We have advised various large organisations (including a FTSE 100 company and a Japanese IT multinational) on the steps they need to undertake to comply with data protection laws. With sanctions for breach of UK data protection laws now potentially including £500,000 fines, this is an issue that is important for both small and large companies.
Data protection compliance involves auditing relevant data processing and drafting and implementing data protection notices and consent and policies. This also involves advising on the steps necessary to address restrictions on international data transfers and how to manage data breaches. In addition we have advised our clients on the specific rules which provide a framework within which electronic marketing can take place.
