Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) Redaction Service

If you’re looking for support in dealing with DSAR redaction URM's knowledgeable and experienced Team is able to apply the appropriate redactions to any documents supplied.

Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) Redaction Service

One of the areas which organisations often struggle with when dealing with DSAR redaction is understanding what legal exemptions are available and, more importantly, can be applied.  Deciding on which elements of a document need to be redacted and where exemptions can be applied is a timely process and one which requires a skilled interpretation of the UK GDPR.

URM can provide such skills through its knowledgeable and experienced Team and is able to apply the appropriate redactions to any documents supplied.  It should be noted that URM delivers a human, rather than an electronic solution, which is strongly believed to be more effective and appropriate.  As guided by the ICO, it’s essential to understand the context of a DSAR and this can only really be achieved where the raw material is read by a human eye.  Following the redaction service, URM is able to package the DSAR together for disclosure.  Furthermore, if required, URM is able to act as your representative with the UK regulator where a DSAR is contested.

URM also delivers a 1 day ‘How to Manage DSARs’ training course which provides clear and practical instruction and guidance on dealing with all aspects of a data subject access request (DSAR).  By attending the course, delegates will learn, amongst other things, how to recognise a DSAR and determine whether its valid or not, how to verify the identity of a data subject, how to deal with exemptions and excessive requests, and how to respond to data subject and complete a DSAR.
