DataGrail Launches Dashboard to Spot Data Compliance Risks

A new privacy management dashboard from DataGrail could make it easier for businesses to spot risks, or areas where they’re falling out of compliance with the latest data privacy regulations, and access actionable recommendations to improve the way they handle customer data.

Privacy Dashboard, which DataGrail says is the first of its kind, pulls insights from across multiple DataGrail products to provide visibility into a company’s current and historic compliance health intelligence. The dashboard also offers guidance and KPIs to help teams spot business compliance risk and become more operationally efficient with their privacy programs. 

“The DataGrail Privacy Dashboard goes beyond simple tracking and reporting to help security and legal leaders truly understand the privacy risk and effectively communicate it to their company,” says Daniel Barber, CEO and co-founder of DataGrail. “The Dashboard surfaces insights, introduces actionable recommendations to reduce compliance risk, and is backed by DataGrail’s real-time integration network for industry-leading accuracy.”

The launch of Privacy Dashboard comes less than a week after a congressional subcommittee held hearings to discuss data privacy and the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) proposal, which would give the Federal Trade Commission jurisdiction to scrutinize entities’ data collection, processing, and transference practices. The proposed legislation would also aim to minimize the harms of data collection by requiring that individuals are notified of data collection practices and giving users the right to control their own data. While ADPPA has gained some traction, legislators have struggled to find a clear path toward instituting a national privacy policy.

“Now more than ever before, consumers view privacy as a human right, and new regional and global privacy legislation is constantly being introduced to protect that right. While businesses are complying with legislation, many companies have difficulty understanding that privacy risk is a leading indicator of overall business risk,” says Barber. “DataGrail’s Privacy Dashboard makes the connection clear — legal and security teams are able to provide instant visibility into the company’s current and historic health as well as provide insights to spot risks and actionable recommendations to increase operational efficiency.”

Unlike other data privacy dashboards, Barber says DataGail’s dashboard is “fully modernized,” and it provides a more comprehensive view into what’s happening across an entire company. He also says DataGail’s dashboard is the first to provide actionable recommendations to improve privacy management in an ongoing and scalable way, looking at historic health, as well as the impact of a company’s existing privacy programs.

A privacy-specific interface is setup to proactively reduce business risk, and prioritization tools allow teams to identify urgent tasks and forecast privacy program trends. Additional metrics for “money” and “time saved” give users insights into the value of their privacy programs, so company leaders can communicate the value to the rest of their organizations.

“We expect executive, security, legal and privacy teams to find immediate value in the DataGrail Privacy Dashboard. The lack of visibility into privacy programs has been a consistent problem, many companies are forced to manually consolidate data from multiple sources to get the big picture. This is not only time-consuming, but it makes it much more difficult to spot issues, identify risks, and understand trends,” Barber says. “Now legal and security teams will be able to easily prioritize their most critical privacy work and demonstrate the impact of their program on the overall business.”
