    How does GDPR mandate a public audit of the code base? Is there such a provision in it? (Not a confrontational question)

      They’re just saying that if they have nothing to hide, they should prove it. Not that GDPR requires an audit.

      It doesn’t. You can check the full text at:

      https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/reg/2016/679/oj

      The only references to audits, are that supervisors can require an audit, processors need to allow audits by controllers, DPOs need to prepare for audits, and corporations or groups of enterprises need to have audit procedures in place.

      It doesn’t say anything about what kind of audits these need to be, other than to ensure compliance with the law.
