The LGPD grants many new privacy rights to Brazilian data subjects and requires organizations that process personal data to meet data protection obligations. Similar to the GDPR or CCPA, complying with the LGPD typically requires major operational and technological updates and changes.

To assist Brazil customers navigating these complexities, OneTrust has expanded operations, support, and service in Brazil including:

  • Expanded Privacy, GRC and Data Discovery Capabilities: OneTrust integrated recent Brazil DPA and government guidance into the platform to support compliance efforts.
    • This includes templates for evaluating web application security design and controls, Privacy by Design, and a checklist for benchmarking appropriate organizational security and privacy controls.
    • OneTrust GRC also now supports control libraries for the ISO 27001/ISO 27701 standards, in Brazilian Portuguese.
    • OneTrust’s Data Discovery capabilities also include improved performance for quality of processing and understanding of Brazilian Portuguese data.
  • Dedicated Local Team: OneTrust’s presence in São Paulo gives customers access to local sales, engineer, and support resources. Over 50 employees are dedicated to serving mid-market customers, as well as enterprise and public sector customers.
  • Brazilian Portuguese Language Virtual Events: Virtually connect with local privacy and security experts during a free, online LGPDConnect   To date, OneTrust has hosted 10+ and will be adding more events to the schedule throughout the year. Organizations are also encouraged to watch OneTrust webinars hosted in Portuguese.
