Sensitive information can be an organization’s most valuable asset but can also generate inherent risks. Personal data, for example, is governed by an ever-evolving regulatory landscape, dictating what organizations can and cannot do with their sensitive information.
While 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. If you don’t create trusted experiences across the data lifecycle and leverage appropriate tooling across your infrastructure, your organization can’t effectively take advantage of this valuable resource.
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.
