The Privacy team of Pels Rijcken
Privacy and the protection of personal data is a theme that is currently in the spotlight. And rightly so. The increasing digitalisation not only brings convenience but also carries risks. Examples include data leaks and ransomware which are currently reported extensively in the media. The necessity to protect personal data is becoming ever greater and the national and European legislature are giving this their full attention. Thus a duty to report data leaks has recently been introduced. In the meantime, it has also been established by means of the new General Data Protection Regulation, which is the defining new legislative framework for privacy, that this will apply throughout the entire EU in two years time.
With a team of experts in administrative law, IT and employment law, Pels Rijcken has been able to identify all the changes and requirements of the regulation for public authorities and companies. We know what actions will be necessitated by the legal and regulatory framework. Our Privacy team will assist you for example in creating a comprehensive and well-supported policy, developing the corresponding protocols and drawing up contracts including data processing agreements. We would like to discuss the privacy aspects within your organisation and explain the new privacy requirements in a way that is clear and manageable. This will provide you with all the information you need to deal with the changes without the risk of nasty surprises later on.
