By completing the following steps, organizations can put themselves in the best position to effectively manage their data privacy obligations:
Perform data discovery – Understand where and what type of personal and sensitive information you have
Create a data workflow map – See how personal and sensitive information moves inside and outside an organization
Use both physical and electronic security to reduce the risk of an incident
Keep and use information for only what is necessary and for its stated purpose
Plan ahead – Make sure to have an incident response plan in place
Create IG Policies
How to create Information Governance policies to avoid damaging reputation and fines.
Installing an effective Information Governance policy is a challenge for any organization, but it is a challenge that is essential. Companies are increasingly facing regulatory fines and reputational harm if they don’t have the proper policies in place.
Understanding their data is the biggest challenge that most companies face. Knowing what data they collect, where they store it, and how it is used is a complicated undertaking. A full understanding requires both technology and expertise to ensure compliance with data privacy regulations, not to mention mitigating the harms stemming from a possible data breach.
