The GDPR grants data subjects the ability to exercise individual rights that organizations must properly address for valid requests. Included in these rights is the:

  • Right to Access (article 15)
  • Right to Erasure (article 20)
  • Right to Restriction of Processing (article 18)
  • Right of Data Portability (article 20)

Challenges of Processing Data Subject Requests

For many businesses, enterprise especially, managing data subject rights is challenging given complexities associated with processing requests. Commonly encountered issues include:

  • Identifying all personal data collected from data subjects
  • Locating everywhere data subjects’ personal data is stored
  • Fulfilling requests within the period defined in the GDPR
  • Processing multiple rights requests concurrently

Penalties for Violating Data Subject Rights

Failure to properly satisfy valid data subject requests can result in hefty fines for an organization. Infringement on data subject rights triggers upper-level penalties that include administrative fines up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater). Also, individuals may claim compensation from the business for any damages suffered due to a violation of their data subject rights.

Given the processing challenges and violation penalties, enterprise businesses that are subject to GDPR law require efficient and reliable solutions in order to safeguard their entire organization from mishandling data subject rights requests.
