Regular assessments are essential to a well-run privacy program. When done right, they can unlock compliance insights, guide your evaluations, bolster your protection, and create a paper trail to prove your compliance.
But too often, assessments contribute to data sprawl, go uncompleted, or otherwise slow the pace of business down. Osano gets you started faster and keeps you on track by automating your assessment workflow.
With manual tools like email and spreadsheets, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, let assessments fall through the cracks, and miss deadlines. Osano keeps you organized and on track with a single, secure location for your assessments, from records of processing activities (RoPAs) and data privacy impact assessments (DPIAs) to vendor assessments and more.
Data privacy regulations require or recommend assessments for a variety of circumstances, be it starting a new project or onboarding a new vendor. Speedy assessments make sure personal information is protected without slowing down the business. Blockers like needing to identify the right format, searching for a template, following up on incomplete assessments, or losing an already completed assessment can seriously slow down the process.
Osano Assessments provides ready-to-use templates based on industry standards and lets you quickly see assessment status, such as pending, in progress, and completed. With Osano, you can be faster at vetting projects, initiatives, and vendors for data privacy risk, faster at mitigating identified risks, and faster at supporting your business.
Data privacy regulations require or recommend conducting vendor assessments, developing RoPAs, and carrying out DPIAs at key junctures. With these documents, not only will you gain the key data privacy insights they provide, you’ll also be able to demonstrate your commitment to complying with data privacy regulations, review past trends, and plan to plug gaps in the future.
Osano Assessments provides you access to templates for the most common privacy assessments, basing them on internationally recognized standards, best practices, and regulatory requirements. Whether you need to assess potential or existing vendors, gain insight into the current state of your data processing activities with a RoPA, or evaluate the privacy risk of new projects and initiatives with a DPIA, Osano can support you and your efforts.
Quickly view which assessments are in progress and which have been completed with Osano Assessments. When assignees have outstanding assessments to complete and threaten to miss the due date, Osano automatically reminds them of the work they have ahead.
Using Osano to manage your assessments means reducing the number of assessments that go uncompleted, get lost, or become delayed.
