Information has become a valuable asset to corporations, and the law puts pressure on corporations to ensure the security of data in their possession. As the importance of data privacy grows, compliance has come to the forefront of many corporations that process personal data. The Firm has been engaged by several corporate clients to conduct a data privacy compliance audit or privacy assessments, as they may require. We have performed audits on educational institutions, fast-moving consumer goods companies, mining companies, homeowner’s associations, and operators of online and digital platforms.
Similarly, the Firm has advised several clients on personal data breaches and security incidents, and compliance with reporting requirements. We also regularly review and draft data transfer agreements, cross-border arrangements, privacy policies, and manuals.
The Firm was the pioneer of the country’s first criminal prosecution for data privacy breach.
