Data Protection Policies Tool
What the tool offers
The tool innovation
The automation of the technical policy authoring task, by the means of a template-based mechanism which maps a policy statement to the template to be instantiated. A second point of innovation is the creation of a machine readable policy statements specification that enables automation of the extraction and processing of information about the policy terms.
Technical policies authoring, when performed by humans, is prone to errors and cannot be used at scale. The DPPT tool facilitates this task, in that the technical policies are automatically created based on the policy statements selected and specified by the CSP through the graphical interface offered by the tool. The tool also generates a machine readable representation of the policy statements that can be used to extract information about the policies implemented by the CPS. This representation enables an efficient processing of policy terms that otherwise should be performed by humans, who are required to read and analyse language policy documents.
