Unstructured Data

What data does your business hold and where is it?

Unstructured data is the collective name for the information that your organisation creates, and keeps, to help it carry out its primary tasks, but isn’t in a recognisable structure or contained in a database. On average an organisation holds between 60% – 80% of unstructured data.

Unstructured data will contain PII; names, addresses, date of births, banking details and emails etc. The new GDPR means that organisations need to be able to prove understanding of what data you hold, where it is held and that it is securely managed.

Are you able to process Subject Access Requests?

For the first time the classification of personal data includes anything that can identify an individual, this includes genetic, mental, cultural, economic or social information. As well as needing valid permission to hold and use PII data, organisations also now need to be able to fulfil an individual’s request to be forgotten.

The ‘Right to Erasure’ means customers can request a copy of all data held on them and also request all data held on them to be deleted.
