Privacy law

The legislation concerning the protection of personal data, the General Data Protection Regulation, the GDPR, is rather complex and one new development follows another. How do you know if your company/business model meets the privacy laws? Does your company have to take action or can you sit back and wait?

Our privacy team has in-depth knowledge of the GDPR and its implications for businesses, more particularly businesses focusing on the IT sector. We would be happy to advise you on all your questions on the subject – such as having the proper ground for processing personal data, applying the notions ‘privacy by design’ and ‘privacy by default’, entering into a processing agreement, drafting a privacy statement, performing a privacy impact assessment, preparing and maintaining a processing register, drafting internal procedures, helping you establishing whether you are a processor or a controller, establishing retention periods and creating awareness in your organisation of the GDPR and its implications.

Employment & privacy

The GDPR also has far-reaching consequences for your organisation where employment is concerned.
On the one hand, employment contracts, manuals, rules and regulations and codes of conduct must be adapted to the requirements set in the GDPR. On the other hand, employees must be continuously aware that their daily routine can be influenced by the GDPR and what the impact of this is or could be.
