Tim Van Canneyt, Partner - Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy
I am a specialist information technology contract negotiator and litigator and a data protection and e-commerce advisor.
I have significant experience in the field of privacy, data protection and data security, where I help clients with their privacy compliance issues. I have a particular interest in privacy challenges caused by digital technologies and services, such as RFID, cookies and cloud computing. Another important part of my practice consists of drafting and negotiating complex IT service and outsourcing agreements.
Over the years, I have been seconded to clients in the financial services and technology consulting sector, which allowed me to gain a better understanding of my clients’ needs.
I have been recognized as a leading practitioner in The International Who's Who of Information Technology Lawyers and Legal 500 describes me as coupling 'dedication and efficiency' with 'skills in IT and data privacy'.
I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), and a member of eComlex, an international association of leading IT and e-commerce lawyers established to meet the needs of businesses throughout Europe.
I have been a speaker at several seminars in Belgium and abroad and a guest lecturer on ICT contracting practices for the University of Brussels. I have also published several articles in the field of data protection and e-commerce, and I am regularly interviewed by the press on data protection and e-commerce matters.
In my spare time I like to go running, cycling and to race the odd Olympic distance triathlon.
