Data Protection, Privacy and Cybersecurity

Protect your company by maintaining high levels of information security and privacy.

Our Team has solid and extensive experience in monitoring public and private entities on the various topics that result from the practical application of the regulatory standards of the new digital economy.

Data protection has recently gained visibility with the entry into force of European legislation, in particular, with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Ensuring the respect and safety of each individual’s fundamental right to the privacy of personal data has become a matter with impact on companies and public entities’ management.

These new rights entail imply profound changes to the approach of companies and public entities' management of personal data in their possession.

Compliance of companies and public entities with the new data protection, privacy and cybersecurity legal frameworks, represents both a challenge and an opportunity.
