GDPR & Unstructured Data Compliance

GDPR…Do You Have A Solution To Help Manage Your Unstructured  Data Compliance?  

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Effective from 25th May 2018, one of the challenges is knowing where personal data is held.  For many organisations personal data will be stored in both structured databases and unstructured data-sources such as excel, csv files, emails and so on.

Unstructured data-sources provide a very real challenge to manage and govern.

IBM StoredIQ enables organisations to discover, recognise, and act on Unstructured Data without moving it to a repository or specialty

More about Unstructured Data:

Most organisations manage their structured data effectively. This is the data that fits neatly into the rows and columns of a relational database and is managed by your Company’s enterprise applications, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM) along with other Systems.

However, the same cannot be said  for your Company’s Unstructured information – documents, images, rich media; other content assets that reside across your company’s enterprise content management, collaboration  and email systems; on network drives and users’ computers; and in enterprise application document stores, whether on-premise or in the cloud.


 …Unstructured information accounts for about 90% of enterprise information, and many organisations lack the processes and systems required to effectively manage this information throughout its life cycle…  …Minimise the risks associated with over-retention or the use of information that contains confidential or personally identifiable data….
