What is a Data Protection Audit?

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.

Why Have a Data Protection Audit?

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).

Policy Evaluation

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

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.

Organisational Knowledge

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

The Value of a Data Protection Audit

Undertaking a data protection audit demonstrates to third parties relying on the report (such as regulators, suppliers and customers) that fulfilling data protection requirements is important to your organisation.

A Data Protection Audit identifies any gaps in the operational application of your data protection and privacy controls and where to apply remediation efforts paving the way for great continual improvement.

Prioritising Data Protection compliance demonstrates that your contractual obligations to business customers are being satisfied and that any commitments made to regulators are being met.

Data Protection Auditing demonstrates a good system of risk management and internal controls to address important societal issues relating to privacy. This can aid effective corporate governance and promote the long-term sustainable success of organisations.
