Active Navigation Releases Complimentary COVID-19 Rule-Pack in Response to Global Pandemic

WASHINGTON, April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Active Navigation, the data privacy and governance software provider, today announced it is has released a free-to-use COVID-19 Rule-Pack which offers corporate visibility into COVID-19 related activity across an organization's data estate. This Rule-Pack also helps to prepare companies for potential government legislation which may require documentation of pandemic related actions as a wave of COVID-19 related personal data is created, shared and stored.

In response to COVID-19, hundreds of thousands of data points such as geolocation and health information are being generated and analyzed to slow the spread of the virus. While this data may technically not be considered Personally Identifiable Information (PII), it is still sensitive and should be protected. The quick move to a remote workforce has also created data governance challenges as employees work on home networks. The no-cost COVID-19 Rule-Pack, which integrates into Active Navigation's core product, Discovery Center, enables rapid and defensible remediation decisions to be made across any connected repository.

"Businesses can have a huge positive impact during this pandemic, and we feel strongly about working together as a society to support one another," said Peter Baumann, Active Navigation CEO. "With massive amounts of COVID-19 data being shared at an unprecedented scale, we want to actively support organizations, private and public, with governance tools they can implement quickly and securely."

These COVID-19 rules:

    --  Identify specific high-value keywords pertaining to the pandemic and its
        potential impacts
    --  Expediates requests for information to ensure that vital information is
        identified and available, yet properly protected
    --  Helps organizations to rapidly respond to Freedom of Information Act
        (FOIA) requests and reduce the time and cost burden placed on staff and
        resources

Active Navigation will be demoing the Rule-Pack at FEDSpace - the federal data governance conference - later this year. For more information about the Rule-Pack, please contact Active Navigation or read this blog post.
