Data Breach Lawyers

Data Breach Lawyers

Organisations store and process a lot of personal data regarding their customers, employees and stakeholders. Unfortunately, despite putting robust measures in place, data breaches can occur, whether accidentally or as a result of malicious behaviour.

If your organisation becomes aware of a data breach, our specialist lawyers can help you identify and contain the issue quickly, ensure that all relevant stakeholders are informed appropriately and advise on any claims that may arise.

A Joined-Up Approach

The team are well known for supporting clients who have suffered large scale data breaches.

We have a track record in achieving the best possible outcome for our clients who have suffered a data breach. This may be successfully arguing that an ICO fine should be reduced or helping the client to make the case to the ICO that the circumstances of the breach do not justify a fine.

Our data breach lawyers work collaboratively with sector specific experts from other departments within VWV. If one of our charity clients suffers a data breach then not only does our advice cover data protection obligations but we also advise on charity law issues (for example, whether the breach needs to be reported to the Charity Commission as the principal regulator for most charities). Our Regulatory Compliance team will also advise on the charity's obligations to individuals whose personal data has been compromised, which is particularly important to clients who work with children or vulnerable people.

In addition to assisting clients with the management of data breaches, we are also often asked to assist clients improve their processes to help prevent breaches from happening in the first place. We run workshops and data breach scenarios for clients in order to 'stress test' their data protection breach plan.
