Four steps to data protection certification for your business

Use our data protection audit and data protection certificate to prove and document that personal data are collected and handled appropriately by your business. Based on legal requirements such as the actual, applicable European Data Protection Laws and Regulations and international safety standards such as ISO 27001, ISO 27002 and ISO 18028, our experts have developed a modular procedure that can be deployed individually.

Depending on how you intend to use your certificate, we have created three different certificate types for:

  • Companies with verified data protection management
  • Service providers with verified data protection management
  • Health insurance companies with verified data protection management

The individual stages of our data protection audit are as follows:

1. Preparation meeting

During a preparation meeting, our experts discuss how the certification will proceed before creating an individual audit plan.

2. Data protection audit

During this audit, our experts analyze all relevant departments and areas at your company:

  • General data protection: Our experts will meet with your company's data protection officer to evaluate the principles of data protection that have been implemented.
  • Departments: Our experts assess the processes within your departments, from HR to sales and marketing, in terms of data protection requirements.
  • Environmental safety: Our experts inspect your building and computer/server rooms to examine access options and physical data protection.
  • Order data processing: Our experts examine your service contracts to assess legal requirements and identify potential external gaps in your privacy and security.
  • Software check: Our experts examine the software you use to collect and process personal data.
  • Online check: Does your website contain the legally required information? Among other things, our experts check whether it offers a data protection declaration and any other necessary information.

At the end of the data protection audit you will receive a preliminary summary of results.

3. Audit report

Our experts draw up their audit report based on the analysis conducted during this audit.
