The Journey of DSAR with GovernID

Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR)/Subject Rigths Requests (SRR), are both rights given to the individuals in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These are not so much a challenge but rather an opportunity for the organizations to build and strengthen customer trust if the process is effectively dealt with.

GID-O automation technology enables organizations to respond to DSAR/SRR applications on time and with accuracy. In fact DSAR/SRRs or any personal data request in other legal frameworks, have become a leverage to enhance the organization’s transparency and create an empowering relationship with the customers.

Time matters, save resources!

Upon receiving a DSAR/SRR, a company needs to give a complete rundown of a person’s data.

This response should contain all kinds of details such as: Exactly what data they have, when it was collected, which privacy notice(s) was used for their collection, retention period and to what extent the individual allowed the company to use the data.

It can take 12-14 days for your company to manually gather an individual’s personal data across all departments. Each request creates a substantial financial burden and takes up hours of your employees’ work hours. Along with loss of time and resources, if the response does not cover all the data and details, the organization can face the risk of legal sanctions.

With GID-O, DSAR/SRR applications are no longer a source of concern. The process takes less than one hour and there is no need for inter-departmental interaction to find the personal data in the system. After the DSAR/SRR application, the personal data is presented to the applicant without any delay and deficiency.

Smoother ‘Right of Access’ action

With GDPR in place, customers or employees can now ask to see their data across all departments, and it takes 12 to 14 days to prepare the report – costing businesses between €1,400-1,600, or a fine if they don’t deliver.

Establish privacy-driven trust between you and your customers by putting processes in place that align with their – present and future – needs. GID-O works like a ‘buffer’ between customers and businesses, labelling all data and creating the related reports happens as the data is collected by the company. This prevents companies creating the reports manually by consuming resources, time and money.

No need for separate DSAR/SRR applications, here is GID-O delivery

On top of making a company’s job easier, faster, and risk-free, individuals can directly ask for GID-O to show all their data gathered by a specific company if said company is using GID-O. The individuals can see their personal data and all the details about it easily, a feature that fundamentally creates confidence based on transparency. They get to immediately obtain the information they are looking for regarding their personal data without any need to pursue a legal application process.

No risk of human errors

With GID-O, all data is tagged the moment it is gathered, so compiling a report is as easy as requesting it. The whole process is fast and automated so there is no doubt about making the 30-day deadline or the accuracy of the information shared about the data stored in your company’s database.

In order to meet the ever-evolving privacy standards, it is no longer sufficient to merely comply with legislation and amendments. You’re only a mouse click away from working with our GovernID partners to develop a comprehensive privacy strategy tailored to your company’s unique goals and objectives. BEGIN RIGHT NOW
