How Do Atlas and DSR-S Work?
Atlas assists in fulfilling subjects' data rights by querying against data stored with an organization's own infrastructure.
DSR-S is a tool that allows organizations to store aggregated data from a Data Subject Request (DSR) on their infrastructure. When a subject makes a Download Request, the data that is found on the subject is stored within the organization's DSR-S instance, keeping it safe and secure. The subject will be able to download this data directly from DSR-S within 48 hours before the data is deleted from DSR-S.
- Your customer ("Data Subject") puts in a request to download or erase their data in your Privacy Center (privacy..com).
- Ethyca stores and queues all the Data Subject Requests (DSRs) that come into your Privacy Center in Ethyca Web Services.
- Atlas, deployed in your infrastructure, polls Ethyca Web Services to retrieve your organization's queue of DSRs.
- Before proceeding to the database execution, Atlas can trigger an outbound pre-processing webhook to your service defined in the Atlas deployment. Please see How To: Configure Atlas Webhooks for more information.
- Atlas orchestrates requests to each of your managed databases using the PII map that you created in the Atlas UI as part of the Atlas configuration.
- After the database executions, Atlas will trigger a postprocessing webhook action, which is a one-way call to your service.
- Atlas will return an object of aggregated responses from your organization's databases to Ethyca Web Services.
- Ethyca then fetches data for each DSR from each of your configured 3rd party SaaS data integrations.
- Ethyca aggregates both the response from Atlas and each of your data integrations and sends the final package to DSR-S. DSR-S will send the final downloadable package to be stored on your desired cloud storage system.
- Ethyca Web Services will send the data subject an email containing a URL with a downloadable ZIP file to access their DSR.
- Using the URL provided, which Ethyca proxies to your storage system, the data subject is able to download the package and save it to their local device.
