In this way you create the greatest possible legal security for your company.  
    Data Risk Intelligence
    140 years of experience in risk assessment and risk management, Munich Re has the world’s largest and most comprehensive expert knowhow for the development of high-quality software solutions in this field.

    Easy-touse analysis and workflow tool

    Reduce your risks with the easy-to-use analysis and workflow tool

    Munich Re’s Data Risk Intelligence enables you to considerably simplify and accelerate your data and information protection processes, and at the same time provides you with an analysis that gives you a comprehensive overview not only of the current status of your data and information protection but also your IT risk management.  

    You will even receive this individual analysis automatically in the form of comprehensive documentation in accordance with regulatory requirements, as well as individual recommendations for action to reduce your risks to the greatest possible extent. And all this in only 3 steps.

    And all this in only 3 steps.

    To maximum data protection in just 3 steps

    Munich Re’s Data Risk Intelligence ensures that your company is well prepared for all current and future requirements with regard to data protection regulations and information protection – worldwide, cost-efficient and legally compliant.
    Maximum data protection  in just 3 steps
    1. Process analysis
    By means of a user-friendly, configurable dialogue and workflow system, the software solution classifies the data processed in the business process/procedure step by step, compares the data processing with the applicable legal requirements and documents the processes.
    • A decision-based catalogue of questions for the analysis of personal and nonpersonal data  
    • Structured, individual user guidance through the entire question process  
    • Collaboration throughout by assigning specific “roles”  
    • Checking and processing of crosscompany and cross-country data flows
    2. Risk evaluation
    Based on the data classification, technical and organisational measures (TOMs) which can be individually adapted to the respective needs of your company are proposed automatically. The evaluation of these TOMs identifies vulnerabilities that you can subsequently deal with.
    • Evaluation of the criticality, integrity and availability of data on the basis of the findings of the catalogue of questions  
    • Deduction of legal conclusions as well as appropriate technical and organisational measures (TOMs)  
    • GDPR-compliant data protection  
    • Identification of IT compliance deficiencies and IT security vulnerabilities (GAPS)
    3. Legal documentation
    In the process the software automatically uses the information provided by your company to generate all the legally required documents, such as contract processing, the data deletion concept, a data protection impact assessment and the processing directory.
    • Management of relevant data processing and data privacy information at one place  
    • Audit logging of risk manager approval and management board decisions  
    • Generation of documents in different   formats and versions (with or without TOMs)  
    • Document management – for more extensive documents, too

    Security is good. Eightfold security is even better!

    • Check on third parties involved in the process by identifying relevant controls
    • Evaluation of processes without personal data, but with critical and sensitive data (e.g. contracts or blueprints)
    • Identification of criticality, i.e. the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data types defined for this purpose
    • Identification of vulnerabilities based on specific controls defined for this purpose
    • Creation of a checklist for cybersecurity requirements
    • Review on the basis of a TOM list extended by information security checks
    • Extended documentation and handling of vulnerabilities through involvement and escalation of various stakeholders

    Data Risk Intelligence

    Select the edition that best suits your requirements. And simply extend it whenever you wish

    Thanks to its modular structure you can not only adapt the solution to the individual maturity level of your integrated data protection and IT risk management, but further modules can also be flexibly added to the editions “Enterprise” and “Professional” at any time.  

    The Data Risk Intelligence Platform
    All editions are based on the common Data Risk Intelligence platform. It forms the technical basis and provides the common user interface for all modules – including all those you book at a later date. This means you always have an overview and can operate in your familiar environment.  

    Standard Data Risks Module
    This module groups together all the standard functions of the Data Risk Intelligence solution. From process analysis via risk assessment to documentation (see list on the right for the complete range of functions). Together with the Data Risk Intelligence platform this module forms the Professional Edition.  

    Enterprise Data Risks Module
    In order to optimally integrate the solution into your company’s application landscape, simply choose the Enterprise Edition – this already includes the Enterprise Data Risks module and therefore not only ensures full group capability but also provides an additional comprehensive TOM list.

    Data Breach Module
    This optional module enables you to document data protection violations through initial and follow-up reports, to assess the obligation to report them, and to store them under an incident number for further processing in the system. Also available as stand-alone Data Breach Edition (see list on the right).

    Additional modules
    You can also cover more extensive regulatory requirements with the optional expansion modules, which can be seamlessly integrated into the solution.

    •   Data Subject Rights Module: Offers you the structural documentation and management of enquiries from data subjects.
