Changes to data protection legislation, particularly introduction of the GDPR, have led to strict legal obligations being placed on all businesses that control or process any personal data.
Our data protection lawyers help you to understand how the data protection laws affect your business and what you need to do to comply with them.
The first step is typically to identify what personal data your business controls or processes, as well as how, why and where you do so. Once identified, we assist you to put in place appropriate measures, processes, training and documentation, including as to data collection, usage and storage, to ensure you remain fully compliant.
Our advice helps you to avoid personal data breaches, however, if one occurs, we provide prompt advice on how to manage and respond to the breach to minimise any consequential risks and disruption to your business.
We also advise on the rights for individuals, such as to be informed, to object, in relation to automated decision making and profiling, and for access, rectification, erasure and restriction of processing.
