STRICTER ENFORCEMENT AND INCREASINGLY SEVERE PENALTIES ARE MAKING PRIVACY AND DATA SECURITY A MORE SIGNIFICANT AREA OF FOCUS, AND RIGHTLY SO.
The proliferation of data brings significant responsibilities regarding the stewardship of the information. Today, many countries have enacted privacy and data protection laws and regulations that impact the creation, management, and transfer of information. While these requirements vary greatly across jurisdiction and industry, the global trend is toward stricter enforcement and the imposition of increasingly severe penalties for violations. Likewise, cyber-security threats must be taken seriously, as vulnerabilities can expose personal information, confidential corporate information, and national security secrets to the world.
Redgrave LLP helps clients address privacy and data security challenges. This includes helping corporations navigate the overlapping and sometimes competing legal requirements. We also work with clients to develop protocols for privacy breach responses and counsel clients when situations impact data security and privacy issues.
