Configuring Subject Access Request for GDPR Compliance

Overview

Organizations collect information from individuals in connection to their business operations. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a framework that enforces rules over how the personal information of individuals should be processed and used in transactions that occur within EU member states.

In the context of GDPR, these individuals are referred to as Data Subjects. Data subjects are identifiable individuals using common identifiers, such as name, location, or ID numbers.

A Subject Access Request (SAR) is a data subject’s right to access their information, which is held by an organization. The right to access includes being aware of how personal data is being processed, accessing their data, and any supplementary information that is related to the usage of personal data.

You can create a Subject Access Request from the Salesforce App to raise requests related to your backup data. The following workflows to ensure GDPR compliance are available from the Salesforce App.

Subject Access Request Description
Forget - Right to Erasure Delete records from your backup files.
Change - Rectification Edit or rectify records to address any inaccurate data from your backup files.
Export - Data Portability Export records from your backup files in a structured format.
