Data and Privacy

With organisations handling more data than ever before, privacy issues have never been more critical for any business.

Our team aligns itself across three broad privacy pillars

We advise our clients on policies, procedures and practices to ensure their operational processes are compliant with data protection requirements. We can also advise on the wide range of practical and strategic implications presented by operational compliance issues.

We work with some of the largest and most sophisticated companies in the world on commercial and product-related data protection work. This means we can guide clients to achieve their commercial and product-oriented goals in a way that provides effective protection for individuals’ data.

Recent legislation has introduced new requirements for reporting cyber security incidents to both regulators and to affected individuals. At the same time, it has removed barriers for individuals making requests to access significant volumes of data. We can help our clients prepare for these risks and mitigate for them as and when they arise.
