As privacy legislation has expanded in recent years, so has the scope of the privacy programs that support it.
Regulation has been and still is one of the top drivers for privacy programs but the days of “tick-the-box” compliance are no more. As the lines continue to blur between privacy, security, and data governance, privacy teams have shifted focus beyond just their obligations for regulatory compliance and reporting to embedding governance more strategically into the data lifecycle within the business.
Privacy teams face the challenge of being able to continuously adapt to these regulatory developments and data environments, but, one of the most significant of these challenges is the ability to easily find, understand, and protect data. Without a way to find and populate data in a centralized location, privacy teams’ hands are tied.
Addressing this problem should be a privacy team’s priority, however, manual processes can be a time-consuming undertaking. The place to start is with automation. It allows teams to integrate all their systems, discover and classify data, and create a central data inventory. From there, privacy teams can address broader aspects of their privacy programs such as DSARs, incident management, and more.
