Assessment Manager

TrustArc Assessment Manager

Prepare for the GDPR and reduce privacy compliance risk with PIA / DPIA automation.

Conducting compliance and risk assessments is an established best practice for privacy and data protection. Moreover, if you are subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), conducting PIAs (or DPIAs) is also a requirement. In order to manage the growing volume of privacy assessments and ongoing reporting requirements, you need a solution to automate and operationalize your processes.
