Data Protection


Security measures for data protection

All of us take our personal security very seriously – after all, when was the last time you left your house without locking your front door? Sadly the same can’t be said for the care we take about our personal data – both our own, and that of other people. But personal data is an integral and unignorable fact of life, and we need to ensure we’re taking care of it in both our personal and professional lives.


Do you need a DPA from subprocessors?

When it comes to GDPR compliance, contracts are some of the most powerful tools you have to show to regulators.

Four examples of data privacy programmes delivering more than privacy adherence

Reduced costs, new revenue streams, greater customer trust and new markets The best data privacy programmes are granular.

From that finite visibility, liabilities can be identified and appropriate remedies put in place that carefully balance the demands of the data subjects with the needs of the business.


Why Google's new privacy labels are important

When Apple released their privacy nutrition labels, it was seen as a key turning point in platform-level privacy. Even so, while Apple holds control of mobile device profits and industry mind share, they do not account for the majority of mobile devices globally—especially in developing countries. The iPhone is expensive, and therefor any of its privacy protections become a benefit only to those that can afford their devices.
