How Cognoa Improved Data Management Practices for AI-Based Medical Diagnostics with Immuta

As an intangible asset, data is not physically restrained. But data localization laws are changing that notion.

The number of global data localization laws dictating data residency and sovereignty has more than doubled in just the past five years. With data sharing and collaboration across borders now an essential part of the global economy, organizations must strategize how to solve for data localization laws without locking down data entirely.

In this white paper, you’ll find:

  • A data owner (or another privileged user) can now manually add anyone to a data source, meaning they are able to bypass the policy completely – the equivalent of an approval. This was not previously possible.
  • Enabling approvals in an ABAC policy will automatically enable data source discovery. Since users who don’t meet the ABAC conditions can’t discover the data source, then the presence of approvals in the policy is unnecessary.
  • On merge, if one or more policies do not have discovery enabled, then approvals will be automatically removed from the final merged policy. This is because Immuta will always fall back to principle of least privilege, and in this case, one of the policy owners does not want the table to be discoverable.
