Expert Advice to Help You Protect Your Organisation

Our experience in the education, technology, healthcare, local government and charity sectors means that we frequently advise on complex data protection issues, such as:

  • data protection breaches and complaints
  • subject access requests and other rights
  • data sharing
  • information security
  • privacy notices
  • workforce monitoring
  • CCTV
  • international transfers
  • data protection policies and procedures

Complaints to the Information Commissioner and Data Breaches

Individuals are increasingly exercising their right to complain to the data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). More serious data breaches are also self-reportable to the ICO.

The ICO has the power to fine organisations 4% of their annual worldwide turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater) for serious breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018.

We have considerable expertise and experience in helping our clients to manage ICO investigations and have a proven track record of avoiding the more serious penalties, such as large fines.


Subject Access Requests and Other Rights

Individuals are granted a number of rights under the GDPR, including the right to obtain a copy of the information that you hold about them and the right to have certain information deleted. In most cases, it is free of charge to exercise these rights and we have seen an increase in the number of individuals doing so. We can advise you on how to manage these requests in a way that protects your interests whilst still complying with data protection law.


Training

Training staff on their data protection responsibilities is an essential part of your organisation's data protection compliance. We can offer a variety of types of training to suit your requirements.


Freedom of Information Law

We also advise on freedom of information law (including the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations).

We provide data protection advice nationally via our offices based in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham.
