Data Protection – can employers still monitor employees’ communications in light of Barbulescu v Romania?
Data protection is an issue that cannot be ignored, especially ahead of the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018. Our highly experienced data protection team advises on a broad range of complex data protection issues.
The significance of data protection continues to grow and raises issues of fundamental importance to individuals, businesses and organisations.
The financial and reputational damage caused by a data breach can have devastating consequences to businesses and organisations. Meanwhile, the breach of an individual’s information rights can have a significant impact upon their personal and professional lives.
Kingsley Napley helps individuals and business negotiate this complicated area of law, ensuring personal data is protected and helping to manage the consequences when it is not.
Our specialist team advises in a wide range of circumstances including:
We also advise on all aspects of compliance and policy development and enforcement.
There is a myth that data security is only the responsibility of a few people in the organisation responsible for IT. That is not the case. Data protection policies should make it clear that the protection of personal and sensitive personal data is the responsibility of all staff, and this is not just limited to electronic information. It is important to remember that people are still the greatest single reason for data security breaches.
Dealing with a data breach of any nature can carry significant risks, whether you are an individual or a business. We will work closely with you to develop a deep understanding of the issue and what you hope to achieve, advising you of an appropriate approach and the likely outcomes.
Our data protection team comprises individuals from a wide range of disciplines including public law, employment, corporate and commercial, criminal litigation, immigration, and regulatory, providing you with properly targeted, well-rounded and expert advice.
