Sensitive data – and, more specifically, personal data and PII – is a hot topic. In the wake of GDPR, CCPA, and other recent data privacy regulations, there is a growing need to treat the sensitive data within your organization with as much care as possible, not just to comply with the aforementioned regulations but also to satisfy an increasingly privacy-conscious public. In essence, there are both moral and practical reasons to handle your sensitive data ethically.
But what does this mean in practice? What data qualifies as sensitive and how do you protect it? Most of all, why precisely should you care, at least beyond the bare minimum required by law? It is these questions, and more, that this paper seeks to answer. The paper discusses the last of these questions before moving onwards to address the former since it will be easier to describe what you need to do if we’ve already established why you’re doing it.
The whitepaper also highlights how SOLIXCloud Consumer Data Privacy can help you automate and scale your sensitive data management and stay compliant with regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, and more.
