Compliance with Cross-Border Data Transfers: Scope & Challenges

Cross-border data transfers refer to the movement of data from one country to another, either physically or digitally. The scope of cross-border data transfers can vary widely, depending on the nature of the business and the data being transferred.

Addressing the challenges of data transfers requires a multi-faceted approach, including implementing appropriate data protection measures, cybersecurity protocols, and technical standards.

Identify critical, sensitive, and business data to better manage cross-border transfer risk. Maintain an up-to-date (and accurate) understanding of what data is collected, stored, processed, and may be at risk when transferred to a different region.

Apply residency to data sources and individual data with OOTB policies to monitor & alert on cross-border data transfers. With BigID, organizations can assess, validate, report, and remediate information by data jurisdictions for compliance with data transfer requirements.

Discover, document, and report on data processing activities to assess data assets, locations, third-party sharing, and data transfers. BigID helps organizations automate data flow to map data processing, secure cross-border data transfers, and validate third-party data sharing.

Protect data and maintain compliance with privacy risk assessments (PIA) to evaluate all data transfers. BigID manages privacy risk assessments to estimate the risk associated with data inventory (owner, geography, purpose, stored, used, shared, and maintained) to comply with cross-border transfer requirements.

Reduce risk by managing access to sensitive data, which provides a safeguard to protect personal information during data transfers. Quickly identify overexposed data and overprivileged user access to specific data types based on geolocation and accessibility rights.
