GDPR certification

Forvis Mazars has partnered with Europrivacy to provide companies with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance certifications. This is the first GDPR certification to be created since the launch of the GDPR four years ago, and has been authorised by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB). This certification positions companies as front-runners in data protection with a strong competitive advantage on the market.

Organisations can choose which data processing activities are certified. This could be a product such as a Software as a Service, or a process such as customer onboarding or any other distinct process or service.

We support companies to prepare for the audit and certification of a processing activity, at the same time enhancing their compliance with national and international data protection laws and filling gaps between the Europrivacy scheme requirements and the existing controls within the organisation.

At Forvis Mazars, we have certified GDPR certification specialists from various risk and compliance backgrounds, based in the EEA and USA, who have the expertise to deal with large complex organisations and processing activities.

Why should you get certified?

The GDPR is complex. Non-conformity carries important legal and financial risks, which are hidden costs until a company is fined (up to 4% of its worldwide turnover). Getting certified means that you have independent professionals taking a close look at your processes, so you can be sure that you are being compliant.

The certificates also demonstrate commitment to protect personal data and to be a trustworthy provider for customers, as well as a reliable data processor for business partners. It also reduces legal and financial risks by demonstrating compliance with legislation and ensuring controls are in place and can save substantial costs.

Learn how Forvis Mazars can help you can help achieve GDPR compliance certification and the benefits of getting certified.
