Q: Why are you sending me data through DataTrails?
A: DataTrails is a zero trust fabric for us to send you independently verifiable trustworthy data for you to rely on. DataTrails solves this problem with a very simple API that means you are free to connect our data to whichever automated tools you use or plan to use for managing third party risk
Q: Why is DataTrails better than alternatives?
A: Why don’t I just email the data may be what you’re thinking. For a single data exchange that may work, but continuously changing data and events won’t scale that way. Losses happen when people are in the loop. Data gets delayed, goes missing in action and errors are introduced. The biggest loss is our valuable time that could be better spent doing something else. A tool to automate, set and forget is the answer – that’s DataTrails.
Q: Why not use a database instead of DataTrails?
A: Who should host, maintain and manage access? Who will on and off-board users with appropriate roles and permissions? Who is admin and can potentially corrupt records? Do you want to set up database connections to ALL other suppliers in the same way? DataTrails solves these challenges.
Q: What’s in it for me to use DataTrails?
A: You’ll save time using DataTrails to build your Zero Trust Architecture and comply with EO14028. You’ll save time auditing the data since DataTrails maintains a continuous unbroken record. You can appoint a third party to monitor the same data too if you like, if you don’t have the resources in place to make full use of the data.
Q: How do I use DataTrails?
A: Create a free account and sign in. Send us your subject ID and we’ll set up the sharing policy. Once you have access to the shared data, you’ll know immediately when events occur, including if we ever switch off data sharing. You’ll have better things to do than watch our UI, so we recommend using the API to ingest data into one of your favorite “single-panes-of-glass”.
