The flow of information is the lifeblood of most businesses and is increasingly subject to Mark III privacy regulations (i.e. even more regulation). Data privacy (DP) regulation is not an issue for big businesses alone – it applies to all businesses and frequently places a disproportionate burden on small setups. Add to this the fact that DP regulation impacts every single function of a business and you have a recipe for an overarching body of regulation that can impose seemingly impossible compliance obligations.
The key, therefore, is balanced, proportionate and purposeful compliance responses. GLS can support all aspects of information law for any business. Our lawyers understand that the complexity of information laws may make it difficult for smaller companies without a dedicated legal team to fully comply with them. We revolutionise the legal market by providing access to top quality DP solutions at cost accessible levels for all businesses. Our growing global footprint allows us to provide effective counsel to managing the requirements of different legal systems and cultures.
DP regulation and compliance can appear overwhelming. A myriad of different laws have been implemented to ensure the integrity of information and to curb the misuse of the omnipotent Internet, e.g. data privacy laws, data disclosure and sharing regimes and even laws regulating e-commerce. These new regimes create complex issues that may, at first glance, seem difficult to address. However, this is far from the case if you are able to leverage the abundance of DP compliance experience that exists.
The team at GLS Law Firm has worked with a host of national and multinational companies in mitigating complex DP issues as they arise. The answers are invariably found in practice simplicity that can take hold at the cultural practice level. We can contribute a wealth of experience and out-of-the-box thinking to develop solutions that work – knowing well in advance which ones work and which ones do not.
