What is this?
A compliance audit allows you to understand how well your organisations is meeting its responsibilities when handling people’s information, whether it’s when your carrying out processing for your own purposes (as a ‘data controller’) or on behalf of another organisation (as a ‘data processor’).
Why do I need it?
Regardless of whether you’re a data controller, a data processor or both, your organisation has obligations to fulfil when handling personal data. By completing an audit, you’ll be able to establish a ‘baseline’ level of your compliance from which you can build an action plan of the things you need to do to get up to scratch.
A compliance audit is the first step in improving your personal data handling.
What’s the process?
Working with you in confidence and supportively, we’ll guide you through a series of questions to help you understand the extent to which your organisation is:
- Handling personal data lawfully, fairly and transparently
- Able to allow the individuals whose information you’re handling to exercise their rights;
- Accountable for what it does and has in place an appropriate governance framework;
- Handling data security, transfers of data outside of the UK or EU and data breaches.
