Democratizing synthetic data privacy protection in enterprises

With enterprise-grade privacy features and provable anonymity, synthetic data adoption is a breeze.

How do you ensure the privacy
and security of synthetic data?

The popularity of synthetic data is on the rise. For many teams, synthetic data  represents a safe way to innovate without breaching personal data regulations. But synthetic data is not exempt from the re-identification risks that the GDPR requires companies to assess.

Our privacy evaluators enable data teams to assess the robustness of synthetic data against re-identification attacks in a single click. With Statice Evaluators, enterprises can simplify the adoption of synthetic data, easily comply with anonymization requirements, and protect individuals' privacy.

The privacy of synthetic data

The synthetic data generation process irreversibly breaks one-to-one links between synthetic and real records. This approach is irreversible and reduces the re-identification risk.

However, the deep learning models used for synthetic data generation might memorize features during the synthesization process. Ultimately, these memorized patterns can be reproduced in the synthetic data, leading to privacy leaks.

The risk assessment of synthetic data is left up to each company's discretion. Due to the limited recommendations available, implementing risk assessment becomes a challenge, and individuals' privacy is at risk. To address this gap, we developed a set of evaluations that let you measure the re-identification  risks of synthetic data.

The Statice Privacy Evaluators

This evaluation kit provides a data-driven assessment of the protection against all known re-identification risks related to synthetic data.

Benefits for data stakeholders

Fast deployment of synthetic data for data science teams thanks to a ready-to-use privacy kit

Easy documentation of the robustness of data protection to ease compliance processes for DPOs

A state-of-the-art level of protection of data subjects’ privacy and business secrets

Linkability evaluator

This Linkability evaluator measures the re-identification risk by evaluating how much help the synthetic data gives to an attacker who wants to establish links between records belonging to the same individual.

Inference evaluator

The Inference evaluator detects privacy leaks by assessing how much information an attacker with partial knowledge of the original data could gain by seeing the synthetic data. If the synthetic data provides more information about the training data than it provides about held-out test data, there is a privacy leak. 

Singling out evaluator

The Singling out evaluator analyzes the probability of isolating records that would identify an individual. It measures the robustness of the dataset against a scenario in which an attacker would use the synthetic data to determine the presence of an individual in the dataset.

European enterprises are using the Statice evaluators

Provinzial's data team had to provide a high privacy-preserving solution that satisfied the GDPR and internal privacy requirements. Other tools posed a greater risk of re-identification and provided no means of assessing privacy. By using the Statice evaluators, they saved 3 months in evaluating data privacy risks.
