Automated data mapping is the process of using software to identify and track the flow of sensitive information within an organization. This includes identifying where personal data is stored, who has access to it, and how it is used.
Data mapping is essential for data privacy compliance as it allows organizations to meet the requirements of data protection laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). These laws require organizations to have a clear understanding of where personal data is stored and how it is used and to be able to demonstrate compliance to regulators.
As the volumes of data we produce and the number of data sources continue to increase, it becomes evermore important to automate data mapping to facilitate rapid discovery, classification and inventory of your PII and sensitive data.
Automated data mapping makes it easier for organizations to meet these requirements by automating the process of identifying and tracking sensitive information. This can save time and reduce the risk of human error, as manual data mapping can be time-consuming and prone to errors.
Additionally, automated data mapping can also help your organization to identify and address potential data breaches or security vulnerabilities more quickly. By providing a clear view of where sensitive information is stored and how it is used, automated data mapping can help you identify potential vulnerabilities and take steps to protect personal data.
Automated data mapping is essential for data privacy compliance as it allows organizations to meet legal requirements, save time and reduce human error, and identify your company's potential security vulnerabilities more quickly.
