Having the right systems and practices in place is important helping ensure your business operates in accordance with the law.

What is data protection and privacy law?

Data protection and privacy law refers to the legal framework that governs the collection, use, storage, and sharing of personal information. It aims to protect individuals’ privacy rights and ensure that their personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently by organisations.

Helping you comply with changes to data protection and privacy laws

The largest ever overhaul of UK data protection law is now in place and all businesses must comply or risk facing heavy fines and significant reputational damage.

There is a shift in how data protection and privacy is being dealt with as:

  • There is an increasing number of high-profile data breaches; and
  • Greater consumer awareness of their legal right to redress when things go wrong.

It is important that you are aware of your obligations and are able to comply with these and we can help with:

  • Reviewing and advising on internal data protection and privacy policies and procedures
  • Drafting data protection and privacy policies and procedures
  • Reviewing customer and supplier contracts to check that data protection provisions are suitable
  • Providing training to your organisation.
