Comprehensive and Expansive Privacy Management

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most comprehensive and expansive data privacy legislation ever created. The risks of non-compliance are significant. Even a single violation could potentially put an organization at risk, both financially and reputationally. And while these legislations provide specific guidance about what needs to be done, many organizations are struggling with how to do it.

HaystackID helps global organizations plan and deploy privacy management solutions to ensure that personal data is protected in a manner that is efficient and legally compliant.

Managing Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs)

The GDPR has ushered in a number of new legal challenges for corporations. Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) are one of the more significant requirements to emerge. The fundamental right of an employee to access or delete one’s personal data has upended the traditional ownership dynamic that was once the exclusive domain of enterprises.

Fulfilling a DSAR request can be complex. Employees often generate significant amounts of personal data which, as part of a DSAR, will need to be collected, reviewed and processed before a company can respond. Having a streamlined process in place is critical in completing these requests within the short deadlines required and at a reasonable and predictable cost.

HaystackID offers efficient, predictable programs to manage and fulfill subject access requests across an enterprise’s global footprint.
