Danish financial data controllers in businesses should be in far better control of their company's data processes, states the Danish Data Protection Agency.

In 2019, an auditor's declaration was launched to do just that. The auditor's declaration was launched by the Danish trade organisation of auditing (FSR - Danish auditors) and the Danish Data Protection Agency, to help data controllers ensure that their data processors meet the requirements of the GDPR.

The one-year-old auditor's declaration is now being followed up by a new edition of the declaration, which can contribute to solving the task with more accurate compliance to the GDPR rules.

This will be particularly useful if there is less complexity in the processing of personal data, and the new declaration can thus help to ensure that the use of auditor's declarations is commensurate with the need in the specific situation.

It is not necessary to use auditor's declaration to comply with the GDPR, but it can be a good way to ensure that the relevant areas are highlighted and that an independent level of security is carried out.

“An auditor's declaration is not in itself necessary to be able to live up to the data protection regulation. However, if you choose to make use of the declarations, you are sure that relevant areas will be highlighted and that you will have an independent check of the security level. Such declarations could form a very good basis in a possible dialogue with the Danish Data Protection Agency regarding,” said Frederik Viksøe Siegumfeldt.

We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
