Privacy Management Applications


Privacy management

Privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA require new processes for handling personal data. These include records of processing activity, data flow mappings, processing notices, data-subject access requests, breach notifications and data protection impact assessments. The regulations also require a risk-based approach to compliance. STREAM’s Privacy Management application can help your organization address these challenges.
