Frequently asked questions / FAQs
What is a data protection audit?
A data privacy audit is a review of the company's data privacy requirements. Depending on the scope of the audit, the current status is compared with the target status for the entire company or for specific areas, and improvement measures are identified.
Who performs a data protection audit?
Data privacy audits are performed by data privacy experts who are part of the internal data privacy department or have been appointed as external data privacy officers. In larger organizations, data privacy audits may fall under the remit of the internal audit department.
When is a data protection audit conducted?
Data privacy audits are performed both on an ad hoc basis and on a regular basis. Occasional audits are used either to determine the status quo of the data protection organization or to meet specific data protection requirements in order to obtain certifications. Regular data privacy audits are reviews of the effectiveness of the data privacy management system (DSMS) with the purpose of identifying improvement measures.
What is the goal of a data protection audit?
The objective of a data protection audit is basically to create transparency regarding the current status of implementation of the statutory data protection requirements. Subsequently, the identified improvement measures must be prioritized and implemented in the appropriate order.
What is audit software?
Audit software is a tool that makes it easier for auditors to plan, create and perform audits. It also helps in creating reports and tracking identified actions.
What is an audit finding?
An audit finding is a finding or observation made during an audit review that indicates that an entity is in violation of a specific audit criterion or policy. An audit finding may also be referred to as a deviation, deficiency, nonconformity, or complaint.
What is a brick and what types are there?
Bausteine sind Komponenten, mit denen ein Audit-Fragebogen zusammengestellt wird. Dabei handelt es sich entweder um vordefinierte Fragetypen (z. B. Multiple Choice) oder um Bausteine, die zur Angabe und Struktur dienen (z. B. Überschrift, Gruppierung).
What is an audit questionnaire?
A questionnaire is prepared before an audit and is used by auditors or reviewers to ensure that all necessary information is collected and all relevant questions are answered. An audit questionnaire is first designed in caralegal, and can then be used for one or more audits.

This includes the GDPR gap analysis, various quick checks for departments (HR, marketing, ...), maturity measurements and service provider checks. Our team would be happy to talk to you about your specific requirements.
Which audit methods are supported?
In the audit software we offer 2 common audit methods:
Interviews: In this method, employees or managers of the audited company are interviewed by the auditor to obtain information about processes, procedures, procedures and other aspects that are examined as part of the audit. The auditor can store the answers and notes directly in caralegal.
Self-disclosure: In this method, the audit questionnaire is sent to the respondents, who fill it out independently in caralegal. The auditor then receives the answers in an aggregated form in the caralegal software.
What does the template editor do?
The template editor allows auditors to create questionnaires using the given building blocks and branching logic. The editor offers numerous formatting options with which audit questionnaires can be designed clearly and uniformly.
