Data Mapping

Understanding how you process personal data within your business is an essential part of demonstrating your accountability towards what you do.

It is called Data Mapping.  Just how complicated it needs to be depends on the complexity of your processing.

The type of processing you might use in your hotel is often simple enough.  What makes it harder to understand is when the personal data moves out through external data processors and back within your own control.  Sometimes these processes are not so easy to interpret.

There are several ways to approach this.  At hotelDPO we make use of everything from simple paper records of data mapping through to industry leading software systems.  It all depends on what you, the client, need to manage your understanding of what’s going on.
