Data protection and cyber security

As a result of the technological revolution businesses are finding it easier than ever to realise the value in data – but businesses need to be especially careful when using customer and employee data. At the same time, sophisticated attacks can leave a business with an existential issue.

Showing customers that you treat their data with respect and take the law seriously is a way to set your business apart from the competition. It can also avoid fines of up to 4% global turnover.

The IP and IT team advise on the latest developments in Data Protection law, compliance with the current regulatory landscape and how its practical application affects your business.

Recent work highlights include:

  • provision of workshops to advise and educate on the ICO, DPA and GDPR
  • advising national charities on data protection, retention and processing issues
  • conducting a data audit for a national marketing agency
  • advice and training provided to a regional tourism body on data protection compliance
