The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been designed to give back control of personal data to the individual while defining a clear set of rules on data protection for European Citizens. It’s not just European based companies that need to take note, all organisations that process personal data of EU citizens must also comply with the regulation.

Data lineage plays a vital role in GDPR by mapping the flow of data within an organisation and allowing for full transparency on how it is used. Solidatus helps to build a digital dashboard demonstrating to managers how personal data is being used, enabling the ‘The Right to Erasure’ and laying the groundwork should the regulators ever ask a business to prove their compliance.

Solidatus for GDPR

Using Solidatus, an organisation has the ability to gain valuable insight into their data landscape. The tool enables an organisation to visualise and analyse lineage to understand what data they hold, what type of data they have and how it moves through their systems.

The Solidatus Data Privacy Module provides a digitised version of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that enables an organisation to directly link regulatory clauses against their processes, the people that interact with them and the data that is generated and utilised by them. The Solidatus Data Privacy Module also allows organisations to track changes in the regulation over time to automatically assess impact of regulatory change.  It also allows businesses to create a common taxonomy of several Data Privacy Regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, etc to allow for simplification of implementation and reuse of regulatory work product. Organisations can additionally compare privacy regulations across several dimensions including, scope, jurisdiction.

Company-wide collaboration

Through its collaborative and crowdsourcing model, Solidatus allows for quick and effective enterprise-wide identification where of personal information is held. Working with all teams across the organisation, a clear understanding can be made of exactly where data is and how it’s being used in business and IT processes.

Visualise and map Metadata

Data flow can be clearly mapped out to visualise each contact point and ownership can then be assigned. Once an organisation has this knowledge they are able to quickly and confidently fulfill a ‘Right to Erasure’ request knowing that they have removed it from every possible place it has been held.

Proactive approach to compliance

Solidatus enables companies to prove to the regulator that they are taking a proactive approach to GDPR by clearly documenting and auditing their data landscape and privacy impact assessment. Solidatus can quickly discover, document and share models, simplifying the process of being compliant.

Demonstrate PIA risk

Solidatus can demonstrate to the regulator how and when Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) were conducted and prove how information is collected, stored, used, deleted and who has access to it. It also clearly shows that data privacy is a key consideration for future change.
