A critical component to understanding how an organization’s data (oftentimes consumer data) travels throughout its lifecycle is to develop business processes and data flow diagrams. Successful business process and data flow diagrams are achieved by conducting meetings with business unit representatives, as well as representatives from information technology (IT). These meetings allow for both business unit and IT representatives to develop a baseline understanding of what data is collected and how it is used, processed, shared, stored and retained within and outside of the organization.
The following components should surface throughout this exercise, to then determine how to protect and effectively control personal data:
