New legislative instruments such as GDPR often impose a range of obligations on organizations. OneTrust's solutions aid privacy officers to carry out their duties, automate some processing and provide background information for compliance attestations.


  • OneTrust Assessment Automation supports threshold assessments, which determine whether personally identifiable information (PII) is likely to be present and, therefore, a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is required. It also supports the extensive administration around PIAs.
  • OneTrust Data Mapping provides the foundation for information-related compliance via documentation of enterprise data and its usage. It supports data discovery via questionnaires (with templated questions available), scanning, and automated API.
  • OneTrust Cookie Compliance scans a customer's website for cookies and tracking technologies, identifying and categorizing cookies. OneTrust Certification Seals provides lifecycle support for customers requiring certification of compliance activities.

Features and Benefits

  • The solution comprises four key functional areas that support many of the requirements imposed on privacy officers by GDPR and other privacy-related legislation.
  • The solution provides a point of reference for demonstrating accountability, compliance, and evidence of strong privacy practices (Privacy by Design).
  • A central repository supports collaboration across business units and with partners, integrating risk management across activities.
  • Deployment can be either on premise or in a cloud environment, and can be migrated between environments if requirements change.
