We talk to Mike Johnson of ComplyTrust, who says they “remember those you are supposed to forget.” We talk about the data management challenges created by data subject access requests (DSARs), right-of-erasure (ROE, AKA right to be forgotten, or RTBF) requests, and the fact that we have many parts of the datacenter that are much better at remembering than forgetting. Backups are a particular challenge, but Mike brings up other challenges, such as mergers and acquisitions, and salespeople importing old data. ComplyTrust SaaS offering has a unique solution to this problem by remembering (on your behalf) those you are supposed to forget, and continually checking to see that they stay forgotten.
