Meeting compliance requirements such as consumer rights and consent management
With the help of available tools and technologies, organisations can identify sensitive data and classify it as personally identifiable information (PII) data, which in turn helps in authorising access requests by data subjects. Central data storage systems can be utilised for simpler, faster and more reliable data analysis and auditing of the data in real time, to ensure that consent is in order.
Personalised dashboard with compliance score
Business executives can get access to personalised dashboards to gain insights into business metrics that relate to database safety and get the compliance score for their organisational data to ensure that data collection, storage and usage are as per regulations.
Flexible data access governance
Data access governance tools can help in providing visibility into the type of sensitive data stored, its location, and who holds what type of rights and access over the data, thus allowing organisations to manage data access permissions to enforce least privilege.
Data lineage to track data processing activities
Data lineage helps in keeping a check on the data processing activities. With the help of various tools available today, data repositories and resources can be scanned, and sensitive data can be identified and classified by organisations so as to adhere to compliance regulations. Technology can help organisations to automate the decision-making about data deletion, archival, optimisation of data and data governance.
Enabling notification and breach response
A key requirement of data privacy laws is to ensure that data principals are aware of the purpose and nature of data usage, along with the details of personal data with an organisation. In case of a data breach, the relevant authorities must be informed and based on severity of the breach, data principals may also need to be informed.
It is becoming increasingly important for organisations to integrate communication channels such as email, SMS, call centres and webpages and centrally manage such channels so that data principals can be informed about breaches. Solutions, based on predefined rules, are also available for identification of data breaches. Leveraging such technologies can enable organisations to respond to incidents of data breaches quickly and efficiently.
