Comprehensive Data mapping
Understanding where your data is, what processes use it, who you share it with, where you back it up and what security measures you apply is fundamental to a good secure data privacy program.

Get this part right and the rest can follow. Get this wrong and you will not trust your information. Capture what data you hold, why you have it and how you use it (each and every process) is the first step. Then understand how you look after it (security, retention, backups etc) and bring this all together into a data register. Now add flexible reporting and visualisation capabilities and you will be in control of your data and will, for example, have the confidence to delete data when you need to.
