Our Privacy and Cybersecurity lawyers operate at the intersection of technology and law. We understand that data is one of your core assets, driving insights and enabling development of valuable new products and services.
However, the collection, use and storage of personal information is subject to an increasingly complex framework of laws and regulations in the US, EU, Canada, Asia and around the world. Monetary penalties for violating these laws are severe and reputational damage can be irreparable.
Leverage our knowledge of these requirements to design real-world strategies to unlock the power of your data while building trust in your brands. We work with you to enhance disclosures, strengthen compliance and implement integrated risk management programs that create a strong control environment as a springboard for innovation.
In addition to proactive counseling, we contribute our strategic insight when you need to respond to crises. For example, we work side by side with clients to manage data breaches by directing forensic analysis, remediating vulnerabilities, understanding legal requirements and coordinating communications with people whose information was compromised.
Our global Privacy and Cybersecurity group works across all sectors offering a full complement of counseling and advice, regulatory and litigation services.
In the lead-up to the now imminent coming into effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018, much focus has understandably been on what steps need to be taken to ensure compliance. However, for certain non-EU organisations, an alternative (and possibly more cost- and time-efficient approach) has been to explore what steps can be taken to help avoid falling within the scope of the GDPR altogether. Kelly Tymburski, head of Dentons' Telecoms, Media & Technology (TMT) group in the Middle East region, explores this in some further detail in this article.
Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA) came into force in 2012.

In 2016, the European Union Member States issued a new body of rules on data protection - the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, which will come into force on 25 May 2018.

It seems that we hear a report of an attempted or successful cyber crime in the news on a weekly basis. The increase of cyber crime is on the rise and this trend is alarming.
