Certified Data Protection Practitioners
Our lead associate is fully qualified and certified as a Data Protection Practitioner. This means we can absorb the stress and hassle involved in creating and authoring the right policies and processes, making sure you understand the steps needed to be fully compliant.
Data Protection includes the following:
Protecting the data you hold is about to become more important than ever.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework. It has been described as “the biggest ever overhaul of data legislation”.
Data Protection Law
When your company collects or uses data, you have a legal duty of care to make sure it’s protected and used properly. If you fail to do this, those who have been affected by the data protection breach can claim compensation.
Our team is here to help you no matter where in Ireland you’re based.
