The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced with a simple idea—organizations have to ensure that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions, and those who collect and manage it will be obliged to protect it from misuse and exploitation—and still, predicaments lingered for organizations trying to comply. One such problem was meeting the operational requirements for which companies had to overhaul their internal processes and record keeping, and how they tackled compliance. They not only had to update legal documents and policies but also needed to implement tools and procedures to meet the obligations of the GDPR such as data protection by design and default. By automating privacy impact assessments and data mapping, identifying privacy risks, and enforcing risk management activities in an integrated platform, a the global leader in privacy management and marketing compliance, OneTrust, is assisting global companies in mitigating these challenges. “We have built a comprehensive privacy management software platform that allows an organization to implement all the operational GDPR requirements,” says Kabir Barday, the CEO of OneTrust. In addition, the platform also automatically generates the record keeping that a company needs to demonstrate the compliance; this propels OneTrust as one of the largest and most widely used tools in the industry for GDPR compliance.
OneTrust offers its solution in two parts.
In the first part, they concentrate upon the internal processes that organizations need to comply with GDPR, which Barday calls, “the internal privacy management tools” such as privacy impact assessments, data protection impact assessments, data mapping and vendor risk management. OneTrust takes a holistic approach to help companies understand the data that they capture, and then organize the details about the data in a centralized repository. Next, the details are prioritized based on the risk associated with it and analyzed to comprehend and remediate the associated privacy risk. The customers are then assisted in communicating their privacy responsibilities to their end users and customers in a transparent manner.

In the second part, OneTrust focuses on the external or marketing compliance tools, including consent management, subject right requests portals, website scanning and cookie consent banners, which are leveraged by businesses to collect and manage user consent for marketing purposes. Through this comprehensive process, OneTrust helps companies in meeting GDPR requirements seamlessly.
What really makes OneTrust a trusted and go-to partner for meeting the GDPR obligation is its state-of-the-art technology, world-class privacy research built into the tools, certified privacy professionals, global delivery, and PrivacyConnect—its large active user community. Barday mentions, “Tens of thousands of websites have deployed our website compliance tool. The list goes on when we consider the other tools that we provide.” What puts the cherry on top of this proverbial cake is the flexibility that OneTrust provides for its clients to choose a cloud or on-premises solution. Further, the clients can also fully containerize the data in a EU cloud environment. “We follow a mature methodology that takes clients through each step involved in the implementation process, and provide them with development guidance as well,” adds Barday. OneTrust has also launched a certification program where customers are guided to become experts in handling the compliance issues.
Having emerged as one of the most popular solutions, OneTrust aims to cover GDPR, ePrivacy, and other global regulations completely by delivering an integrated solution. The firm will also address a broader ecosystem, which will consist of SMBs and large organizations. “We aim to continue on the path of our extensive growth by providing an easy-to-use and comprehensive compliance system,” concludes Barday.
