Data Erasure Request, 3 Advantages

Companies that collect and use the personal data of the populace face several challenges when it comes to processing data erasure requests. In several places in the world, companies are required to provide the means for users to alter how they use personal data. This allows users to opt-out of data-sharing or data-selling, as well as manage what information the company can collect. As a result, companies face challenges such as: making it easy for individuals to request data erasure, ensuring requestor identity is verified before erasing data, and bridging the gap from verification to the deletion of data.

A digital solution would help address these challenges and enable companies to automate data erasure requests, leaving staff free to handle those requests more quickly.

SimplyCast presents the data erasure request use case, a hyperautomation system which allows software companies to easily process data erasure requests by pre-defining the internal process and streamlining the communication involved. This solution is a simple-to-track process that ensures that records are kept of requests, and staff act on them promptly.

Benefits of Data Erasure

SimplyCast anticipated need for data management tools which can help companies manage their data handling. Our goal is to ensure that data administrators can easily process data erasure requests, focusing most of their efforts on the actual adjustment or deletion of data. This solution makes use of four key factors: digital data erasure request forms, internal notifications to contact the correct individuals at each stage, a built-in identity verification process and tracking pipelines used to ensure all requests are processed.

Tracking All Active Data Erasure Requests

First, a digital data erasure form is created, when an individual wants to request an erasure of all data associated with them or change how their data is collected, they can fill out a form with key identifiers. These identifiers are then recorded and used to guide the data erasure process. With the information received in the form, administrators can track active data erasure requests with ease.

Simplified Methods of Communication

Once the data erasure request form is filled out, it sends a notification to account managers (or others with similar types of access), which starts the verification process. This is important, as data erasure is sensitive and can have legal repercussions if not dealt with correctly. Similarly, once the user’s identity is verified, account managers can progress the process to the next stage, which notifies a systems administrator. This method enables administrators to communicate effectively and swiftly. This also minimizes the time spent on communication between user and account managers, as well as account managers and system administrators.

Ensuring All Data Erasure Requests Are Completed

By using a pipeline to progress the user through each stage of data erasure, companies can ensure that not even the erasure request is left behind. This allows management to identify any issues or bottlenecks in their data management process and track the number of contacts opting out of data collection or sharing as needed. By extension, this also allows system administrators to identify how much time they spend managing requests like this, which improves system admin task turnaround.
