TrustArc, a data-privacy management company, recently announced the launch of TrustArc GDPR Validation, the latest addition to the TrustArc suite of technology-powered privacy solutions.

Under the TrustArc GDPR Validation program, upon successful completion of all GDPR remediation items, companies will be presented with a validation report and findings letter outlining their compliance status, which they can use to assure customers, partners, and other stakeholders of their GDPR compliance status. The GDPR Validation is powered by the TrustArc Platform, with intelligent, specialized workflow and reporting to streamline the end-to-end process.

The GDPR Validation was designed by a team of TrustArc legal, policy, and regulatory experts and breaks down the hundreds of pages of regulatory text into categories of requirements that can be demonstrated and evaluated objectively—such as, transparency, consent management, individual rights management, international data transfers, vendor management, and security risk management. With options to verify against 40 GDPR program-level validation requirements and/or 44 practice-level validation requirements, the TrustArc GDPR Validation enables companies to demonstrate that they have built, and are maintaining, a GDPR-compliant privacy program and GDPR-compliant products or processes.

The TrustArc GDPR Validation includes a limited-use license to the TrustArc Platform to streamline the process of managing the assessments, identifying gaps, reviewing remediation recommendations, assigning tasks, recording the audit trail of changes, and generating reports.
