Our specialist team helps all kinds of businesses with their data security, from start-ups to multi-national organisations.
We have extensive experience in helping businesses make the most of their data as an asset. We advise on regulatory compliance, including in connection with emerging technologies, and on issues arising from breaches of cyber security or subject access requests.
Consumers are increasingly data-aware, and will expect you to be
Not only is there a regulatory need to comply with the relevant legislation, it is increasingly being seen as a commercial necessity.
How you manage the data created by your business presence and transactions is a growing factor in people’s purchasing decisions. Ultimately, it can win or lose a sale, and it also has a reputational influence.
Experts in the latest data protection legislation
Our specialist IP&IT team stays closely tuned to any developments in cyber security and data protection law, and knows how best to achieve compliance in the current regulatory landscape. We will also have insights into how its practical application might affect your business.
