Our global economy is a direct result of the digitalization of business and our ability to leverage data. This power has also created a potential for misuse of sensitive and personal data. Born of this potential, and actual misuse, regulatory agencies have unleashed a wide array of regulatory action worldwide, most recently with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These regulations vary by jurisdiction, and are complex. Through the mass adoption of websites, companies now can easily offer goods and services internationally. This makes implementing privacy policies to comply with the various jurisdictions’ regulations a complicated undertaking. The consequences of a misstep can be serious: heavy fines, injunctions, government audits, even criminal liability.
In our Privacy & Data Security practice, we take an interdisciplinary approach, partnering with experts in IT process creation, audit and implementation to deliver sophisticated internal and external privacy policies.
