Data collection and data protection & privacy are the two sides of the same coin.
With the ever changing landscape, domestically as well as globally, due to the advancement of technology, we have to be careful with our personal data. The emphasis and focus on protection of personal data has increased manifold in the recent years.
The potential for misuse of sensitive personal information has triggered legislative and regulatory action worldwide. Privacy laws are continually evolving, vary by jurisdiction, are interpreted unpredictably, and are in a constant state of flux. Even the most compliant and conscientious company can make a false step as it captures, uses, transfers and discloses personal information.
These risks have led a growing number of clients to turn to our data protection & privacy team for help in adopting sound privacy and security practices, ensuring regulatory and legal compliance, and protecting themselves from the risk of being under the scanner for data breaches.
We advise and assist our clients with every aspect related to data protection & privacy, from formulating policies, addressing legal risks, identifying data breaches, providing solutions to data related issues, obtaining employee consents, advising on security measures to be adopted and helping clients move to a more comprehensive data protection law which is on the horizon.
