Q: Why are you asking me to send data through DataTrails?
A: DataTrails is a zero trust fabric for you to send independently verifiable trustworthy data for us to rely on. DataTrails gives us a very simple API that means we can connect your data along with many other suppliers to the automated tools we use to manage 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 with one vendor that may work, but continuously changing data and events won’t scale for all our suppliers 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 your other customers 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 send data to comply with EO14028. You’ll save time and effort storing the data since DataTrails maintains a continuous unbroken record. You’ll help all your other customers too, because the same system can be used to send and keep records of data exchanges.
