Kirsten Whitfield | Fieldfisher

My background in IT contracting has given me the opportunity to combine my interests in technology, data, and privacy on many interesting projects.  These range from data analytics projects of national importance to launch of apps by tech start-ups with great ideas.

I am a cyber breach specialist. I help clients prepare for incidents, including putting in place policies they can rely on in an emergency and training incident response teams for the 'real deal'.  I help clients manage incidents small and large, including multi-territory incidents.  Having recognised a need for technology to help clients more effectively assess and manage personal data breaches, I have played a leading role in developing Fieldfisher's revolutionary Data Breach Manager tool.

I support clients in the public and private sectors to address data protection compliance when conducting investigations.

Having held Data Protection Officer roles in-house for two major IT providers and an international law firm I always aim to give clients advice with a good measure of pragmatism.
