An up-to-date overview is important, and not only to comply with the regulatory provisions of the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) and its European counterpart, the GDPR. Risk management must also take into account systems that store sensitive data. With Sensitive Data Services, you get the overview you need and can respond accordingly.
Data protection is the most important reason for keeping track of where precisely sensitive information is stored. However, it’s also about data security and managing risk. This is where important questions arise: is customer and personal data sufficiently protected in the event of a cyber attack and stored only in designated locations? Are steps taken to ensure that sensitive data does not accidentally fall into the wrong hands (data leakage)? This can happen, for example, if data is not anonymised on a test platform or is shared with third parties. The more complex the IT infrastructure, the greater the importance of data monitoring such as Sensitive Data Services for inventorisation and classification of data.
