Data Subject Access Request (DSAR)

Pragmatic and tailored approach to GDPR compliance

Data Subject Access Request (DSAR)

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.

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.

We used URM as we had a large amount of information to redact for a Court of Protection case and neither had the time nor the knowledge to be able to complete this appropriately. URM were suggested to us and we made contact. They responded very quickly and were able to explain their role, estimated timescales & costings. During the initial consultation, they were very professional and approachable, and certainly had the skills we required. URM’s consultant provided us with details of the work they had completed before & we felt confident to pursue the work with them. We were on a tight deadline for court and URM were confident that they could provide the services we required in a timely manner. The logistics of sending a large amount of confidential documents were easy to navigate and straightforward. We were unable to very accurately gauge how much work was required, however URM’s Team supported us with this and maintained regular contact regarding their progress and addressed any concerns they had. When we needed to contact them, they were prompt with their responses. The work did take longer that envisaged, however that was due to the amount of work that we, as clients, were unable to accurately identify would be required. We did, however, meet the deadline for court. I would certainly use the services of URM again & if possible would work with same team. The services are not cheap, however redacting sensitive information is a skilled task and, therefore, having a professional complete this work is priceless.
