Regardless of how robust information security your organisation have in place, you may still face a security incident that involves personal data. It can concern both unauthorized access, unlawful use, illegitimate disclosure or even loss of data. Our team of data protection lawyers provide proactive and practical advice along the way.

Proactive management of personal data breach

You can get our advice to prepare for a data breach incident. For instance, we can help you set up relevant processes and documentation for assessing whether the incident is of 'high risk'. Let us help you prepare your organization to discover and handle a data breach and notify the affected individuals and the relevant supervisory authority within the 72 hours set-out timeframe that the GDPR requires.

  • Setting up the organisation for data breach management
  • Developing the data breach policy
