GDPR Compliance Step#1:
Know Your Data

Think you know all about personal data in your enterprise? Think again.
Discover the fundamental first step for GDPR compliance.

GDPR Requires Accurate Discovery of All Personal Data

You have to know where sensitive and personal data is located before you can take steps to protect it. That’s not an easy task without Dataguise.

Technology alone won’t achieve GDPR compliance. But one technology solution can help you get there faster, with a stronger footing, than any other.

GDPR Compliance at a Glance

Know and document all the personal data your organization holds—any type of data, in any system or repository, at any time.

This is the foundation of all GDPR compliance and involves identifying and reporting the exact location of all personal data you have, in all its varied and vague formats. That’s no small feat for any company, but it is especially challenging for large, global organizations with petabytes of data moving across cloud and on-premises environments. 440-263-2384.

Without delay, inform individuals of all the personal data you hold about them—and why, how, and by whom it is being used.

The “right of access” mandate in the GDPR gives individuals the right to know what data you hold about them, how and why it is being used and accessed, and by whom. You must be able to retrieve and present this information without delay. Learn how Dataguise can help.

Protect personal data at all times—via access policies, pseudonymization (masking), encryption, or erasure.

The existence of appropriate safeguards, such as pseudonymization or encryption, may help you retain personal data for business processing by you or a third party, and will also reduce your compliance burden in the event of a data breach. At the same time, you must be prepared to erase personal data when individuals exercise their “right to be forgotten.” Learn how Dataguise can help.

Detect, investigate, and report a personal data breach—and notify those affected within 72 hours.

You’ll need to notify your supervisory data authority and/or affected data subjects as early as 72 hours after becoming aware of a high-risk data breach. As soon as possible you should be able to pinpoint exactly which data was exposed, how and when the unauthorized access occurred, and the measures you’ve taken to mitigate adverse effects. Monitoring personal data more precisely will help speed time to resolution. 800-322-7017.

Put in place and maintain records of personal data protection policies and processes to demonstrate GDPR compliance.

In addition to documenting data protection policies and processing activities, you may need to keep track of which people or systems are accessing personal data, whether inside or outside your organization. Data transfers to third parties or countries may also require additional documentation of technical security measures. Learn how Dataguise can help.
