Under the GDPR, data subjects have the right to request access to the personal data processed or collected about them by an organisation. This request is known as a data subject access request or DSAR.
Collating relevant information to respond to DSARs can be challenging and time consuming, particularly as the requestor’s identity must be verified, data should be screened and third-party consent may need to be obtained.

With Brexit looming large and COVID-19 creating new challenges and opportunities for privacy professionals, our GRCI Law’s data protection experts answer burning privacy questions in this panel discussion and Q&A session as they discuss the key privacy challenges organisations face in 2020.
The panel consists of specialists in data privacy and GDPR compliance who have vast experience managing data subject access requests, data breach reporting, the DPO’s role and responsibilities, EU data transfers, contractual rights and general GDPR/DPA compliance.
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.
