Data Protection Lawyers

Introducing data sensitivity and compliance

Managing personal data has been firmly brought to the top of the agenda for business owners with the introduction of GDPR.

Mishandling personal data could expose businesses to substantial fines and serious reputational damage – you can’t afford to get it wrong.

With GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018, as well as other personal data regulations failing to be compliant could see you liable to pay fines and compensation or handling lengthy data subject access requests and complaints with regards to how you use, store and share personal information held within your business and with third parties.

  • Identifying the personal data you collect, how you process it and the strengths and weaknesses of your data protection policies and processes is the starting place on the journey to GDPR and data compliance. We help you to achieve and demonstrate compliance, as well as showing you how to act on non-compliant areas within your business with robust action plans and reporting
  • Diving deeply into how your third-party suppliers use and process the personal data that your business holds will help to keep control of the information that you handle. Appreciating how your data flows and is shared with third parties means that your due diligence processes must be more thorough than ever before. Our team will support you on the road to technical and legal compliance across your entire supply chain and network
  • Dealing with data breaches, data subject access requests and investigations by the ICO can be time consuming. We will support you in managing a breach, dealing with any reporting obligations, and responding to data subject rights requests
