Tackle a DSAR with data protection experts on your side.
GDPR gives individuals rights surrounding how their personal information is processed by businesses. One of those rights is “the right of access” or “subject access” which allows a member of the public such as a customer, employee or supplier to ask a business about what data they hold on them.
This is a data subject access request (or DSAR). DSARs are nuanced and complex, often requiring a little finesse to navigate.
A business must respond within one calendar month from the day of receipt of the data request. Time is of the essence to remain compliant.
Do your staff know how to respond to a DSAR? Do they know where and how they should look for the data that has been requested?
