Data protection and IT

The ease of using technologies, the advantages they represent and the ability to improve information, production and service-provision processes create significant challenges for our privacy and data security. Data protection legislation continues to impose important requirements that companies must comply with, and compliance now involves the risk of high penalties. Protecting personal data and your company’s computer assets is not a formality. It is a dynamic process subject to strict controls.

This culture change in terms of transparency and the data management performed by our clients, employees and suppliers also involves evolution for legal consultancy. It is necessary to know the law, to be aware of the interpretations and limits courts impose, and, finally, to apply practice and experience to the needs and interests of the client. Companies have to respond with precision and agility at every stage of implementing their data protection policy and regarding their intangible assets.

We offer comprehensive advice in every area where personal data processing is essential for multinational companies, SMEs, start-ups operating in the technology and innovation sector, start-ups in general and organisations that manage significant volumes of sensitive data in their daily activities. We offer thorough advice on how to create a culture of data protection at our clients’ companies through user-friendly tools and methodologies.
