With more than 1,000 companies now using TRUSTe Assessment Manager to assess and manage privacy compliance risk, TRUSTe announced today that version 3.0 of the award-winning solution is now available. The Assessment Manager 3.0 release introduces a host of new features including support for TRUSTe managed assessments, increased collaboration, enhanced reporting, an expanded privacy template library, and streamlined project workflow. The new features enable businesses of all sizes and privacy maturity to address emerging privacy challenges including Privacy Shield, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and vendor risk.
Marcus Morissette, eBay Global Privacy Officer and Privacy Counsel said: “eBay is dedicated to meeting the privacy expectations of both our employees and consumers. We know that the privacy landscape is a fast-moving one which is why we selected TRUSTe Assessment Manager as the foundation of our enterprise PIA process to stay ahead of business change and meet the needs of the EU GDPR. TRUSTe has one of the most advanced PIA solutions on the market – it’s specifically built for privacy teams. We’re excited about the organizational awareness Assessment Manager is creating and the continued evolution of the solution.”
Launched in March 2015, Assessment Manager is a SaaS technology solution and part of the comprehensive TRUSTe Data Privacy Management Platform, providing privacy professionals with solutions to manage all phases of their privacy program, from assessing risk to remediating gaps, to ongoing monitoring and compliance reporting.
Assessment Manager 3.0 supports new TRUSTe managed assessment delivery options in addition to the standard self-service option, providing additional flexibility for organizations who want guidance managing their assessments. The managed assessment option combines the powerful, easy-to-use Assessment Manager technology with the TRUSTe team of privacy experts and proven methodology to deliver a solution that can be tailored to meet any client need. The option has proven attractive to smaller organizations who don’t have the resources to staff a privacy team as well as larger organizations who need help jumpstarting their program.
Sean Cohen, COO of AWeber said, “We develop and run web-based tools that help businesses grow by staying in touch with customers and prospects through opt-in email. Aligning with the requirements of Privacy Shield is critical for our business which is why we’ve worked with TRUSTe to prepare for our filing. As champions of smarter and more efficient ways to exchange information, we appreciate how Assessment Manager was able to enhance the assessment experience and streamline our communication with our Privacy Solutions Manager.”
Assessment Manager is being used by companies across a range of industries, including Tech, Pharma, CPG, Healthcare, Oil and Gas, Insurance, and many more. A sampling of clients includes ADT, eBay, Merck, Rackspace, Transport for London and Xiaomi.
Assessment Manager 3.0 is available today starting at $1,000 per month. For more information visit truste.com/assessment-manager or call 888- 878-7830.
