Data Protection, Privacy & Cybersecurity: An issue you can’t afford to ignore.

Data is not just relevant to technology; it’s now an intrinsic part of life and business, and is therefore both valuable and vulnerable. So it’s vital to have a proper understanding of the issues involved, to extract maximum value from data and to ensure it’s collected, stored and used legally and protected securely.

Our team keeps abreast of the dynamic data regimes, laws and regulations, to give you the most relevant, practical advice. This combination of technical and legal knowledge makes us well placed to advise in this sector. We regularly host events to help business leaders keep up to speed with the latest and most significant developments.

In detail

We’ll work closely with you to make sure your contracts, policies and procedures are properly matched to the way you use data, as well as meeting the relevant legal requirements.

Cyber security is a threat to every business, not just those directly concerned with technology. Security breaches and theft or hacking of systems and their data can harm your business continuity, compromise your intellectual property and other assets, as well as leading to substantial fines and damaging your reputation. We can help you examine your current approach to cyber security, work with you to create a robust strategy to protect data and other digital assets, comply with law and regulations, establish good practice and have effective contingency plans ready to implement.
