Data Mapping

To better understand how personal data, sensitive data and trade secrets move through your organisation it is necessary to audit and map this process.

For example, when an investigation begins, one may ask if the company have a way of getting the relevant information about personnel:

  • HR records
  • Accounting / structured data
  • Server email / IM data / file server
  • Server behaviour / backup / sync
  • Laptop / desktop / device / mobile
  • Archival or knowing when to delete

  • Understanding local employment / data privacy / jurisdictional issues, international obligations and having the legal framework to support this is key.
