Since the introduction of the GDPR in 2018 data subjects have exercised their rights in increasing numbers, particularly the Right of Access (Subject Access requests). Find out how you should deal with these requests.  The other rights arise less frequently and will be covered in slightly less depth: right to rectification, right to erasure, right to object, right to restriction, right to data portability and automated decision making.

Do you??

It is essential that all staff can recognise subject access requests and can make an initial response to them, including immediate transmission to the appropriate member of staff. It is also very important to deal with requests in a timely and sympathetic manner as the GDPR has empowered data subjects. Data subjects are often on the warpath, weaponising the rights to make your life difficult – in these cases, they are likely to complain to the ICO or rant about you on social media if they think you haven’t got it right.
