Extract from Adam Beschloss's article "What’s Common Between DSAR, Data Breach and E-Discovery Workflows?"
This article is the first in a 2-part series on DSARs. The first part will cover commonalities of DSAR and Part 2 will cover responding to DSARs.
Operationally, litigation and investigation, data breach response, and the response to data subject access requests (DSARs) follow similar paths. This includes data identification, collection, processing and the need for an “eyes-on” review of data—specifically, the ability to locate, isolate and manage personally identifiable information (PII).
Consequently, those alternative legal services providers (ALSPs) like QuisLex and UnitedLex with advanced managed review capabilities are leveraging their expertise honed on complex high-stakes litigations and investigations to solve the evolving challenges of data breach response and DSARs.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
