Data Mapping: A Necessary Risk Management Tool for Data Compliance

Learn how data mapping can help organizations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other data privacy regulations.

Organizations collect data at a record rate to support everything from improving customer experience to driving operation cost efficiency. As companies collect and process more data, the complexity of managing all the information and ensuring it is secure has also increased exponentially. Simultaneously, there is no end in sight for the proliferation of new international and US state data security laws. Accordingly, boards are asking how the organizations they serve are prepared to deal with these evolving privacy regulations and maintaining compliance with the gowing number of requirements. Unfortunately, the US doesn't have a singular law that covers the privacy of all types of data. Instead, it has a mix of laws that go by acronyms like HIPAA, FCRA, FERPA, GLBA, ECPA, COPPA, and VPPA, to name a few. Currently, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Virginia, and Utah have enacted privacy laws. More than 28 other states have pending or developing data privacy legislation.

To achieve compliance and security, a chief ethics & compliance officer needs to understand their organization’s data flow and data management system to adhere to the many privacy laws, safeguard business-critical data, protect their reputations, and avoid hefty penalties.
