BREXIT GDPR Audit
The Brexit GDPR Audit is designed specifically to assess your exposure to EU personal data transfers post the BREXIT transition period. I.e. from the 1st January 2021.
As part of the BREXIT GDPR Audit service we will:
- Assess your current transfers to find out where your risks are
- Document what actions are available to legalise your processing
- Work with you to implement any changes required
If you are a UK business you should already be assessing your BREXIT risks and this should include EU personal data. If you already have enough to worry about, let GDPR Auditing do this for you. It typically takes only one day and provides you with a complete risk assessment and report on those risks
EU – US Personal Data Transfers
The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruling on the 16th July invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield.
With the inevitability that Binding Corporate Rules and Standard Contractual Clauses are also invalidated without a full assessment and significant supplementary controls.
If you transfer EU/UK personal data to the US or use US processors such as Amazon, Mailchimp, Microsoft, Salesforce etc. then you need to be thinking about whether those data transfers are still legal, and if they aren’t what you should do about it.
If either of those questions are not easy then let GDPR Auditing answer them for you.
GDPR Quality Assurance
Whatever the state of your GDPR program, our GDPR Quality Assurance service is designd to provide you with a full independent review of your GDPR Compliance.
Through a combination of Audit, Check and Verify stages, a comprehensive report is produced that will provide:
- Recommendations and priorities for the elements of GDPR you haven’t started yet, (Audit).
- Assurance that any elements you are working on will deliver the outcome you need, (Check).
- Confirmation that the elements of the GDPR you have finished are working as they should (Verify).
No matter where you are on the path to compliance an ACV audit provides you with the assurance you are heading in the right direction.
GDPR compliance is a combination of tasks that absolutely need to be done, and other tasks that are either optional or may have multiple solutions depending on the risk you your business.
We understand that becoming compliant with GDPR can be time consuming and expensive so we listened to our clients and created the GDPR Essentials service.
The GDPR Essentials service is a cost effective and resource efficient way to achieve a level of GDPR compliance. The essentials service fulfils the Information Commissioners requirement that each organisation should take “adequate, and appropriate measures proportional to the risk”.
If you only ever invest in one GDPR service, make sure it is this one.
DPO as a Service
Does your organisation need a Data Protection Officer or has decided it would be beneficial?

GDPR ANNUAL REVIEW
Whilst there is currently no fixed requirements for GDPR reviews we recommend at least an annual review. This ensures compliance has been maintained.
The GDPR requires you to continually review your data processing risks and conduct a DPIA before any significant change is implemented.
We can complete reviews that are tailored to your specific needs on your previously completed audits and DPIAs.
DATA PROTECTION IMPACT ASSESSMENT (DPIA)
Whilst it is good practice to take a privacy by design approach when building your systems and carry out a Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs), the GDPR makes privacy by design a legal requirement.
The GDPR also makes PIA’s (referred to as DPIAs by the GDPR) mandatory where data processing is likely to result in high risks to individuals.
The regulation strongly recommends a DPIA is completed for processing operations already in place prior to May 2018. DIPA’s are required for any new processing or changes to existing processing.
We can advise you, as well as complete or assist you in completing a GDPR DPIA.
