GDPR Compliance Audit Checklist

A best practices guide to GDPR compliance revolves around the principle of creating transparency in data practices. It requires an “all-hands” initiative from functions in your business, including HR, IT, security, and even marketing and sales — essentially, any business unit that interacts with customer data.

Furthermore, achieving compliance will likely require developing new processes and controls as well as internal data mapping that ties all of your data to each operation, service, tool, vendor and any other aspect of the business that comes into contact with sensitive data. The following checklist can help you prepare for a GDPR audit.


Conduct an information audit to determine whether you need to comply with the GDPR and, if so, to collect evidence for your GDPR audit.

  • What personal data does your organization process? Does any of it belong to EU individuals? Are the processing activities related to offering goods or services to those individuals? If so, you probably need to comply with GDPR.
  • Document all the personal data that you have, where it came from, and with whom you share it.

Educate your employees about GDPR and what compliance entails.


Review your consent management privacy notices. Make sure they are clear and concise, and that they explain your “lawful basis” for processing personal data.


Put procedures in place to provide data subjects’ personal information to them or deletion information within 30 days of their requesting it.


Set up a form on your website to obtain data subjects’ consent at the time of collecting their data.


Establish a way to verify data subjects’ identities and ages, and for obtaining the parental or guardian consent of minors before processing their data.


Encrypt your data. Doing so can reduce your fines should your data get breached.


Conduct a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) — a risk assessment concerning your organization’s data handling processes.


Tighten your data security. End-to-end encryption is a must.


Appoint a data protection officer or another person to oversee GDPR compliance.


Draw up a data processing agreement with vendors requiring GDPR compliance, and have them sign it.


Designate a representative in an EU member state, if Article 27 requires your organization to do so.


If you are a multinational organization, check your compliance with GDPR Article 45, which regulates the transfer of personal data from the EU to non-EU countries.


Implement the appropriate technical and organizational measures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are processed.


Implement data-protection principles, such as data minimisation, in an effective manner and to integrate the necessary safeguards into the processing in order to meet the requirements of this Regulation and protect the rights of data subjects.
