Poseidon is one of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Cluster projects that aims to develop an innovative Privacy Enhancing Dashboard for personal data protection supporting the digital security pillars of the new EU’s GDPR.
PoseID-on aims at supporting public and private organizations to properly respond to the new EU regulations by also gaining substantial advantages for their own activities. In fact, the Privacy Enhanced Dashboard will enable organizations to enforce their traditional procedures.
The main novelty of all the tools that will be developed and delivered by PoseID-on, within the Privacy Enhanced Dashboard, is the securitization of their open architecture by means of the implementation of the Permissioned Blockchain and Smart Contracts, which will enable contextual guarantee of accountability, transparence and compliance with rights to data protection. Additional innovation is also provided by the integration of the Permissioned Blockchain technology with other state of the art technologies within the Privacy Enhanced Dashboard namely, cloud, access management according to eIDAS (electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services, the EU regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market) and privacy management. These will make the Privacy Enhanced Dashboard (PED) a novel tool offering most of the latest innovative technologies in the ICT sector in a box.
Moreover, PoSeID-on will be delivered as a set of open source tools and toolkits, that can be separately deployed by potential users, according to their specific needs. This will definitely mitigate the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for public agencies facing budget constraints as well as for private SME with limited IT budget thus increasing the number of the potential joiners to a specific ecosystem platform. Accordingly, PoseID-on envisages different services/products to be potentially delivered, according to the considered target. The primary expected outcomes of PoseID-on are:
In this light, PoSeID-on will be a strong enabler for implementing any kind of digital collaboration between public organizations as well as private ones and among themselves as it will solve or mitigate most of the privacy issues and concerns which represents the main obstacles to ecosystem platform establishment.
PoSeID-on will develop and deliver an innovative intrinsically scalable platform, as an integrated and comprehensive solution aimed to safeguard the rights of data subjects , exploiting the cutting-edge technologies of Smart Contracts and Blockchain, as well as support organizations in data management and processing while ensuring GDPR compliance.
Stay tuned as we bring you more details to know more about this POSEIDON and how they will help the cyber security and privacy community in driving GDPR in EU.
