Data Subject Rights testing from DQM GRC

DSAR Process & Response Testing

A bespoke programme of tests that reveal how well your organisation can cope with a data subject access request

Change of Data Request Testing

Individuals may request an amendment or change to their data - but does it make it through your systems, and how long does it take?

Right to Erasure Request Testing

How well is a "right to be forgotten" executed? How does the organisation respond and when?

Right to Object Request Testing

Many processes rely on legitimate interest so how well do you cope with a request to opt-out or cease?

Product Detail

You may have your DSAR and other data subject rights processes in place but do you know how well they really work? Our DSAR Testing Service helps you fix any failures before the worst happens

Individuals now have a range of new or strengthened data rights which they can apply to organisations who may processes data about them. Penalties for failing to handle these correctly can be at the maximum allowed, so it is essential that organisations not only have robust and well defined processes for managing these requests but that these processes are then tested periodically to ensure they are being applied correctly.

Our testing services will help you answer questions like these:

  • If requested can we collate the required information from across the organisation to respond to data subject rights requests within the GDPR timescales?
  • Do we provide all the information that is required under the law?
  • Requests may not be obvious so are our staff trained sufficiently to recognise one and follow the process?
  • Have we put in place and trained our staff on appropriate levels of identity confirmation?
  • Have we defined when it is acceptable to refuse a request and put in place reporting to monitor such requests?

You’ll sleep easy understanding just how well these processes are working and how they might need to be improved.
