GDPR and Alation

Is your data ready for GDPR?

GDPR is initiating sweeping changes to data governance compliance and you’ll need to move quickly to make sure you’re ready.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is scheduled to be enforced on May 25, 2018 and compliance will be challenging. Your existing policies will need to be reevaluated in light of the new regulations. And your organization will have to develop new policies and new ways to enforce them.

But coming up with new policies is the easy part. Once GDPR is implemented, finding the data your organization needs will be critical and understanding how that data is used, accessed, and distributed will be increasingly more difficult.

Alation can help you find your data, better understand usage, and notify data consumers of corrective action. Alation crawls your databases, reports and file systems and analyses logs to provide a data protection solution.

Compared to other manual governance solutions that simply identify protected data, Alation additionally enables you to:

  • find and detect data assets that require protection and control
  • minimize data collection through identification and consolidation of duplicates
  • detect breaches and inappropriate / non-compliant usage
