Automated Generation of Personal Data Reports from Relational Databases
Abstract. This paper presents a novel approach for extracting personal data and automatically generating Personal Data Reports (PDRs) from relational databases. Such PDRs can be used among other purposes for compliance with Subject Access Requests of Data Protection Acts. Two methodologies with diĀ®erent usability characteristics are introduced: (1) the GDSBased Method and (2) the By Schema Browsing Method. The proposed methdologies combine the use of graphs and query languages for the construction of PDRs. The novelty of these methodologies is that they do not require any prior knowledge of either the database schema or of any query language by the users. An optimisation algorithm is proposed that employs hash tables and reuses already found data. We conducted several queries on two standard benchmark databases (i.e. TPC-H and Microsoft Northwind) and we present the performance results.
