Handling a subject access request is resource intensive. Contact us to discuss how we can resolve your SAR headaches!
Subject Access Requests (SARs) are a cornerstone of Data Protection Law and as soon as you receive one, the clock starts ticking as you have only one month to respond. Handling SARs is resource-intensive, and it requires specialist training and software. Outsourcing the application of redaction and exemptions makes commercial sense – which is why DPP set up our SAR Redaction Service.
The process for handling a subject access request is straightforward enough – the time-consuming element is reviewing all of the information found through the information search. It is not uncommon for this to comprise thousands of emails, voice recordings, CCTV footage, images, logos, and other documents in a variety of formats.
Your legal duty is to review all this information and remove (redact) all references to other people. You might also want to withhold some information through the application of one of the many exemptions to disclosure. This process can take a very long time and is where organisations are finding that Data Protection People’s subject access request support service can help them.
Applying SARs redactions is boring work. It needs high levels of concentration and focus and no interruptions. Redaction fatigue sets in after only a few hours. It is the kind of work best done by people with an eye for detail and a passion for redaction who do this work by choice day-in and day-out. That’s where we can help.
Our SAR task force uses our tried and trusted work methods to accurately, quickly and methodically work through redacting your information. There are SAR subject matter experts working within a team of data protection experts. They know what they are looking for and assuredly apply any necessary-redactions and exemptions within the framework of UK law. Our audit trail and quality assurance procedures give you peace of mind that the work we do for you will stand up to scrutiny.
We are specialists in Data Protection and Information Security, our team has decades of practical experience and a proven track record of identifying and mitigating risk so you can be sure you are in the safest hands.
