Practice Area - Investing in Ireland
Privacy & Data Security
With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in May 2018, the landscape for Data Protection in Europe and Ireland changed substantially. Our team is highly specialised in this area and can steer those looking to invest in Ireland through all issues relating to data protection, privacy law and cyber-security compliance.
Privacy and Data Security is an area of constant concern and great importance for commercial organisations, institutions and public bodies in today's digitised economy.
While businesses are striving to be innovative with the use of advanced levels of technology, processes and frameworks must be implemented and risks must be proactively managed in order to ensure compliance with data protection and privacy law.
In addition, businesses are faced with a higher level of exposure to incidents relating to data and cyber-security breaches, which can result in serious financial and reputational damage for all types of businesses.
Our Team has experience in dealing with complex issues which may arise in this area, together with the knowledge and skills to foresee issues which may arise for businesses in the future.
We have extensive experience in this area, including the following:
- Data Protection
- Data Breach Incidents
- Advising a wide range of commercial clients in relation to the application of the GDPR to the day to day running of their businesses and identifying potential risks in terms of compliance.
- Advising a lending institution in relation to a data protection breach.
- Advising a European media company, which was the subject of a data breach, in relation to the recovery of significant funds.
