Core to the GDPR is an increased responsibility to have comprehensive insight and control of all your data assets. To do so, you must know what personal data you hold, its provenance, location and all the ways in which it is being used. Without visibility on all data held, it is much harder to respond to the GDPR requirements such as Access, Rectification and Data Portability present in a range of GDPR articles.
