We have recently been advised that the Data Protection Commissioner has been conducting compliance audits in counties across the country. A compliance audit typically examines an organisation’s procedures, policies, systems and records in order to assess whether the organisation is generally in compliance with requirements under data protection legislation. An audit also entails a general assessment of the organisation’s level of awareness regarding data protection requirements based on existing policies and practices within that organisation.
With this in mind, we remind you about the Data Protection resources which have been compiled to provide guidance to Chambers and their members with regard to Data Protection.
