Data Privacy

Innovacion Legal Services > Data Privacy

In today’s economy, information is perhaps the single most important asset for organisations as they innovate and grow. All organisations create, collect, retain and use a multitude of different types of data.

Businesses today handle large amounts of personal data, not only when active in B2C e-commerce but also as an employer regardless of the industry they operate in. These businesses require a vigilant and structured approach to the governance and protection of collected and retained data. Not to forget the introduction of new and more stringent data privacy laws which in turn have established that compliance with data privacy should be a top priority for all businesses.

 

We take a pragmatic and commercial approach to data protection, compliance and privacy by advising in-house legal teams, chief data officers, CIOs and other management executives as well as the boards of companies on privacy matters. This regularly involves taking account of data protection and privacy rules on a global basis, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation alongside national implementing laws.

We pride ourselves on providing responsive, reasoned and real world advice.

Ignoring your data privacy needs could be fatal for your business. Contact us today to ensure your business is protected.
