Frequently Asked Questions

We use a variety of methods to complete your privacy programme audit, depending on your business. These could include video conferences, in person meetings, independent working and more.

Generally, we can be flexible to fit with your requirements.

At the very least, you should expect to carry out an internal privacy programme audit on an annual basis in order to stay compliant with data privacy legislation.

However, choosing a trusted external team to carry out your audit can mean you get a more thorough report, free from any bias or incentives.

When you couple the Privacy Programme Audit with a Sovy Essentials product (such as the Sovy GDPR Privacy Essentials), we can provide more detailed recommendations, and even help you with some of the implementation of your actions.
