Application, Data & Process Flows
Aligning and knowing what your applications are doing, what Personal Data has been Processed and what the reason and rights associated with processing are, is a core fundamental of Data Protection. This suite of tools provides end-to-end life-cycle management of Data Subject Personal Data from inception to disposition.
Data Protection Laws require that Controllers know what Personal Data they have, where it is and who has access to it. They also require that records be kept of when it is processed and the purpose that it is processed for.
The GDPMS provides a number of tools that bring together the "LIFE-CYCLE" of your Personal Data. What applications process it, where it has come from, where it is stores and what the end-to-end processing is that touches it.
The GDPMS uses a unique approach called a "Data Collection Campaign" in which the business needs to define a number of criteria to answer the questions that a regulator will need to know (if audited) about the Personal Data processing. It also ensures that every item of concern is considered and addressed.
Once this process has been completed, all the documents by way of Data Subject Notices are automatically generated, we call these "Collection Statements' and they are integrated into your processing or project, together with any Data Protection Impact Assessments or Legitimate Interest Assessments, which all become a matter of the Processing Record of fact.
This simple process allows the business to maintain and monitor its compliance against the use of its Personal Data, and in the event of a Data Breach, the GDPMS will use this information to identify reporting channels and the effort that is going to be required to comply with all the necessary laws that the data breach will be subject to. And, it's rarely a single law.
The Data Flow Map Builder and Application Register together with legal Agreements, Collection Statements and all necessary elements of the Data Life-Cycle are captured and then displayed in a graphical form that is easily understood by users.
