GovLoop: PETs Can Expand Government Data Usage

In this E-book excerpt, Enveil CEO Ellison Anne Williams offers insight on how Privacy Enhancing Technologies can expand government data usage.

The language of IT often includes four-syllable words that seem divorced from everyday understanding. One exception is the friendly acronym PETs, or privacy enhancing technologies — tools that help agencies enable, enhance and preserve the privacy of data throughout its lifecycle. When agencies use sensitive data in digital environments, PETs can help protect this information as well as the interests and intent of the person using the data.

“What does it mean to secure the usage of data? Well, if you think about it, the way that business or governmental organizations will most meaningfully process data to extract its insights or intelligence is by running some kind of search or analytic. So when we talk about securing the usage of data, we mean being concerned about the security and privacy posture of that analytic, as it’s being performed,” Ellison Anne Williams said.

Read the full E-book here, featuring insights captured during GovLoop’s December 2021 virtual event — Innovation in Real-Time: How Gov Is Pushing Forward. The event was sponsored by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
