How to Thrive in Today’s Rapidly Changing Data-Focused Environment

Organisations are facing increasingly complex challenges and rising business risk associated with non-compliance to new and existing privacy regulations, data breaches and cybersecurity attacks. But it is data that is tying everything together.

The first step to protecting, using appropriately or eliminating information, is to know what you have, where you have it, why you have it and who you share it with. Without this basic foundation, you have limited chances of success achieving any Legal GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) objective.

That is why a comprehensive and robust data inventory must become the bedrock of your Legal GRC efforts. Without one, operationalising your data privacy practices, such as data retention or DSARs, is extremely challenging and inefficient.

Establishing a defensible position and minimising risk, while successfully demonstrating your compliance in audits by supervisory authorities, can be achieved with a fit-for-purpose data inventory. Your Legal GRC efforts will thrive if you build around your data map and leverage its significant value as a true business asset.

Exterro teamed up with ACC Australia to explore how new technologies can help solve your Legal GRC challenges and the similarities and differences between data protection in Australia, Europe, and the U.S.
