RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LandStar, Inc. (OTCPK: LDSR) ("LandStar" or the "Company"), the parent company of Data443™ Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy company, announced today that the Company opened a private beta of their forthcoming Privacy Scanner for Social – initially centered on the Facebook platform.

Jason Remillard, CEO of LandStar and founder of Data443, stated, “Daily news of information leaks, breaches and other losses continue to confound users and consumers.  For months we have been testing a new platform based on the ClassiDocs™ framework that will enable clients to have their existing social profiles, posts and tags scanned for Privacy Information.  We feel providing tools for the public to manage their own privacy is a new frontier in information privacy.”

The Privacy Scanner for Social – by ClassiDocs will enable an end user to have their existing social profiles (Facebook initially) scanned by an automated tool and identify information that they may consider to be private or sensitive.  The tool produces a report that may be actioned by the user according to their needs.  In the future, it will scan automatically and will leverage a community of sensitive patterns.  Today it is the only platform for social privacy scanning that supports over 800 exclusive patterns in 18 languages.  This capability will grow considerably in the coming months.

Data443 is offering a preview of this technology to the public on a private closed beta platform.  Once a user has subscribed to the system, they will receive an approval from the Facebook application for the scanning for them to accept.  Once confirmed the platform will deliver a private URL for the client to scan their existing social profile.  In all cases, no logging or information capture is being performed, and the user may opt out at any time.

“Expanding on our previous work with Ripple and data classification, the privacy scanner is our next iteration in being the global leader in information privacy, governance and compliance products.  Leveraging the sheer mass of public social media platforms to spread brand and technology knowledge – and test out technology in real world conditions.  It is an exciting time to be in this market”, concluded Mr. Remillard.
