Complex Regulatory Environment


Complex Regulatory Environment

The Challenge

The implementation of new regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States has required government agencies to update policies and procedures to ensure compliance, a complex and resource-intensive activity.

Navigating complex regulatory frameworks and compliance requirements is a time-consuming and resource-intensive task for government agencies. This often requires significant allocation of budgets and person power to ensure adherence to strict regulatory standards.

The Solution

Capsifi helps by providing a clear line of sight across relevant legislation and policies, the organizational controls that enforce them, the operating model and any initiatives for change. In this way, evidence of compliance becomes incidental, alleviating what is traditionally a resource-intensive and error-prone activity.

So, with Capsifi, regulatory frameworks become another lens through which the operating model can be assessed and the cost of implementing those compliance frameworks ascertained
From a data viewpoint, information objects are categorized to ascertain their risk level, allowing tracking across systems, processes, and roles involved in data handling, ensuring a transparent and indisputable data risk lineage.

Here’s some practical ways the Capsifi platform can address and resolve these industry-wide challenges:

  • Establish a clear line of sight from legislation and policy to controls, business rules, and operating model elements
  • Establish a clear line of sight from legislation and policy to controls, initiatives, or projects, and epics (including costs)
  • Use data object risk classification based on various risk frameworks, with calculated attributes used to deduce the risk associated with operating model elements handling that data
