August 2023 MineOS Product Updates

This August, we rolled out a series of feature updates aimed at enhancing user experience and streamlining operations for data privacy. Let's dive into what's new and how it can benefit you.

Introducing DSR Autopilot for MineOS Users

Navigating through requests has never been more seamless for MineOS users, thanks to the new DSR Autopilot feature. This tool is designed to give you more control and efficiency over your request handling process. Here's how:

Automated Responses: Directly from the DSR Handling -> Requests screen, users can set automatic scheduled responses for each request or even for specific categories of requests.

Tailored to Your Needs: If you're looking to batch-process deletion requests or perhaps requests from a particular region, the Autopilot feature has you covered. Just set the specifics, and let the system handle the rest.

Stay Informed: A handy indicator provides real-time updates on any issues and the status of completed requests. This means you're always in the loop, ensuring that Autopilot is working smoothly for you.

Incorporating DSR Autopilot into your workflow means less manual oversight, freeing up your time and ensuring a smoother experience for your users. Don’t miss out on leveraging this cool new tool.

MineOS New Catalog Design

The new reorganization of data assets isn’t merely about aesthetics. By placing top services from each category front-and-center, the catalog is essentially forcing a perspective that emphasizes priority and efficiency. Now, your data inventory puts your top services within each category in a more prominent position, encouraging you to filter by usage and other metrics in order to better understand the specifics of your unique data environment.

Custom Data Types and Subjects

Rather than pick from a predefined list of data types when building a data inventory and labeling the details of your processing, now you can add custom data types and subjects. Custom data types might be specific to a process at your company - one where new data is created for which data types aren’t obvious or predictable, or you may just want a more memorable name for a specific data type that is critical for your business. 

Companies using generative AI to stitch together new data from existing data fields, for example, are excellent candidates for custom data types. As the AI creates new data, it can be automatically assigned the custom type you prefer. This small but important feature can even be used simply to differentiate your Australian employees from others. Most importantly, naming for custom data types allows you to incorporate these data types in policy rules and reports, and govern even the most unique data ecosystems effectively.

Finally: Your Portal, Your Logo

Empowering users has always been at the forefront of user-friendly designs, and our latest feature hits the mark. Now, you can update your company’s logo directly in the Settings, providing you with the ability to give your privacy portal a unique touch that is reassuring to users. Not only is it better aesthetically, by aligning the portal with your brand, you strengthen its internal presence in terms of data operations and enhance your employees' comfort and trust when using the platform.

Stay tuned to the MineOS blog for more upcoming feature updates, destined to make managing data privacy easier and easier as the months march on!
