Data Flow vs. Data Discovery
Data flow mapping highlights storage of sensitive data, the security gaps, and compliance risks. It also maps the data transfers between systems, applications, and storage. This allows identifying who and what processes data at each stage of the workflow. Data flow mapping is a critical element of security & privacy compliance. And, it is a focused asset management mechanism for your compliance needs.
Data discovery is a deeper scan of actual content within all systems. It scans to catalog, classify, and index the data. This enables understand the types of data that exist. Data discovery provides details on sensitive information, associations between data, and how data is structured. It gives visibility into dark data.
A key requirement of security & privacy regulations is accurate and timely disclosures and public notices.
