1. Understand the data landscape
Working with you and key stakeholders across all territories, we will develop a search strategy to identify relevant data from all sources, including email, network file shares, Customer Relationship Management and HR systems).
We will identify and categorise data using data indexing, analytics and search technologies. We use machine learning techniques to cluster data based on its thematic content, which allows you to pick out sets of data that need to be included (or excluded) from the deal. We carry out sample checks to test whether data is being accurately located, and offer a fully audited review platform that’s accessible to others so the processes used are repeatable and demonstrable to another party.
Using our expertise with structured and unstructured data systems, we will make sure that your data is separated effectively. This may be by migrating the data to another system, by restricting access to specific individuals, or by using technology to redact or de-identify sensitive data. We use a secure portal so that further data transfers, if necessary, can be made safely after the deal has closed.
