TrueVault Atlas is a new solution that has been developed to help organizations manage and automate daily GDPR tasks to ease the GDPR compliance burden.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced a wide range of requirements to improve privacy and security of the ‘personal data’ of citizens of the European Union and European Economic Area. GDPR applies to all entities that collect or process the personal data of EU citizens, not only those based in the EU.
GDPR afforded certain rights to EU citizens to give them greater control over their personal data, such as the right to see what data has been collected on them and the right to stop the processing of all of their personal data and have that information erased.
Compliance with GDPR comes with a significant administrative burden, which TrueVault’s new solution, TrueVault Atlas, was developed to ease by automating the management of personal data and data access/erasure requests.
TrueVault Atlas creates an inventory of all GDPR-covered personal data across an organization’s internal and third-party systems – Salesforce, Google Drive, and PostgreSQL for example. TrueVault Atlas automatically recognizes personal data in natural language and structured data formats, and lets users know where the personal data of EU citizens is stored at all times.
When a request is received from an EU citizen who wants to see the personal data that an organization has collected or is processing or the right to be forgotten is exercised, since all locations of personal data are known, the requests can be processed automatically and satisfied in the shortest possible time frame. The solution also sends administrators alerts to keep them up to date on all data processing activities, compliance checks are performed, and alerts are issued if personal data is discovered in a location where it should not be stored.
The solution helps ensure compliance with GDPR while saving organizations considerable time and money processing day-to-day GDPR requests.
