Data Protection

Privacy Law - GDPR: It’s all about being informed you know?

Data Protection

You don’t have to go far to read about the complexities of being non-compliant with GDPR principles. “Explicit Consent”, “Personal Data”, “Sensitive Personal Data”, “Appropriate Security Measures”, “Standard Contractual Clauses”, “Privacy Shield”, “Data Controller” and “Data Processor” are all terms frequently encountered when discussing the GDPR. While all terms are worthy in their goals, they can prove tedious and difficult to decipher for businesses.

Cunningham Solicitors is uniquely placed from a legal and technical perspective to help your organisation demystify these concepts and take control of its obligations under the GDPR.

Compliance starts with understanding the data protection legal regime and where your organisation’s business processes fit within that regime. The key to compliance is understanding what is required. For example, with the increase in IT outsourcing, controller/processor agreements are crucial to being and compliant with the GDPR.
