Compliance can be a challenge, but It doesn’t have to be. Thanks to new technology solutions, growing businesses can easily manage privacy programs with smaller teams and limited budgets.
But how do you get started? Here are our top 5 essential features that you should consider when looking for privacy and security software, and how OneTrust Pro can help.
Fully Embedded Compliance Research
The foundation of any privacy program is knowing which laws apply to you. It can be hard to stay ahead of the curve when the privacy landscape keeps changing, and staying on top of the regional laws and regulations you need to comply with is essential.
How OneTrust Pro Helps: OneTrust Pro Research & Readiness allows you to leverage the world’s most up-to-date database of regulatory research, OneTrust DataGuidance.

While keeping up to date with privacy laws is a must for any team, understanding the risk that internal processes and third-parties present is just as important. With time already at a premium for smaller privacy teams, pre-built templates for PIAs and DPIAs can be a valuable feature of compliance software.
