Case Study: challenger bank

The situation

This Brazilian start-up bank is one of Latin America’s largest financial technology companies. In 2018 it opened an engineering unit in Berlin to attract innovative programmers to the company. Without EU customers at the present time, its privacy programme is centred around the bank’s HR function for its German employees.

The approach

HewardMills conducted an HR data protection audit gap analysis of the current data protection programme against our recommended model programme and to progress to a remediation plan based on our findings to ensure the bank meets its statutory obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The outcome

At time of writing, we have submitted the first audit report after the initial interviews in preparation for implementing GDPR compliant policies and rolling out training across the company.
