complete visibility over data location, classification and activity.
