Business that conduct regular audits pay less on compliance than those that don't. That may sound counter-intuitive, but an efficient compliance programme is more cost-effective than one that is reactive.
Then there is the cost of non-compliance, which includes potential fines and cost associated with incidents, data loss, compensation, and getting your business back to standard operations. The cost of non-compliance differs from industry to industry, but all studies conclusively show that whatever industry you operate in, the cost of doing nothing is far more than investing in a compliance and security programme.
Each business will be on a different stage of the journey, so the first step is knowing actually how far along you are. This is what the health check from UKGDPR is for. Depending on the size, maturity, and industry, we have three levels that will suit most companies.
