Redaction for DSARs: What You Need to Know

Resource Privacy Rights

Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) are becoming increasingly common, especially in the context of employees, former employees, and customers. It is important to understand when it is necessary to fully redact other people’s sensitive information from files before fulfilling requests, and how to ensure the files are adequately reviewed. 


Watch as OneTrust experts, Linda Thielová – Head of Privacy and Rama Veeraragoo – Data Redaction offering specialist, discuss the many types of DSARs and how the OneTrust Data Redaction tool can help. 


Key Takeaways include:

  • Understanding the DSAR scenarios that may require redaction, such as an employee dispute or an incident separate from standard privacy DSARs 
  • How to anticipate potential legal concerns when redacting sensitive information 
  • Steps to take in understanding the context of DSARs and how to frame the scope of the search so it is useful and efficient 
  • Interpreting requests to properly identify what information needs to be searched for and redacted
