GDPR Audit and Consulting

The General Data Protection Regulation, “GDPR”,  is a regulation that took effect on May 25th, 2018 in the European Union. The GDPR aims to protect the personal data of each individual by enforcing a set of strict rules on how the data are handled, processed and used by companies.

 

If your organisation is considering a GDPR Audit or consultation on how to implement, enforce or improve GDPR policies in order to comply with this European legislation, then choosing a company who specialises in GDPR Audits makes sense. CDMA Services Ltd has been selected among other Tenders to be exclusively conducting GDPR Audits on behalf of the Office of the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection. Furthermore, our experienced team of Information Security and GDPR experts, have helped a variety of private business and public sector organizations across Cyprus and Greece, to develop, enhance, audit and maintain their GDPR program.
