How and why build a Visual Data Inventory?

In today’s digital world, businesses collect and process a significant amount of personal information. This data can include everything from names and contact information to financial and health-related data. To protect this information, businesses need to have a clear understanding of what data they have, where it’s stored, and how it’s used. That’s where the Visual Data Inventory service offered by Managed Privacy Canada comes in. There are numerous products on the market that create such inventories.

Privacy Compliance Dashboards

You can use your existing tool to build a data inventory, or you can commission the creation of a new inventory from MPC, using different tools and techniques more suitable to applicable legislation. The Visual Data Inventory service allows businesses to build a Personal Identifiable Information (PII) data inventory, helping them to establish a language of protection across the organization. The service includes a session with an MPC Privacy Advisor who will guide the business through the process of building their PII data inventory. The Privacy Advisor will work with the business to identify all the personal information that is collected and processed by the organization, where it is stored, and how it is used.

The Visual Data Inventory is a powerful tool for businesses that want to ensure that they have a clear understanding of the personal information they collect and process. By building a PII data inventory, businesses can ensure that they have a solid foundation for their privacy program. This includes identifying potential privacy risks and taking steps to address them proactively.

In conclusion, the Visual Data Inventory service offered by Managed Privacy Canada is a valuable tool for businesses that want to build a solid foundation for their privacy program. By establishing a clear understanding of the personal information they collect and process, businesses can identify potential privacy risks and take steps to address them proactively, helping to maintain the trust of their customers and stakeholders.
