Better Safety Outcomes For The Construction Industry
Wood Group, a prominent engineering firm, faced a complex challenge in the construction industry. They needed to identify safety incident patterns across organizations to gain a deeper understanding of accidents. However, a significant hurdle was the presence of sensitive data in nearly one million safety records, making manual desensitization a time-consuming process.
To address this challenge, Wood Group turned to Data X-Ray, which efficiently desensitized 800,000 safety records by:
Identifying sensitive data within large, unstructured datasets.
Annotating this data with sensitive tags according to a custom redaction policy.
Automatically removing this sensitive data from the datasets.
By leveraging Data X-Ray, Wood Group can now share their safety data with other organizations without compromising privacy. This data sharing will play a pivotal role in improving safety outcomes for the entire construction industry.
Benefits of using Data X-Ray:
Within three months of implementing Data X-Ray, Wood Group successfully automated the discovery and classification of data within their records. They anticipate substantial savings over time, thanks to:
A broader unstructured data framework
Operational efficiency gains
Automated disposition of millions of files
Reduced storage requirements
Streamlined privacy processes
Savings on software licenses
