Gartner Practical Privacy — Discovery Automation of Privacy Risk

"Organizations have found discovery to be the critical first step to identify and quantify areas of privacy risk. Security and risk management leaders must segment their approach against the three sources of privacy risk with a focus on actionable outcomes if they are to overcome workload paralysis.

Key Challenges

  • Organizations conducting manual discovery exercises quickly find that the process yields an incomplete, single snapshot in time that is often out of date before the project is over.
  • Discovery exercises are conducted with the intent of finding personal data rather than delivering a privacy risk register, leaving organizations with information that does not readily translate into actionable next steps.
  • Third-party risk assessments for service providers, vendors or M&A targets are conducted from the perspective of business criticality and the impact they would have on business continuity rather than based on privacy risk."
