Our Core Auditing Frameworks:

  1. Data Protection People’s Own Framework: This robust framework, born from our extensive experience, serves as the cornerstone of our audit toolbox. It meticulously aligns with 30 or so requirements of the GDPR. This comprehensive framework acts as a bedrock, ensuring a thorough assessment of your data governance practices across the board.
  2. BS 10012 Personal Information Management System Framework: For organisations seeking a globally recognised standard for personal information management, we offer audits against the BS 10012 framework. This framework helps establish a systematic approach to data protection, encompassing risk management, incident response, and continuous improvement strategies. Our seasoned BS 10012 experts evaluate your compliance against this rigorous standard, identifying areas for optimisation and ensuring robust data protection practices.
  3. ISO 27701:2018 Information Security Management for Privacy: Building upon the established foundation of ISO 27001, ISO 27701 specifically addresses the challenges of data privacy within information security management systems. We leverage our expertise in the cyber realm to conduct meticulous audits against this standard, ensuring your data security measures seamlessly integrate with robust data protection practices.

This level of customisation ensures the audit process directly addresses your critical data protection challenges, leading to actionable insights and effective remediation strategies.
