Data management and data protection: why one doesn't work without the other

Datenmanagement und Datenschutz

In the era of digitalisation, in which companies have access to an unprecedented volume and variety of data, data protection is increasingly becoming a critical issue. At the same time, effective data management is becoming a fundamental requirement for data protection. In this article, we explore why data management is so important for data protection and how ableX can help.

Why is data management so important for data protection?

1. Control over data assets: One of the main objectives of data protection is to ensure that personal data is properly managed and protected. Effective data management helps to maintain a clear overview of what data is stored where and how it is used.

2. Legal compliance: With laws such as the GDPR in the EU and other data protection regulations around the world, organisations need to ensure that they comply with legal requirements. Good data management is essential to provide evidence of compliance with these regulations.

3. Minimisation of data: Data protection principles require the minimisation of data processing. Data management helps to collect and store only the data that is really necessary for the intended purpose.

4. Recognising and mitigating security risks: Proper data management makes it easier for companies to identify security gaps and take measures to prevent data leaks and other security risks.
