A strong culture of compliance depends on having information readily available at your fingertips. Data is a powerful tool in the hands of privacy professionals. It can inform improvement efforts, point out trends, and be a hub for real-time and data driven insights, allowing departments, executives, and board members to share, view, and measure the performance of a privacy program.
Despite all these known benefits of robust reporting and dashboards, many privacy teams find collection and timely access to this critical data to be both a challenge and an impediment to quantifying the strategic impact of their privacy programs.
Executives struggle with a lack of visibility to real-time, actionable metrics and benchmarking data that is critical for internal stakeholders, regulators, and board members.
Without accurate and timely measurement of the state of the privacy program, management is asked to make investment decisions without the supporting information and return-on-investment. Often the process to pull together the required performance metrics and trends for monthly and quarterly program assessments can take days with painfully manual and error prone processes, resulting in
questionable data integrity.
Privacy professionals – those who manage the day-to-day operations of an organization’s privacy program – are challenged to track daily operational metrics without proper tools, automation, and access to playbooks for best practices in incident response. As a result, privacy teams are deprived of the insights embedded in the incident response data and cannot establish appropriate metrics and dashboards that are easily tracked for continuous operational visibility and excellence.
Despite these challenges, data analysis and reporting remains a necessity. Every privacy program is required to provide metrics and reports – to their board, to regulators, or internally for program wellness checks.

Radar is a patented SaaS solution that helps organizations comply with US federal, state, and international breach notification laws, guiding users through a consistent and intuitive process for profiling and scoring any data privacy or security incident to determine whether the incident is a data breach requiring notice to regulators, impacted individuals, or other external entities. Radar’s purpose-built workflow automates and simplifies the aggregation of your incident management metadata necessary for accurate and timely

Real-time dashboards provide visibility into incident assessment status and notification deadlines for

The Radar reporting functionality makes it easy to build custom reports in minutes, automating the board and executive level analysis that may otherwise take weeks to pull together manually. Reports can easily be customized, filtered, sorted, saved and exported.
Sample reports readily available in Radar:
- For regulators: HHS Summaries, including the annual report of data breaches impacting fewer than 500 individuals; and monthly and quarterly reports required to OCC, FDIC, FRB;
- For internal purposes: board and executive-level reporting, benchmarking and key performance indicators such as volume of reported incidents, number of affected records, root cause, incident source, etc.
