Netwrix simplifies DSARs
Organizations concerned about responding to data subject access requests (DSARs) from individuals within the required timeframe can now use the latest version of Netwrix Data Classification (www.netwrix.com/dsar_software.html) from Netwrix.
This updated version enables even non-IT teams to respond to DSARs swiftly, thanks to Netwrix Data Classification’s simple yet secure discovery and collection of personal information. As a result, organizations can balance IT workload while addressing DSARs promptly to reduce the risk of fines and loss of public trust. In addition, Netwrix Data Classification 5.5.3 supports two new data sources, Box and Dropbox, to expand security and compliance in cloud and hybrid IT environments.
“IT departments that are already overworked from work from home initiatives will soon be stressed again as teams head back to office,” says Steve Dickson, CEO at Netwrix (www.netwrix.com).
“Unfortunately, privacy mandates like the GDPR and the CCPA are unrelenting. Even though the GDPR has been in force for two years, organizations are still struggling to process DSARs promptly, as required by the regulation. Penalties for non-compliance are not something any business wants to deal with right now, especially when we are facing a global economic recession.”
“According to a recent Gartner survey, manual processing of a single subject rights request (SRR) for access costs organizations more than $1,400, and a majority of organizations take more than two weeks to provide a response.” – Gartner, Market Guide for Subject Rights Request Automation, by Nader Henein, Bart Willemsen and Bernard Woo, 21 February 2020.
