OneTrust Enables Enterprises to Meet Breach Compliance Requirements

Download this report to learn how OneTrust has become the chosen solution for enterprises focused on streamlining data breach management and report.


Meet Global Data Breach Notification Requirements

Breach notification laws have matured and are now global and mainstream. These laws are unique in their incident reporting requirements and continue to impose stricter timelines to notify authorities of a breach. In some cases, this window is as little as 24 hours. Given the tightened requirements set forth by these notification laws, organizations need to maintain up-to-data documentation, include more data, and effectively mitigate risk to provide a complete, evidentiary record of precisely what happened to the affected data, and when. Leverage OneTrust’s automated Incident and Breach solution, along with guidance from OneTrust DataGuidance Research Portal, to develop an incident plan that effectively meets breach notification laws and maintains compliance in today’s evolving landscape of data privacy and protection.
