DSAR test reveals huge data breach potential

A phoney data subject access request (DSAR) made by a woman’s partner to companies in the UK and the US prompted a return of personal data from 25% of the firms contacted.

The security specialist making the request leveraged the terms of the GDPR to make his claim. He got in touch with dozens of companies on both sides of the Atlantic, stating in each case that he wanted information held on his fiancée. One of the data returns held his fiancée’s criminal record check.
