FTI Consulting understands the challenges organizations face when identifying and mapping their data landscape to understand the types and sources of data that exist across its ecosystem. This effort can become convoluted due to historical mergers and acquisitions, technology migrations, siloed business units, employee turnover and lack of reliable documentation. We work with clients to bring organization and clarity to the process through data discovery and data classification.
Increasing and ever-changing data privacy and data security regulations as well as the exponential growth in the volume of data produced can make it difficult to understand where data exists across an organization. Maintaining an evergreen map of the data and applications used by a company creates the foundation that enables Privacy, Governance and Information Security’s critical functions. Scanning tools are often used to simplify the process of keeping the map updated by enriching data through scan findings. The process of standing up the data map, implementing scanning technology, and determining lineage between data sources can be an extremely manual and time-consuming process. We have developed solutions for clients that automate these processes and unlock the benefits of data identification and classification while not being burdened with hiring additional employees to manage the process.
