THE GDPR AUDIT / GAP ANALYSIS
What's The Purpose of The GDPR Audit / Gap Analysis?
An essential first step in compliance is a GDPR Audit or Gap Analysis.
This assesses what personal data you process and how you use it – how your organisation currently stores, secures, manages and accesses personal data. It’s vitally important to understand your starting position in order to know what work you need to do to work towards GDPR compliance. A GDPR Audit or Gap Analysis is necessary to give you a reasonable idea of where your compliant and non-compliant areas are and to identify the changes that you need to make. Once this assessment is complete, you will find you are in a better position to map out a project plan to set about complying with the regulation.
We can conduct a GDPR Audit quickly and effectively and explain to you in an easy to understand way what needs to be done next. Contact us today to get things moving!
