Data Protection and Compliance
Data is increasingly valuable – it allows businesses to evaluate performance and target new markets (amongst many other things). Fast-changing laws in this area mean that personal data is also an increasingly risky asset for businesses.
Whether your business handles vast amounts of sensitive personal data, upon which the business relies, or you process only a small amount of personal data which is incidental to your main operations, it is important for you to take stock of the data you hold and the way in which it is handled.
We can help you to stay ahead of the legal developments in this area and apply ‘privacy by design’ in your business operations. We can assist you to ensure that you have the correct policies and contracts in place to protect the data that you hold so that you can focus on your business without having to worry about compliance issues.
The core areas upon which we can advise include:
- Privacy and Data Protection policies (both internal and external)
- Data processing agreements
- Data sharing and licensing agreements
- International data transfers
- Sensitive personal data and children’s data
We also provide advice on other compliance issues, whether in relation to contracts, policies and procedures or providing training to your personnel, including:
- Anti-bribery and corruption
- Modern slavery laws and regulations
