The Cost Of GDPR Audit
Recently, Ernst & Young published a report that illustrated the 500 global corporations that are on track to comply with GDPR and ready to spend $7.8 billion.
“The question here is how much will the GDPR audit cost a small-scale organisation? There are plenty of factors that help to balance the cost of implementing a GDPR audit.”
For example, type, volume or size of your personal information that an organisation tackle has an impact on the cost of a GDPR audit. The GDPR audit process consists of different steps and phases. Every single level has its own cost and requires time and effort accordingly such as data discovery, customer privacy notification, GDPR staff training etc.
Few Things To Bear In Mind
First and foremost determine whether your organisation processes the data of people living in the European Union. If the answer is no, then GDPR does not apply to your organisation. If the answer is yes, then the factors mentioned below will help you better understand your requirements under GDPR:
The GDPR audit cost compliance inventory
- Your organisation needs to be either a data processor or data controller. Because both of these are accountable to protect your data and there are particular requirements to be fulfilled by controller or processors.
- Identify your risk factors; in case of any risk related to securing personal data, additional controls will be implemented.
- The more significant number of categories, business lines, and processes which require the handling of personal data has an impact on the cost. The higher the number, the greater the value. Additionally, it is quite essential for your organisation to process all personal data.
- Do know if any distinct repositories are being used to store personal data?
- How many organisations does your entity share personal data with? Have you implemented processes to monitor vendor compliance?
- For instance, if your organisation transfers personal data to an organisation within a non-EU country. Then you have to verify that contracts are in place with international organisations to fulfil requirements for data protection and privacy.
- Your company should keep data to be used for the least amount of time needed.
- To manage all the data; the correct processes for accessing, correcting, updating, transferring, restricting, removing and storing personal data ought to be implemented.
- Legal review of contracts is required to uphold whether a Data Protection Addendum has been drafted or signed by clients and vendors.
- Additional requirements will apply if you are processing children’s personal data.
- Utilise credible penetration testers and vulnerability scan vendors to test security controls for the compliance of secure personal data.
- To oversee privacy requirements, a Data Protection Officer (DPO) should be hired.
What is the risk of non-compliance with GDPR?
Non-compliance with GDPR can result in potential fines of up to 20 Million Euros fine or 4% of annual global revenues (whichever is higher) by the supervisory authority within the EU. This should not be taken lightly and as the value of personal data increases thus, the level of protection measures utilised should also be raised. Otherwise, you will be vulnerable to the risk of potential fines, loss of business and reputational damage.
