A data protection audit is not only suitable for checking the data protection management system in your company, but also offers a good opportunity to get started with data protection in the first place.
In principle, data protection audits are recommended for all companies of any size that process personal data. This is especially true if there are indications of possible hacker attacks, if there are other doubts about IT security, or if personal data requiring special protection is processed. In addition, the more extensive the personnel management and thus the processing of employee and applicant data, the more urgently a data protection audit should be carried out.
A decisive role is also played by the respective specifics in the company and the associated measures for the protection of personal data in the respective departments of the company.
