Data Privacy

Privacy regulations and cross-border data transfers drive need for data management initiatives

A massive rise in personal data collection, cyber breach incidents, and the growing regularity of cross-border data transfers has spurred new global privacy laws, such as the EU’s GDPR, California’s CCPA, and many others, have upended the way organizations track data usage.

Organizations need a scalable way to discover:
  • What data they have

  • How it is used

  • Where it exists

  • Who has access to it

  • Where it flows

  • How it is protected

Organizations must maintain detailed ongoing records for data compliance.

A common problem

Creating and maintaining a data inventory is central to most Information Governance/Privacy Initiatives. Traditionally, data privacy and security leaders have attempted to administrate this process through spreadsheets and traditional risk management solutions. However, these data inventory and mapping initiatives frequently stall due to lack of resources, time and technology and, notably, the result is found to be incomplete or outdated.
