Data Protection law has been a hot topic for some time, but with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it has become a number one priority for the vast majority of organisations.
As data protection law continues to evolve, it is important both businesses and individuals are aware of how data protection can impact upon them, and more importantly, how to minimise this impact.
When it comes to the use of personal information, consumers are more aware of their rights than ever and the compensation they may be entitled to. Organisations need to be able to demonstrate that they are collecting personal information ethically and treating such data with diligence and care. Under the GDPR, gathering and storing personal data can quickly become a contentious issue for organisations, no matter the size or the industry they are in.
At Clarke Jeffers & Co. Solicitors we understand the complexities involved when dealing with data protection matters. We help clients understand the duties and responsibilities they have when it comes to GDPR compliance. We advise clients in the event of the misuse or mistreatment of personal data and have represented both individuals and companies involved in data breaches and our knowledge and expertise in this area is unrivalled.
“Many companies struggle with data protection compliance and there are many individuals who have experienced the misuse of their personal information at one time of another. With data protection matters growing ever more complex, we have made it a key focus for our firm.”
