Data Protection Legal Advice
The General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) became enforceable from 25 May 2018. The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) assists and supplements the adoption of the GDPR into UK law by repealing the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA 1998) and providing permitted national derogations and exceptions to the requirements of the GDPR.
We provide advice on all aspects of laws concerning data protection and data privacy.
Data Protection Audit
We will conduct a detailed assessment designed to identify any gaps between our clients’ internal policies, controls, processes and procedures and the requirements of the GDPR and related data protection legislation.
Data Protection Risk Assessment
A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) helps identify and minimize the data protection risks that may exist when any organization processes personal data.
We provide advice in all areas and aspects of the GDPR and data protection law, including the preparation and review of data protection policy documents.
Training and Workshops
The principle of “accountability” in the new world of the GDPR, means that it is no longer sufficient for organisations to merely implement policies and procedures. They must now demonstrate a data protection culture. Training and education is a key way of ensuring compliance as well as assessing and improving the level of staff awareness across your organisation.
If you require legal advice on any of the above or would like to
