Discover privacy & security risks

To successfully build a risk management program, first understand not only what data exists, but also its context so you can build policies and controls around how it’s collected, stored, and used. Perform risk-based assessments and generate actionable insights with smarter data.

Data maps

Establish and visualize associations among IT assets, data subjects, business processes, third parties, and jurisdictions.

Data flow

Automated data flow inventories let you find out where data lives and what it’s being used for during its lifecycle.

Record inventory

Establish an inventory of records by creating logs or bulk-import your record details from existing systems, such as ServiceNow, with our connectors.

Automate impact assessments

Automatically assess how individual users or teams collect, store, manage, and dispose of regulated data.

Spot risks early

Identify risks before they become costly fines. Pinpoint where, and how often risk-defined process or system gaps are found.


Quickly understand the state of your compliance, and distribute key security-trimmed insights to executive teams or regulatory bodies.

Define and implement privacy and security policies. Automate breach response.

No need to start from scratch. We make it easy to map organizational policies to common regulatory requirements to monitor and mitigate security and privacy risk. Then, as risks or breaches are identified, implement a workflow-driven response for swift, decisive action.
