Facit recently installed Identity Cloak redaction software to help King’s College Hospital to manage video data subject access requests (DSARs). The healthcare sector has seen a steady increase in DSARs. About selecting Identity Cloak the hospital’s Head of Security says: “We are completely satisfied with our choice”
King’s College Hospital is one of London’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals. As a progressive organisation, the hospital sought to fulfil DSARs and comply with data privacy regulations without depleting precious budgets and without wasting valuable expert resources on laborious administrative tasks.
The hospital chose Identity Cloak as its redaction tool for a number of reasons.
Ian Taylor, Head of Security, highlights the fact that “the application sits within our own network, which ensures that the Trust’s video never leaves our own secure environment, rather than having to place our video in the Cloud, which was an issue here at the Trust.”
He added: “The multi-mode options give us flexibility and enables us to ensure that we provide the correct video output for each specific request we receive.”
Identity Cloak multi-mode is a function that enables operators to choose how they process redaction. Options include starting the process by redacting all or none of the people in a video, and then revealing the subject(s) of interest or anonymising third parties; or applying blur on the video in order to select areas to remain clear.
The latest Identity Cloak upgrade includes audio capture, which enables King’s to process body worn devices through the application. The addition of audio adds a layer of evidence that can provide context and additional facts about how situations develop and unfold.
