Data Protection Audit

Looking for a Data Protection Audit? Are you compliant with GDPR?

Your organisation may have implemented a GDPR program that was fit for purpose in 2018.

However, can your organisation demonstrate continued data protection readiness today, and if so, how?

Audit Packages

Our team of qualified Data Protection Auditors have defined a pragmatic GDPR Audit framework which has been tried and tested across multiple sectors within several different international organisations.

We offer both a 360° audit package as well as specific audit packages which focus on Legal, Data protection by design & by default, Accountability, Data subject rights or GDPR verification audits.

A Verification audit looks under the hood of your organisation (or your processes), verifying that personal data is actually processed in the way described. More information can be found on our separate audit website:

How can this Data Protection Audit help your Organisation?

Our independent audit team assists organisations in demonstrating their GDPR readiness. A typical audit includes:
