Data Classification, Privacy & Protection

As data proliferates across the digital enterprise, confidential and personal data is at risk from ever smarter cyber criminals, states and competitors. Capgemini helps clients to comply with new regulations, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation, and to protect themselves against the financial and reputational damage of data loss or data leaks.

Data protection is a strategic step in the digital transformation journey

As your digital transformation continues, security should be an enabler of competitiveness and change, not an inhibitor. While the threat of a data leak to operational continuity, brand value and customer trust cannot be totally eradicated in this digital landscape, it can be mitigated if handled correctly. It is a strategic and enterprise-wide task involving key businesses and stakeholders, including IT, Security, HR and Legal. Data protection efforts should be consistent with your digital transformation and cybersecurity strategies and focus on both personal and critical data assets.

Your data are your crown jewels

Effective data privacy and protection demand tools and processes to detect and react to a data leak, consistent cybersecurity rules and processes throughout the data lifecycle, awareness and commitment of all stakeholders. Capgemini provides clients with comprehensive data security capabilities, beginning with strategy and roadmap development. We help clients classify data according to its level of sensitivity, and secure the processing of collected data. In defining policies and governance frameworks for enhanced privacy and controls, we set out the roles and organization, along with corresponding IT requirements, to protect data assets (at rest, in motion, in use).

Proven methodologies for keeping data secure

From transport hubs and financial institutions, to retailers and oil & gas companies, we help our clients reinforce their data protection practices based on a clear understanding of the business stakes and issues.

Our recommendations and solutions draw on proven methodologies and practices. As part of a consistent digital transformation program, we developed and implemented a privacy impact assessment workflow for one of Europe’s biggest airports. And we helped a leading ICT services supplier identify, assess and deal with privacy risks as part of EU data breach legislation.
