Every business needs an efficient information management system to operate effectively. Rigorous data protection laws, plus increasing regulatory and commercial pressure means that a clear understanding of the storage and use of information is fundamentally essential.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force in May 2018, alongside a new regulation on ePrivacy, and all UK entities must understand the implications and comply with the rules if they provide goods, services or market to citizens of the European Union. This will continue to apply after the UK leaves the European Union.
Alston Asquith’s data protection lawyers are able to advise clients on how best to achieve their strategic objectives whilst complying with this evolving regulatory regime. We highlight gaps in compliance and assist with the implementation of the policies and procedures needed, as well as dealing with any incidents that may occur.
As a firm we advise organisations of all sizes on data protection and privacy issues, from start-ups to large corporate entities across most sectors. Whether you require short-term crisis management support, or a global program tailored to satisfy international data protection authorities, our clients receive pragmatic, practical and cost-effective solutions.
We also have expert solicitors in outsourcing, employment, litigation and corporate law who are able to advise on a range of data protection issues.
