GDPR and Data Protection

Business data presents significant opportunity and risk. Our data protection experts take a hands-on, commercially minded approach, demystifying the law and giving you a better understanding of the data you hold. We take the time to understand your business and operational objectives so that your data processing, procedures, policies and compliance work for you and your business.

Driving results through data

Not all data is good data, but we’ll help you make informed legal decisions about what you hold, how you hold it and how you can use it to build customer confidence. It goes without saying that minimising the risk of a breach is crucial, but should your data be compromised we’ll help protect you from financial penalties and reputational harm by responding quickly, professionally and discreetly.

Our specialist data protection lawyers have particular experience in cloud based software, IoT, AI, IT infrastructure, life sciences, blockchain, retail, ecommerce, big data, machine learning, biometrics and cyber security.

How can we help you?

GDPR expert advisors

Big data is big business, but also high risk if you are not scrupulous about identifying what types of data you are collecting, storing or sharing.

The GDPR and its definition of “personal data” has recently shaped business practice globally, in relation to collecting and dealing with individuals’ personal data. The GDPR continues to be relevant to UK business even after Brexit and how a business collects and manages personal data, biometric data and customer authentication processes has a significant impact on its reputation.

We can advise and assist you in your management of your own data compliance procedures. Starting from the conduct of a full data audit, to liaising with the ICO, managing UK access to EEA personal data, drafting policies, providing training to directors and staff, or negotiating sensitive contracts with a data focus, we can assist you in all aspects of your data management.
