Considerations for Privacy Requests as a Use Case for eDiscovery: eDiscovery Trends

eDiscovery is a “Swiss army knife” and, in their latest post, Cimplifi discusses several important considerations for privacy requests you need to know!

Their post (Why Use a Hammer When You Can Use a Swiss Army Knife?: Considerations for Privacy Requests, available here) reminds us that more than four in ten of 410 respondents (42.4%) in the eDiscovery Today 2023 State of the Industry Report said they apply eDiscovery technology and workflows to privacy requests.

Did you know that Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) are the primary mechanism by which individuals can request information about the way companies handle their personal information. You may also hear them referred to as Subject Access Requests (SAR), Data Subject Requests (DSR), or Subject Right Requests (SRR), but the DSAR has essentially either replaced, or is a superset of, these other request types. Data subjects are typically customers of the organization, but they can include any individuals for which the organization maintains data (including employees).


So, what type of info can DSARs and other privacy requests include? What are the latest data privacy trends? And how are eDiscovery technology and workflows applied to privacy requests? Check out their article here to find out more important considerations for privacy requests. It’s only one more click! This information is not meant to be private! 😉

So, what do you think? To how many use cases does your organization apply eDiscovery technology and workflows? Surely more than one, right? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
