WHAT IS A DATA PROTECTION AUDIT?

Data Protection Audits are a business-critical tool designed to identify how your organisation stands in relation to applicable data protection and privacy laws by highlighting recognisable gaps and associated risks in relation to your compliance alignment and maturity.

Our Data Protection Audit is an independent assessment of the suitability, design and operational effectiveness of an organisation’s privacy and data protection controls. It can either be for a company’s internal use (private reporting) or for reliance by external stakeholders such as clients and business customers (public reporting).

Achieve GDPR Compliance With Our Specialist GDPR Audits

Navigating and complying with the GDPR can be a daunting prospect for businesses. Many organisations store house and process personal sensitive data across a variety of departments and a variety of systems, making it all-too-easy for undetected vulnerabilities to arise. 

In addition, a data breach could prove terminal for an organisation, resulting in large regulatory fines and irreparable reputational damage. As a result, it’s essential to execute a detailed GDPR audit to identify any areas for improvement within your data protection processes – and resolve them before they result in a breach. 
Bruce & Butler’s specialist GDPR audits are custom-tailored to all aspects of the GDPR, identifying any shortcomings in your GDPR compliance and providing actionable advice for remediation to ensure you’re protected.

How Much Does A Data Protection Audit Cost?

WHY HAVE A DATA PROTECTION AUDIT?

Organisations are facing a heightened level of scrutiny from business customers, data protection regulators, privacy activists, citizens and the judicial community, which is driving the demand for assurance.

Obtaining assurance through a comprehensive data protection audit helps you actively demonstrate compliance, requiring evidence that compliance is taking place at the operational level, and demonstrating that purposeful and sustainable data protection outcomes are being delivered throughout the organisation.

Our Data Protection Audit Process

We’ve developed a robust data protection audit process to ensure compliance with key data protection laws. Our data protection & specialist GDPR audits assess a number of key aspects relating to your current data protection efforts, including:

Law Applicability: Identifying which data protection laws apply to your business (and to what extent). This will also establish if you are a controller or a processor of personal data (or both). 

Process Evaluation: Analysing and assessing all aspects of data handling in your business, including the type of data handled as well as a review of current storage, safeguarding and erasure processes. 

Policy Evaluation: Ascertaining if there are any current data protection policies in place (and if any changes to existing policies are required).

Organisational Knowledge: Assessing the current level of data protection comprehension within your organisation, as well as how faculty would manage requests to safely share, store or erase sensitive data.

THE VALUE OF A DATA PROTECTION AUDIT
