The GDPR Data Discovery And Management (DDAM) solution is designed to help organisations gain greater control of the disparate data assets that they have under management, in a way that helps achieve demonstrable ongoing compliance with the responsibilities for data protection that are encapsulated by the GDPR regulation.
The solutions data mining capabilities help you to identify where and in what volumes you are storing personal and sensitive data within your data estate.
Dynamic Data Inventory
Use DDAM’s proprietary ‘indexing’ capability to create a consolidated version of all organisational data: structured (e.g. databases), semi-structured (e.g. emails) and unstructured (e.g. file systems). The scheduling functions ensure that the Data Inventory is periodically refreshed, ensuring that it remains synchronised with the underlying data as it changes and evolves.
Record Data Processing Activities
Tag data as it is loaded into the system with GDPR related metadata tags, including your processing role, the data location, the legal basis for processing etc. to build up a comprehensive record of your processing activity.
Automatically identify privacy risk with your data
Data discovery functions built into DDAM enable you to automatically identify the incidence and types of personal and sensitive data held within your data, allowing you to build a framework of effective and proportionate security controls.
Manage Data Retention
Specify a retention period for a data source, then automatically alert nominated users when the retention period is due to expire and action is required.
Continual Data Audit
Ongoing monitoring of the state of your data landscape with the automatic flagging of issues requiring attention, and analytics showing top data sources for risk, data sources by columns of personal and sensitive data etc.
