OneTrust is the leading global software to operationalise data privacy compliance and Privacy by Design.

OneTrust automates data protection impact assessments (PIA) and data mapping, identifies privacy risks, and enforces risk management and control activities in an integrated and agile approach.

Our web-based software provides a central repository for DPO’s and privacy professionals to collaborate with business groups, service providers and trusted advisors managing privacy risks across controller, processor, and data transfer activities.

The result is the ability to demonstrate accountability and compliance with EU’s data protection requirements (GDPR, BCR, Privacy Shield), and globally across privacy jurisdictions and frameworks.

OneTrust can be deployed in the cloud or behind your firewall. Organisations ranging from multi-nationals to small/medium enterprises use OneTrust for use cases including PIA’s (DPIA’s), Privacy Threshold Reviews (PTR), data mapping, vendor management, incident reporting, M&A due diligence, access requests, information security reviews (TRA’s), and annual privacy audits.
