Data Privacy Audits
Our Data Privacy Audit evaluates the current state of your data governance and data privacy practices to date. The report will be collated as a result of a high level, interviewed-based assessment of the current capabilities and gaps in data governance and data privacy practices within your organisation.
It aims to bring all stakeholders to a common understanding of the areas of improvement and address these as we develop the minimum viable data standards across your departments.
The introduction of the GDPR and the Data Protection Act have altered the landscape of data protection for companies. Our team can help you dynamically adapt to these changes.
We will raise awareness through identifying compliance gaps against the criterion outlined by the GDPR. To ensure our solution is tailored to you, we will engage with key stakeholders and employees to identify relevant processing activities. These steps will define a clear and progressive roadmap to tailor GDPR requirements to your needs.
Our Maturity Assessment leverages a proven privacy methodology to review the current state of your organisation and the ideal end-goal of data privacy maturity for you.
First and foremost, we review the policies, notices and processes which are currently in place. We then, identify privacy related risks and gaps across your privacy programme. Lastly, we amalgamate a range of actionable insights and recommendations to overcome recognised gaps. The maturity assessment can take place on a one-time offering or on an annual basis.
