Data Protection Auditing

Is your customer’s data really protected?

Concerned your business might not be compliant with current data protection regulations?  You’re probably right to be.  Are you aware of big changes in data protection regulations coming in 2017?  You may soon need to be.

There’s hardly a day goes by without some business being involved in a massive data breach.   The world is changing fast and data protection regulations are changing with it.  Unless you are a data protection specialist, it’s difficult to keep abreast of all changes.  You don’t need to suffer sleepless nights worrying about it though.

Assessing your data protection risks – 2 options

Before you can commence upon your journey you must first know from where you are starting….. Anon

Option 1 – Light Touch

Your business could be well down the road to being fully compliant with data protection regulations.  If so, you could benefit from what we call a light-touch audit.  This audit gives us an opportunity to spot the early warning signs of something more serious.  We all need a health-check now and again just to keep us fit and in tip-top condition.  Maybe, every decade we need a full head to toe examination, but in between times a quick overview is sufficient.

Our informal light touch audits are the equivalent of the annual chat with your GP.  Nothing invasive or painful.  Just a check-up to ensure everything is working as expected, but more importantly, is an opportunity to spot the early warning signs of something more serious.

Once we understand your goals, we can spend a day with you visiting each department and quickly assess where the ‘red’ or ‘amber’ flags are. You can then address these issues internally, seek independent help, or ask us to assist you further.

If we are merely reviewing and rewriting policy documentation, this can be performed at arms-length.  We are commissioned by you, so any issues found, or solutions given, will remain 100% confidential.

Begin your journey to attaining peace of mind. Use our contact form to arrange for us to contact you to discuss your auditing requirements.  Alternatively, call 077483 72683 now to arrange your light touch audit.

Option 2 – In Depth

If, on the other hand, you suspect you have a way to go before you become compliant you will probably benefit from a full in-depth audit.  A proper data protection compliance audit of your business will help us to:

  • ensure appropriate data protection policies and procedures are in place
  • challenge the adequacy of any data protection controls already in place
  • verify current data protection policies and procedures are being followed
  • detect breaches or potential breaches of compliance
  • recommend changes in controls, policies and procedures as appropriate.
