Data seeding solutions

How would you know if your data was stolen or misused?

Data seeding can help reduce the risk of data loss by letting you track your data sets and warning you if they are misused or offered for sale by cyber criminals.

Our data seeding team will work with you to design a data seeding programme tailored to your needs and requirements.


Data Quality Assurance Service

We can assess the quality of your database through physical visits, and data analysis and comparison, ensuring accuracy, coverage, completeness and timeliness.


Process Assurance

How do you assure your leadership team that your processes are working as intended?

The GDPR makes organisations accountable for ensuring that their controls are effective and their processes work as intended to protect personal data.

DQM GRC’s process assurance services allow organisations to track end-to-end user journeys to test that controls work as intended.

Data Licence Audit

We offer data brokers the ability to track the use of data supplied to their customers, allowing them to ensure the data is only used within the terms of the contract.


Data Supplier Audit

Do you know whether the data you’re buying is correctly permissioned?

By law, you are responsible for ensuring that there is a valid lawful basis for you to receive and use the data you acquire. Our auditors will assess a variety of issues and can work with you and your data brokers to address any issues we may uncover.

Organisations that run membership programmes relating to industry best practice are often seen as advocating for their members. To ensure member organisations are adopting best practice and expected standards within your industry, we recommend carrying out membership audits to ensure your organisation maintains its reputation.
