Data Governance and Vendor Monitoring


Using a travel search engine like KAYAK involves the sharing of personal data like names, contact information, and payment details. This makes it essential for organizations and individuals to understand KAYAK's data governance and to monitor the vendor's practices. This includes understanding how KAYAK collects, processes, and stores user data, and how they ensure the security of such data. Regularly monitoring KAYAK as a vendor can ensure compliance with relevant data protection regulations and the secure handling of personal information.
