Secure Data Sharing with Snowflake Data Clean Rooms

by | Jun 21, 2022 | Data Clean Room, Retail Media, Snowflake

Data is fueling the next wave of business innovation, differentiation, and growth, offering incredible insights and opportunities. While data collaboration and governance can prove challenging, cloud technology makes it easier to find, organize, share, secure, govern, and monetize your data.

Our partners at Snowflake have put all of these capabilities at your fingertips. Let’s explore how Snowflake is helping organizations to achieve dramatic results through data sharing and data clean rooms.

Growing Your Business with Data Sharing

 

Data is power, and sharing data for collaboration offers impressive results. As cited by McKinsey & Company and the World Economic Forum in this Snowflake webinar, connecting data across organizations unlocks $3 trillion in annual value.

Data and analytics leaders who share data externally generate three times more measurable content than those who do not.

How do you share your data with other organizations or across your business in a more secure way? Many begin by sharing files directly using FTP, or leveraging third-party data sharing applications, which offer some security over email sharing.
The problem with these approaches is that they make your data more expensive and difficult to maintain, while also introducing security risks.

A far better solution? Data Clean Rooms.

 

What Is a Data Clean Room?

A data clean room is very much what it sounds like: a secure space to share data that’s been “scrubbed” of any personally identifiable information (PII). In data clean rooms, PII is anonymized, processed, and stored in a manner that meets privacy laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
