A keystone of a company’s privacy program is the ability to mitigate and find risk in their data operations. Assessments are a useful tool, and a privacy requirement, for systematically analyzing, identifying and minimizing the data protection risks of a specific data system, project, or plan. It is a key requirement of GDPR and upcoming US state regulations, and will help you demonstrate compliance with data protection obligations. Assessments in Transcend will allow you to operationalize your assessments process as well as integrate it directly into your Data Inventory & ROPA. We’ll take you through the lifecycle of an Assessment, from creating a document template, to approving a finalized assessment.

You can find the Assessments feature in the sidebar navigation of Transcend’s Admin Dashboard.
