Privacy and Information Security

Privacy is important and is becoming increasingly important due to the rapid technological developments and digitalisation of businesses and the public sector. With increasing digitalisation comes privacy-related challenges and changes to the threat and risk posture with increased risk of adverse events, as well as opportunities for efficiency, automation and value creation.

Our lawyers are highly conscious of the fact that processing of personal data and the implementation of new technology constitute a risk factor. Improper processing of personal data or insufficient information security may result in violation of regulatory requirements. There is also the commercial risk, as businesses could risk loss of reputation, credibility and turnover.

Personal data and new technology can be valuable assets for innovative businesses that are able to navigate the rules for information security and processing of personal data. Clear and concise advice from adept lawyers is a requisite for the realisation of these opportunities.
