Data & cyber

Almost every business today handles commercially sensitive information, personal data or big datasets. Businesses are also increasingly adopting AI technologies, which introduce their own risks and governance opportunities.

At a time when regulators around the world are keeping a close eye on data protection standards and planning further regulation concerning the use and transfer of sensitive data, data governance and AI, it's essential you stay ahead of major changes to protect your business. Appropriate data handling and a robust cyber security strategy are also crucial to avoiding risk and reputational damage as cyber attacks continue to increase around the world.

Our specialist Data Protection and Cyber team is one of the biggest in Europe and has over 20 years of experience helping businesses solve their data and cyber challenges. We act for a range of clients at the heart of the data economy, helping them navigate the legal challenges that come with technology, data, and its transfer across borders.

This includes advising on the digital regulatory environment developing across Europe in the shape of the Data Governance Act, Data Act and AI Act, as well as data space regulation like the European Health Data Space, Finance Data Space, NIS 2, Cyber Resilience Act, DORA and the rules in the UK.

We can help you handle:

  • the implementation and maintenance of GDPR
  • the development of new digital business models and products to meet privacy by design requirements
  • the set-up and support for data protection and AI governance schemes
  • the review of new products and services for privacy and AI compliance (data protection impact assessments/fundamental rights impact assessments)
  • group company data protection issues 
  • employment data protection (including negotiations with work councils)
  • online and adtech compliance
  • children's privacy issues
  • consumer data protection compliance 
  • international data protection projects (global legal roll-out of services and products)
  • data security breaches, including cyber attacks and breach response advice
  • breach ready training so you're prepared in the event of a security incident
  • proceedings and investigations with Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) 
  • the drafting and negotiation of complex privacy agreements
  • cross-border data transfers (including Binding Corporate Rules)
  • data subjects rights.

We'll provide you with real world risk management and insight gained through our longstanding relationships with national regulators across Europe and worldwide, so you can operate your business in confidence.
