Synthetic Mock Data

Introduction Synthetic Mock Data

What is Synthetic Mock Data?

Substitute sensitive PII, PHI and other identifiers with representative Synthetic Mock Data that follow business logic and patterns.

What is PII, PHI and what are identifiers?

PII stands for Personal Identifiable Information. PHI stands for Personal Health Information and is an extended version of PII dedicated for health information. Both PII and PHI are identifiers and relate to any information that can be used to directly distinguish or trace an individual’s identity. Here with identifiers, only one person shares this trait.

Examples of PII, PHI and identifiers

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Phone number
  • Social Security Number, SSN
  • Bank number etc.

Why do organizations use mockers?

PII, PHI and other direct identifiers are sensitive and can be spotted manually or automatically with our PII scanner to save time and minimize manual work. Then, one can apply Mockers to substitute real values with mock values to de-identify data and enhance privacy.
