Cyber Attacks, Data Hacks, Privacy Breaches

For businesses large and small, privacy breaches can have dire consequences and from 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will sanction fines for breaches of either 4% of your business’s global turnover or up to €20million – whichever is greater. Could your business really cope with such a hit? This could have very serious consequences for your business; our specialist solicitors can help.

Statistics:

So what is happening?

Following a number of high profile breaches: there is now a greater awareness. There are now plenty of IT companies getting on board with this. More and more are developing specialist teams of ‘White Hat’ hackers, who can ‘stress-test’ your systems and check for weaknesses, while insurance companies now offer ‘cyber policies’ for your business to purchase. But with the looming spectre of GDPR on the horizon, you will be required to SHOW that your business is compliant, whether as a data controller or data processor.

Data impact and privacy assessments

We will spend time with your business to go through your requirements to ensure compliance with the regulations. Data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) assist your business to identify the most compliant ways to fulfil its data protection obligations and meet individuals’ expectations of privacy. They are integral to an organisation’s approach to privacy by design. Further, the GDPR sets out those circumstances in which it is mandatory for a DPIA must be carried out.
