Supplier Profiling and Risk Categorisation: We start by conducting a thorough review of your suppliers, identifying those who have access to sensitive data or are critical to your operations. We categorise suppliers based on the level of risk associated with their data processing activities.
Compliance Questionnaire: Our team prepares a comprehensive compliance questionnaire specifically tailored to assess your suppliers’ data protection practices. The questionnaire covers key areas such as data handling procedures, security controls, incident response capabilities, and employee training. We also include questions related to specific data protection regulations that are applicable to your organisation.
Onsite Assessments and Document Reviews: for high-risk suppliers, we can conduct onsite assessments to verify their compliance with data protection laws. This involves reviewing their policies, procedures, and technical safeguards. We also assess physical security measures, data storage practices, and any relevant certifications or audits they have undergone.
Gap Analysis and Remediation Recommendations: Based on the assessment findings, we perform a gap analysis to identify any shortcomings or areas where suppliers are not in compliance with data protection laws.
We provide a detailed report outlining the identified gaps and offer recommendations for remediation. Our experts work closely with you and your suppliers to develop an action plan to address the identified gaps and improve their data protection practices.
Ongoing Monitoring and Reviews: Data protection requirements evolve over time, and supplier compliance must be continuously monitored. We offer ongoing monitoring services and periodic reviews to ensure that your suppliers maintain their compliance with data protection laws. This includes regular assessments, updated compliance questionnaires, and follow-up audits as necessary.
