2614355 - [Data Protection and privacy Compliance]: Read Access Log (RAL) functionality


Your company stores a wide range of personal data on your users, some of which could be considered potentially sensitive (for example, Personal Information gender, SSN etc). In order to be compliant with your local data privacy laws, it’s important that you keep track of who has accessed such sensitive personal data. As of the Q1 2020 release, you can use the new read audit function to designate fields on the UI as sensitive, and then create reports which can audit/display the user information accessing sensitive data and the time during which the data is accessed.

This enables Data Protection Officers to quickly determine who has accessed the personal data of employees or external candidates at your company.

This RAL feature would be available in all SF dataCenter now.
