Strengthen visibility into the status of your privacy compliance program, assessment efforts, and the overall compliance profile through predefined, real-time reports, user-specific dashboards, and graphical snapshots. Gain real-time view of risks through powerful, configurable reports, risk heat maps, and risk quantification.
Streamline Compliance Environment
Create and maintain a central structure of the compliance hierarchy, including regulations, processes, assets, risks, controls, and audits. Streamline the process of creating policies and procedures for privacy compliance, as well as managing reviews and approvals, communicating the policies to employees and third parties, and capturing attestations and exceptions. Assign tasks, controls to stakeholders and monitor for progress and gaps. Map privacy controls to regulations and policies, enabling an integrated approach to ongoing privacy and compliance activities.
Enhance Data Protection Impact Assessments and Risk Management
Identify and assess the risks of data processing activities through systematic, automated Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA)s. Design DPIA surveys, assign them to data controllers, and tabulate the results with configurable scoring algorithms. Strengthen visibility into IT assets and infrastructure elements that store personal data. Identify, assess, quantify, and monitor the risks to this data through an inbuilt IT risk assessment framework.
Simplify Data Privacy Audit Management
Streamline and automate audits to evaluate the effectiveness of privacy controls and processes. Simplify audit planning and scheduling, create audit tasks, manage work papers, and record audit findings. Generate audit reports such as a statement of applicability of controls and a risk-prioritized remediation plan for non-compliant areas.
AI-Powered Intelligent Issue and Remediation Management
Trigger a systematic process to document and resolve issues that arise from DPIA assessments. Leverage AI/ML to quickly identify issues based on relation and recommend issue classification. Create remediation action plans and route them to reviewers for approval. Send out automated alerts to ensure that issue and remediation task assignments are on track.
Optimize Case and Incident Management

Contain Third-Party Risks and Ensure Business Continuity
Ensure operational and business resilience by assessing and monitoring third parties and connected risks in line with privacy requirements. Automatically trigger risk and control assessments to third-party data processors to identify areas of high-risk exposure and use these and overall insights to proactively plan crisis responses to possible data breaches and test recovery plans. If a breach occurs, enable a systematic approach to log, track, investigate, report, and resolve the incident.
