Data Protection Audit and Report

Our Data Protection Audit is designed to help organizations achieve compliance with key data protection regulations, including the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Compliance with these regulations is not only required by law, but also essential for maintaining the trust of your customers and stakeholders. Conducting a yearly audit is an effective way to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to protecting personal data and complying with relevant legislation.

During the audit, we will assess your controls, policies, and procedures to determine whether they meet the requirements of the law. Any gaps or areas for improvement will be identified, and we will provide guidance on how to remediate them. With our Data Protection Audit, you can be confident that your organization is meeting its legal obligations and protecting personal data to the highest standards.

Outsourced Data Protection Officer

Outsourcing your Data Protection Officer (DPO) can provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for ensuring your organization’s compliance with data protection regulations, allowing you to concentrate on your core business activities. If you are hesitant about appointing a full or part-time DPO in-house, BIC can assist you by acting as your DPO. With years of experience, we can provide you with the support you need, whether onsite or offsite. As an outsourced DPO, we will work as an extension of your team. For more information on the key benefits of outsourcing your DPO, please visit our blog.

Record of Processing Activities Services

The Nigeria Data Protection Regulation Implementation framework obligates, as per Article 3.1, written documentation and overview of procedures when personal data is processed. Records of Processing Activities (ROPA) must include information about data processing, including data categories, the group of data subjects, the purpose of the processing and the data recipients.

This must be made available to authorities upon request and must be kept as a living document and added to when business processes change involving personal data. Our Record of Processing Activities services provide your organization with a fully documented ROPA tailored specifically for you.
