The GDPR has significantly transformed the global data protection landscape.
The Regulation gives EU residents more power over their privacy and personal data, and places stricter controls on the organisations that handle this data.
Compliance with the GDPR isn’t optional. Failure to comply can result in hefty regulatory fines of €20 million or up to 4% of annual global turnover (whichever is greater). With data breaches on the rise, now is the time to kick-start your GDPR compliance project.

Managing data subject access requests (DSAR) in a timely and cost-effective manner
The enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 eliminated the cost barrier (in most cases) for an individual to submit a data subject access request (DSAR), increasing the burden on organisations to provide their customers with their records in a shorter amount of time at no cost.
Therefore, handling DSARs in line with the GDPR’s requirements and ensuring that there is suitable evidence of processing a request can be a challenge for most organisations.
DSARs are becoming increasingly common, and failure to respond can lead to the data subject making a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which could result in serious fines and sanctions.
Delivered by IT Governance’s sister company GRCI Law, Head of DPO DSAR and Breach Support John Potts will provide organisations with insights into taking a practical, efficient and cost-effective approach to handling DSARs.
This webinar will cover:
- An introduction to DSARs;
- The challenges faced by organisations when handling DSARs;
- How to simplify the processing of DSARs; and
- The practical steps to manage DSARs in compliance with the GDPR.
