But with different laws and regulations setting additional requirements, privacy compliance is also becoming a complex problem for organizations that collect, process, share, or sell millions of individuals’ personal data. With each jurisdiction varying in the specifics, tasks such as completing a data subjects’ rights request or updating a compliant privacy notice are becoming impossibly difficult for organizations through existing data privacy management models.
These factors make manual compliance with privacy laws expensive and complicated.
These are the disadvantages of manual compliance:
Too many people are needed to manually search data stores for personal data and complete a DSR report: = The organization would require a considerable workforce.
Humans require a lot of time to search data stores for personal data of data subjects manually = Lots of time wasted.
Different global laws have requirements (breach notifications or privacy notices), requiring expensive geo-specific compliance and legal experts = Too much cost.
Strict deadlines within global data privacy laws and regulations coupled with an active enforcement pattern from enforcement authorities and rising consumer concern on data privacy issues = Too much risk.
Different teams’ requirements to participate in data privacy compliance using manual tools can lead to disorganized compliance and risk data sprawl.
Need for a secure collaborative workspace or portal that can streamline compliance activities.
