Xcina Case Study

Data Mapping and Data Security Review for Global Asset Management Company

The client

Top 20 Global Asset Management Company

The work

Xcina Consulting was approached by a large, global asset management company to help them understand the data protection compliance position within their complex operating environment. The work was broken down into two work streams, namely a data mapping exercise and a data security review. The data mapping exercise included identifying:
  • All the jurisdictions in which the client operates.
  • Primary, secondary and tertiary sites.
  • Key systems / applications (including those that are cloud-based).
  • Types of personal data processed by each business unit.
  • Significant legislation and regulation pertinent to data protection in each country.
The data security review focused on:
  • Aspects of IT security.
  • Third party management.
  • Governance related to data protection policies, procedures, controls and measures.
  • Backup, storage, restore and disposal of personal data.

How we helped

We identified multiple control gaps and provided prioritised recommendations for improvement. Additionally, we provided the insight to help our client understand how the EU General Data Protection Regulation would impact them globally.

Value added

As a result of the data mapping and data security review, it was deemed that our client would benefit from the implementation of a robust Data Protection framework, which we also led.
