How can you handle increasing volumes of data subject rights requests?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is all about putting the individual first. Under the GDPR, individuals have rights in relation to any personal data you may be processing about them. As well as potentially triggering difficult legal problems, rights mishandling can damage trust, brand and reputation.

The eight core rights of individuals under the GDPR in relation to their personal data are:

  1. The right to be informed;
  2. The right of access;
  3. The right of rectification;
  4. The right to erasure;
  5. The right to restrict processing;
  6. The right to data portability;
  7. The right to object;
  8. The right not to be subject to automated decision making, including profiling.

Most organisations now provide an email address to which rights requests and general privacy queries can be submitted. Managing these incoming communications well can be a time- and resource-consuming activity.
