Brian Davidson, Privacy and Information Advisor

Brian Davidson, Privacy and Information Advisor, Fieldfisher

I am a data privacy expert with experience in advising domestic and international organisations across the media, telecommunications, financial, IT, consultancy and public sectors. This includes various in-house secondments at major international organisations.

I have particular expertise in international data transfers and BCR, marketing, e-privacy and employment issues. I also work closely with European national data protection authorities in order to secure appropriate client authorisations and registrations.

Working on secondment with a major broadcaster and communications company, I was able to advise on the implementation of a new broadcasting content platform across various European jurisdictions. My knowledge of data transfer, marketing, e-privacy and security issues meant that I was able to work with the relevant project leads to provide key regulatory and compliance advice to ensure delivery of the platform within the required timeframes.

I am a regular contributor to industry publications, including PDP's Privacy & Data Protection where I wrote the 'ICO's new Subject Access Code – a toolkit for compliance'. I also write monthly for The Privacy Advisor, the International Association of Privacy Professional's newsletter and co-wrote European Privacy: Law and Practice for Data Protection Professionals.
I am a regular speaker at Fieldfisher's Privacy Summit.

In my spare time I can be found running, watching some football and catching up on old Seinfeld episodes.
