Data Subject Access Request

Definition: A Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) is a request from a data subject, e.g. a former employee, to be provided with a copy of the personal data being processed by a data controller and an explanation of the purposes for which the stored personal data is being used.

Every company stores personal data. Without suitable software, the effort required for reporting on that data can be business-threatening.

The GDPR imposes exorbitant fines if required reports can not be produced within days. However, in an age of exponentially growing data volumes, diverse information silos, and a wide variety of data protection models, it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the legal requirements.

1 Month

Whenever an individual files a legitimate request, data controllers must reply to the data subject within one month - carefully redacting out information that cannot be shared, such as other people’s PII.


The GDPR sets exorbitant fines of up to $24 million or 4% of the total worldwide turnover of the preceding financial year - whichever is higher - for infringements.


The cost per request starts at $200 and can run into the hundreds of thousands. The main cost drivers are verification, diverse technology, data volume and blurred requirements.
