Andrew Solomon, senior associate in our corporate and commercial and data protection teams, was quoted in CDR Magazine regarding the increasing importance of data protection compliance for in-house counsel since the GDPR.
"the report highlights the increasing importance of data protection compliance since the GDPR came into force in May last year”.
"In our experience, in-house counsel are acutely aware of the potential risks associated with failing to comply with the GDPR, but require assistance in identifying material areas of non-compliance within their organisations. Our role is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the client’s data processing activities, identifying material gaps in compliance and then advising on how to plug those gaps.”
