Unstructured Data – A Blind Spot for GDPR Compliance

GDPR will apply to all types of systems where personal data resides. That goes beyond traditional database, CRM or Identity Management systems: Emails, spreadsheets and text documents, PDFs and images, web pages and data collected from social media are only a few examples, and they are everywhere in the organization. All of this might and will contain PII (personally identifiable information), including systems like Microsoft Exchange, Office365, SharePoint, Skype, OneDrive, local folders or IMAP-accounts. Achieving compliance requires an adequate approach for data governance, but many organizations do not have a data governance program in place. Applying data governance to unstructured data is an even bigger challenge, as technologies are not prepared to handle the data-centric approach to the upcoming EU regulation.
