Data Governance Tools

The Data Governance Tools provide a set of tools that can be used to address specific data protection obligations in third-party risk. Given the pace and complexity of data protection regulations, Shared Assessments provides Data Governance Tools to help organizations navigate and address data governance in third-party relationships. Our Data Governance Tools were originally built to meet the demands of GDPR but have grown to include the requirements from various privacy regulations and framework updates, including CCPA.
