Say hello to the newest member of your team! OneTrust has launched an artificial intelligence and robotic automation engine, OneTrust Athena™. Athena adds AI, machine learning, predictive intelligence, and robotic automation capabilities to the OneTrust platform to enhance your compliance program. Continued compliance with global privacy and security laws and frameworks is no small task, and as regulations develop your compliance program must evolve too. This is where Athena can help take your privacy, security and trust program to the next level.

What Does Athena Bring to Your Team?

OneTrust Athena is built to help maximize efficiency by harnessing the power of AI, machine learning, and robotic process automation. With artificial intelligence, Athena can help discover and classify data, flag risk and suggest remediation actions based on the context of that data, and suggest program improvements to simplify compliance across your business. Athena learns over time by leveraging machine learning models on your data sets, so the more you leverage OneTrust, the smarter she gets. Through the use of robotic process automation, Athena removes manual tasks and repetitive actions like responding to privacy rights requests and conducting vendor audits and can streamline complex workflows and integrations with other compliance technologies.

How Does Athena Work?

OneTrust Athena is intelligent. She draws on OneTrust DataGuidance, the world’s most in-depth source of regulatory and compliance research with same-day support for regulatory updates across the globe. OneTrust DataGuidance monitors updates to laws and regulations, tracks breaches and enforcement actions, and knows all of the latest regulatory guidance. All of this information has been mapped and indexed into a structured, machine-readable format that continuously feeds Athena with insights and intelligence.

She doesn’t stop there! Athena gets smarter as she learns more about your business. Building on both the information that your teams put into OneTrust and the data that she automatically discovers, Athena can learn over time to more accurately classify data, flag risk, and suggest controls contextually based on your business and compliance program.

Finally, Athena never stops working for your business. Simply tell Athena about your processes, workflows, and manual tasks and she’ll automate them, leaving you and your team time to focus on more critical tasks.

What Does This Look Like in Practice?

Athena integrates across the entire OneTrust platform and powers different use cases across the different OneTrust offerings, including OneTrust Privacy, OneTrust Vendorpedia, OneTrust PreferenceChoice, OneTrust GRC and all of the product modules within. At OneTrust, we believe in algorithmic transparency and that AI should be easily explainable and have determinable outcomes that are logical and contextual. So, let’s take a look at a few examples below to demonstrate exactly how Athena helps across the OneTrust Platform:

  • Automate Privacy Rights Requests: Tell Athena which manual tasks are required in fulfilling a request using the drag-and-drop automation builder. When a request is submitted Athena routes them through these pre-defined workflows, meaning no human interaction is required. Athena can verify the identity, flag exceptions, access or action the requestor’s data in other systems, and suggest responses to send to the individual.
  • Intelligently Flag Data Breaches: Athena continually monitors the OneTrust DataGuidance breach and enforcement tracker, an indexed list of all breaches and enforcements across the globe. As Athena is plugged into your OneTrust vendor inventory she knows all your vendors and third-parties, meaning that when a breach is reported by one of your vendors, or even a similar vendor, Athena can create incident records, flag risk, notify your team, and send investigative assessments automatically.
  • Automate DPIAs For High-Risk Processing Activities: Through OneTrust DataGuidance intelligence, Athena knows all the whitelists, blacklists, and guidance on DPIAs. Athena is also plugged into OneTrust Data Mapping, so understands all your processing activities. She can automate data discovery and classification through OneTrust DataDiscovery to know what data is in what systems and how it links to processing activities and vendors. Combining all this knowledge, Athena can accurately predict the inherent risk of processing activities and suggest where DPIAs are required.
  • Suggest Program Improvements: Tell Athena which countries you operate in and which standards and frameworks you use – she can also learn this over time through your data inventories. Athena can reference and de-duplicate the requirements of the hundreds of regulations, standards, and frameworks that OneTrust DataGuidance has mapped in a machine-readable format. Athena can then suggest which initiatives you should prioritize to advance your program’s maturity based on her knowledge of your program and how your use OneTrust, or the information you directly input through the Maturity & Planning interface.
