Data Privacy

We treat data as an asset.

With the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), everyone’s talking about data. We understand that the right approach to data privacy can be a real asset to your organisation. We also recognise the impact that good privacy practices can have on wider society.

We’re embedded in the sectors we service, particularly tech companies, charities and not-for-profits, and we understand  how the rules impact you. We keep on top of data protection authorities’ guidance.

We know that you need advice that lets you carry on doing what you need to do. We bring clear solutions and pragmatic guidance.

How we help

We help our clients navigate the requirements of data privacy while realising the opportunities. Beyond GDPR and e-privacy law, we advise on the Freedom of Information Act 2000, confidentiality and more.

Our approach is practical, efficient and commercial. We understand your objectives, advise on the data privacy compliance framework and the potential implications of using data.

We can support you with assessments, responses to requests and devising strategies for compliance. And if you’ve had a data security breach, we can assist straight away to support you.
