Data Protection Audit:

Getting to GDPR / DPA 2018 compliance is essential for all businesses. Therefore, all organisations must make an active effort to ensure they are accountable for data protection compliance.

Therefore, CDS recommend an annual compliance audit:

  1. This a great tool to review the progress you have made and make sure any gaps previously plugged have not opened up again.
  2. Many businesses are always growing and changing, so our annual compliance audit allows you to ensure any necessary tweaks and changes your current GDPR / DPA 2018 policies, procedures etc. to ensure compliance is maintained.
  3. An annual compliance audit using our qualified GDPR & information security professionals is also a very effective way of ensuring GDPR / DPA 2018 awareness within your organisation does not fade over time.
