The GDPR sparked a number of countries and regions across the globe to update or create new privacy regulations. While new regulations provide organisations the opportunity to build customer trust, they can also be a complex compliance challenge for privacy teams. As the world’s most widely used dedicated privacy management technology platform, OneTrust is committed to providing customers a holistic platform to understand and comply with the various data protection regulations across the globe.

OneTrust Global Readiness and Accountability maps together a number of global privacy laws and security frameworks, including the GPDR, Brazil’s new general data protection law (LGPD), the Australia Privacy Act, the California Consumer Privacy Act and ISO 27001. The OneTrust Global Readiness and Accountability tool includes individual templates, as well as the ability to customise a global readiness assessment for benchmarking against multiple laws and frameworks within a single assessment. Backed by Privacypedia, OneTrust’s new database of global privacy regulations, research, guidance and templates, the OneTrust Global Readiness and Accountability tool is fully customisable and gives customers a holistic understanding of their compliance readiness.

“The GDPR ignited regions and countries across the globe to reassess their own privacy regulations, and organisations now are required to comply with a growing matrix of data protection laws,” said Kabir Barday, OneTrust CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP). “OneTrust’s Global Readiness and Accountability tool helps manage this complexity. With a single tool, customers get a holistic view of their organisational processes and procedures, identify gaps and manage their privacy programme and a global scale. Add Privacypedia by OneTrust to this tool and our customers are equipped with the most comprehensive resource available for managing global privacy readiness.”

OneTrust Global Readiness and Accountability tool will be available in Q4 2018.
