Data mapping: an essential task for cybersecurity and compliance
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
Businesses collect as much data as they can for convenience, resale, AI training and other reasons. In the past, tracking that data was at best a secondary concern; but no longer. Privacy and security laws require businesses to be more agile than ever. Businesses no longer have the luxury of time when it comes to finding data.
Data mapping is a necessary component of any effective security programme or serious compliance effort. In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Structure-map your data to effectively respond to security incidents
- Take action on time-sensitive obligations imposed by new laws (particularly the CCPA and GDPR)
- Use your knowledge of your data to implement more effective cybersecurity controls.
