Data Protection Audit

Data Protection Audits are used to assess an organizations current state of data protection compliance.

A Data Protection Audit will help you review and assess the adequacy of your controls, policies, and procedures. It can help to demonstrate that your organization is meeting your obligations under whichever data protection regulations apply in your jurisdiction, and across others which your company may have operations in or transfer personal data from. Worldwide there are many different regulations, such as the GDPR (EU), CCPA (California) PDPA (Singapore) or LGPD (Brazil). If your organization needs an audit just focusing on your GDPR compliance, please view our GDPR Audit service page. These services can be carried out remotely.

The Challenge

Whether you have already implemented a compliance programme or are at the beginning of your journey, a data protection audit will help you understand what is required to improve and demonstrate your compliance.

Like many organizations however, you may not have the necessary expertise internally or the resources to fund the training of staff to conduct data protection audits. Additionally, you may wish to audit your processes using external specialists to provide further reassurance to your staff and customer of your commitment to data protection compliance.

You can use our data protection audit to review your compliance with data protection laws in full or to target functions, departments or even 3rd party organizations providing data processing or data controlling services.
