Managing Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR)

Simplify and Accelerate the Fulfillment of Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR)

Understanding Data Subject Rights

A number of data privacy laws, such as the GDPR and CCPA, grant data subjects the ability to exercise individual rights and require organizations to promptly respond to all valid requests. These rights include:

  • Right of Access
  • Right to Erasure
  • Right to Restriction of Processing
  • Right of Data Portability

Challenges of Processing Data Subject Requests

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

  • Locating personal data across all enterprise repositories
  • Identifying all personal data collected from individual data subjects
  • Fulfilling requests within the time period defined by law
  • Processing multiple 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 for any damages suffered due to a violation of their data subject rights.
