Safeguarding the lifeblood of business
Collected and exploited in ever-smarter ways, data is the gamechanger that's redefining commercial models and value. But its effective management and protection presents businesses with fresh technical, legal and regulatory challenges. As lawmakers race to keep up with the data revolution, it takes an agile, specialist team to help stay ahead of the compliance curve.
Involving experienced lawyers from a wide range of disciplines, our Data Protection and Privacy practice has expertise in regulatory, technology, corporate, contract, business sourcing, IP, competition and employment law. And when professional and banking secrecy, privilege (legal and non-legal) and related areas of confidentiality are in the frame, we provide information management and risk mitigation advice. Our strong links with regulators mean we can act quickly when changes occur – and give us valuable insight into what's coming up next.
We help design, draft, review, implement and update corporate privacy and security policies, and advise on whistle-blowing, employee telephone, internet and email use, customer data processing and respective consents. As information becomes increasingly borderless, we provide an end-to-end service for multinationals seeking cross-border data transfer solutions. We carry out comprehensive data privacy assessments – both to review existing processes and procedures, and to help launch new ventures. And in the event of cyberattacks, we provide the guidance needed for dealing with customers, regulators and the press.
