AUDIT AND GAP ANALYSIS.
Independent verification that you are on the right track is an essential component of any compliance
With the EU General Data Protection Regulation coming into force on 25 May 2018, the onus has shifted firmly onto businesses to demonstrate that they are proactively engaged in data protection management. Organisations that fail to comply with the GDPR’s statutory requirements can face fines of up to €20 million, or 4% of annual global group turnover, as well as lasting damage to their reputation.
Our team will work with your organisation to carry out an assessment and gap analysis on-site or by interview to examine:
- your existing processes and procedures
- notifications to data subjects/your existing privacy procedures and policies
- security processes
We work with key personnel in your organisation to understand the nature of your data processing needs. With minimum disruption to your teams or day-to-day function, our assessment will identify the key areas of risk and non-compliance.
We analyse the findings of the audit and prepare a commercially focused ‘traffic light’ report, which clearly highlights the areas of immediate risk, areas that could be improved on, and those that work well. We will take the time to explain the findings of the report and address any questions or concerns you may have. We can also outline the next steps to take and help you identify any additional remediation as appropriate
