The SAR Process
The Process Of Handling Subject Access Requests
Handling a Subject Access Request (SAR) is not just about a simple request and response; it’s a multifaceted process that involves delving deep into the vast ocean of information uncovered during the search.
Receiving a SAR can often lead to sifting through a labyrinth of thousands of emails, voice recordings, CCTV footage, images, logs, and an assortment of documents, all in diverse formats.
Your responsibility under the law is to carefully scrutinise this trove of data, performing SAR Redactions meticulously, which entails the careful removal of personal data belonging to individuals. Additionally, you must discern what information should be safeguarded and withheld.
