How OneTrust Helps
Create an Actionable Plan with a Readiness Assessment
The GDPR sets out seven key principles which should be at the core of personal data processing. By completing an assessment, you can identify GDPR-related gaps in your privacy program then create a plan to integrate data protection into your processing activities and business practices from the design stage, across the entire data processing lifecycle.
Automate PIA and DPIA Requirements
Conduct PIA and DPIAs where processing operations are likely to result in a high risk to individuals by customizing pre-defined screening questionnaires. Assign follow-up risk mitigation tasks and automatically prompt remediation to users via email notification or a self-service portal.
Automate Data Mapping and Record of Processing Activity (ROPA) Creation
Keep records of your processing activities by generating a central inventory of data flows. Do this through questionnaires, scanning, workshops, or a bulk import while maintaining an evergreen data catalog with automatic feeds from ongoing assessments.
Capture and Enforce Valid Consent
For organizations processing data based on consent, embed a centralized consent solution into your website, devices, and internal systems to capture consent across channels and enforce consent governance in downstream business and marketing systems.
Automate Data Subject Rights (DSAR) Requests
Build and configure web forms to capture privacy rights requests and automate the end-to-end request process from initial intake to fulfillment, including automated data discovery and redaction of sensitive information.
Simplify Third-Party Risk Management
Simplify third-party risk by conducting vendor due diligence on initial onboarding and scheduling re-audits. Send assessment questionnaires directly to the supplier or third party and generate a central record of vendors, including contracts, data transfers, cross-border transfers, and security obligations. Streamline vendor evaluation with pre-completed assessments from the OneTrust Vendor Exchange.
Manage Incident and Breach Response
Improve visibility into incidents to quickly identify what data is affected, how it’s used, who has access, and where it flows. With built-in research and metrics to understand the impact of an incident, centrally manage incidents, streamline investigations, automate tasks, and keep records for compliance and notification.
