Key Challenges Addressed
Performing a data mapping project can be a resource-intensive process, especially for larger organisations that handle a large amount of data and have numerous processing activities, which often requires an understanding of different data types and the relationship between distinct data sets.
While this can be achieved with an automated data mapping tool, this doesn’t bring the human insight necessary to interpret how this affects an organisation’s risk profile.
Organisations may also attempt to perform manual data mapping but without certified experts, this can be time-consuming for key stakeholders or – at worst - introduce errors in the final documentation.
How it Works
To begin the process, Bridewell holds workshops with key stakeholders within the organisation to understand how they use personal data and what processing activities are currently undertaken. These insights are used to create a comprehensive record of processes, critical assets, and suppliers, and to understand technical and organisational security measures relating to data, including cross-border flows of personal data.
Following this, Bridewell will create all necessary documentation as part of a Record of Processing Activities (RoPA). As a follow-on service, Bridewell can provide all the tools necessary for clients to maintain this record themselves. Updates to this documentation are required by law and can be provided as an ongoing service from Bridewell’s data privacy consultants.
If additional tooling is required within the organisation or recommended to aid future data privacy projects, Bridewell can support with tool selection and implementation.
Data mapping doesn’t just have to be personal data. From Bridewell’s perspective, it is a transferable skill set that can be applied to any kind of data – including business to business flows.
