TRUSTe Announces General Availability of Assessment Manager for Enterprises to Streamline Data Privacy Management with Automation
Mar 12 15
TRUSTe announced the General Availability of Assessment Manager bringing the benefits of automation to the privacy industry. This new capability of TRUSTe's Data Privacy Management Platform transforms how privacy assessments are conducted, enabling privacy teams to better keep pace with the ever-changing business, legal and regulatory landscape. The recently released TRUSTe Privacy Assessment Benchmarking Study found large enterprises typically conduct 59 Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) per year taking 285 hours per assessment. Assessment Manager was developed to greatly reduce the level of effort required for each Privacy Assessment, while improving the overall quality of the data privacy management program. Assessment Manager provides a highly automated solution following the same assessment methodology used by TRUSTe consultants and analysts. Its capabilities include data collection audits, compliance reviews, gap and risk analysis and workflow management. The recent beta program for Assessment Manager was fully subscribed, reflecting the strong market demand for data privacy management technology solutions among enterprises. The Privacy Controls Database in TRUSTe Assessment Manager will be enhanced by the integration of IT compliance controls from more than 800 regulatory requirements, standards and guidelines covered within the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF). Many IT compliance controls are vital to effective privacy compliance especially in the areas of technical security controls and data integrity. The UCF includes controls from a wide variety of regulations and guidelines, including: Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Basel II, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, PCI-DSS Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, NASD Manual and HIPAA.
