A core requirement of both the GDPR and the similar California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is the ability to demonstrate and prove that personal data is being protected, which requires information governance capabilities that allow companies to efficiently identify and remediate personal data of EU and California residents.

Whilst it may be challenging, you should make extensive efforts to find and retrieve the requested information.”

However, recent Gartner research notes that approximately 80% of information stored by companies is “dark data” that is in the form of unstructured, distributed data that can pose significant legal and operational risks.
