Data Breaches, Cybersecurity, data ownership, PII.... does it sound familiar? Have you thought how GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA or APPI in Japan affect every day's business? Is it "legal" to send client data over the internet? Are you interested to know what it takes to control the privacy of your client’s data?

Pangeanic answers these questions and presents how the MAPA Project creates an easily customizable, open-source multilingual anonymization docker for public administrations. The service also lets private enterprise utilize to add extra security levels on their data, or support daily transactions whenever medical, legal or personal data needs to be shared.
