Data Breach Reporting
Step 2: Assessing the affected data
When reporting a breach to the Tietosuojavaltuutetun Toimisto (Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman), an organisation will need to be able to detail the number of personal data records affected, as well as how many data subjects are possibly affected.
To adequately report a breach, you first need to know what personal data you hold, as well as how and where it is stored. If you do not know these things, it will be much harder to assess the scope and impact of data breaches.
Mapping the data flows within your organisation will give you a complete understanding of all the personal data you process, as well as where and how you transfer it.
