Privacy and Data Protection

Download

The first in a three-part series, this report serves as a how-to guide to assist internal auditors in assessing their current level of preparedness regarding privacy and data protection issues, particularly as their approaches relate to the present state of the profession overall.

Further, the report is intended to help internal auditors understand specific risks and threats and to help them ensure that relevant controls are developed, implemented, and operated effectively. The framework, audit plan, and implementation discussions in the later sections of the report are designed to provide a foundation on how internal audit departments can build their own structures.
