DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY LAW

According to IBM, 90% of the data in the world has been produced in the last two years alone. In order to take advantage of trends in artificial and business intelligence, businesses must legally acquire and use data and personal information.

At the same time, regulators around the world have been adopting increasingly severe and demanding laws protecting this data and personal information.

We have helped companies of all shapes and sizes – from small, entrepreneurial firms, to non-profits, to multi-nationals – update and implement their data collection and use practices, and to ensure their compliance with existing laws and regulations.

Through this process, where practical concerns such as user engagement and human resource limitations must be balanced with the requirements of the law, we help our clients better take advantage of the massive benefits of big (and small) data in a safer way.
