GDPR – Data Privacy

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018 and aims to harmonise data protection rules and enforcement across the EU. The GDPR is designed to further protect the personal data of individuals, and imposes a stricter regime than under the present law.

Organisations need to be aware of their obligations under the GDPR and ensure that they are fully compliant, particularly in light of the new, higher penalties for infringements. Our highly experienced lawyers advise on a broad range of data protection issues and can assist you in complying with the new law.

Druces can advise on:

  • data protection compliance projects, including reviewing your information handling policies and procedures, and updating privacy notices;
  • negotiating contractual provisions addressing data protection and privacy;
  • employment-related data matters;
  • the exercise of individual data rights, including subject access requests;
  • data retention issues and policies;
  • regulatory enquiries;
  • data privacy issues arising out of acquisitions and divestments;
  • legality of international transfers of personal data.

Druces can also support your organisation in the event of a data breach. The financial and reputational damage to a business following a breach can be severe, and Druces will work closely with you to formulate the best approach in dealing with affected individuals and the Information Commissioner’s Office.
