Information Mapping Tool (27/06/2008)

The IG Toolkit contains an Information Mapping Tool to assist organisations to map their flows of personal identifiable data and enable them to provide assurance that flows are secure. The Tool provides automated and manual mechanisms for mapping data flows and for assessing risks in existing practices.

Access to the Information Mapping Tool is only available via the Information Governance Toolkit (IGT) Administrators in each organisation, who should determine and set up users of the tool. Organisations, through their IGT Administrators, can allocate as many users as they wish to carry out the data mapping by assigning them the Information Mapping User role.

Once login information has been received, users should log-in to the Information Governance Toolkit and scroll down the menu on the right hand side and select "Information Mapping". Users are advised to read the guidance materials before they start, as this includes a step-by step guide to using the tool as well as general guidance, FAQs and other supporting materials. The following guidance was published in January 2008 to assist organisations to plan information mapping implementation projects: Project Implementation Plan.doc
