As more and more consumers around the globe are demanding from companies that their personally identifiable information be protected or deleted, it is imperative that this data can be reliably and easily identified and redacted when producing documents in litigation matters when such data is present. In addition to the GDPR and CCPA laws that are currently in place, there are at least 20 additional states that are considering similar legislation.
Whether for e-discovery, data security, or information governance purposes, organizations have been conducting data mapping exercises for many years. This work has resulted in increased visibility and transparency into where data exists within the organization and what that data includes. This will greatly aid companies as they strive to become compliant with the various data privacy regulations.
This project will be designed to identify the “best practices” for the identification of PII in data sets which are collected for litigation matters, as well as developing workflows to ensure that documents which are produced have been redacted of the required sensitive data.
