The Spanish Data Protection Agency (the SDPA) has been informed that some security companies are offering their services to perform security audits by telephone in order to examine compliance with Spanish Data Protection Legislation. The security companies claim that the telephone audits enable them to certify the adequacy of the medium and high level security measures applied to files, processing facilities and data storage and therefore sign off compliance with the Spanish data protection law.
