Data breaches represent a significant and growing risk to all businesses, regardless of size or industry.
Aside from the practical and reputational implications associated with a data breach, there are also legal repercussions as set out in the GDPR. These include a requirement on businesses to notify their data protection regulator and, in some cases, the individuals affected by the breach for certain types of breaches.
In the event of a personal data breach incident we provide rapid legal support to mitigate legal risk including compliance with reporting requirements, communications to data subjects, service providers and other stakeholders, and handling legal claims.
We are experienced in working with businesses of all sizes on the steps required to mitigate legal risk.
