Data privacy laws like GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, the EU AI Act, and more are in place to help protect organizational data from cybersecurity breaches, or unauthorized access, by establishing stringent data security requirements, promoting accountability and governance, and enforcing fines and penalties in cases of noncompliance. While we help organizations minimize vulnerabilities and comply with these regulations, we encourage our customers to go beyond compliance by establishing trust by design across the data lifecycle.

Just like there are varying types of sensitive data, there are also differences in how and where your data resides. Structured data is considered highly organized – formatted to fit a predefined data model or schema like an Excel file or customer database. Examples include names, phone numbers, account numbers, credit card information, social security numbers, and more.

Unstructured data makes up the majority of enterprise data. This type of data cannot be as easily analyzed using conventional data tools. A few examples include emails, multimedia files, or chat conversations. Both structured and unstructured data can contain personally identifiable information or intellectual property that organizations must safeguard.

With OneTrust, you can discover, govern, and secure your data – whether it lives in unstructured file shares, structured databases, big data storage, SaaS applications, or other cloud solutions.
