GDPR Individual Rights workflow
As part of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25th May 2018, citizens have the right to find out exactly what personal data is being held about them, why it’s being held and who that data is being passed on to. Individuals can gain this information by making a Subject Access Request (SAR).
Organisations are expected to respond quickly and waive any charges they may have once made. As a result, SARs are expected to grow in volume and create an administrative overhead.
GDPR also carries the threat of severe financial penalties for firms found to be in breach, with maximum fines being 20 million Euros, or 4% of the firm’s global turnover – whichever is higher.

Who will need this?
The requirement to be compliant with GDPR and Subject Access Requests is applicable to all organisations. Most businesses and especially those that deal with individual end-customers will hold vast amounts of personal data. Knowing what data is held, where it’s stored, why it’s stored and who it’s being passed on to – then producing this information promptly is crucial to any firm looking to avoid fines and remain compliant.
