Practical Solutions for GDPR Compliance

The GDPR introduced a right for individuals to request access to their personal data “easily and at reasonable intervals”. In practice, these Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) can be made with consummate ease by individuals: they can be done electronically and without charge. This has led to swathes of requests being made on organisations and they can be cumbersome to deal with. Some of the most obvious problems include:

  • Locating all the relevant data, often amongst multiple data sources;
  • Isolating data pertaining only to the requestor. Individuals’ data can frequently be found amongst other, non-disclosable information (think of spreadsheets containing employees’ names or lists of purchases);
  • Searching for and redacting sensitive information;
  • The resources required to review the data. This burden can fall on various groups of people, including Human Resources, in-house legal teams, or outside counsel;
  • Producing the relevant data to the individual;
  • Discharging one’s responsibilities within a tight timeframe (one month).
