Technology is no longer just for technology companies. In the modern business environment, companies often require assistance in relation to technology contracts and data protection compliance throughout their business lifecycle. Just as cyberspace has no borders, many companies also provide goods and services to customers throughout the world, and in doing so, often face compliance requirements in different jurisdictions. In view of the increasing demand for such services from our clients, our firm has developed a specialised practice in digital and data protection law.
Our Digital and Data Protection team have actively assisted clients with the drafting of technology-related contracts in relation to software licensing as well as agreements for the provision of cloud computing services such as Software as a Service (SaaS). Our clients include global software companies, Fintech and other technology start-ups.
We have assisted clients with the conduct of data protection gap assessments, data protection impact assessments and similar reviews and have regularly drafted data protection policies and consent notifications. Our lawyers frequently provide clients and their Data Protection Officers with training on data protection compliance. We have also assisted clients who have undergone data breaches, actively providing advice from the discovery of the initial breach through to representing clients in the course of investigations conducted by the Personal Data Protection Commission. To help clients navigate differing data protection frameworks in various countries, we actively coordinate with lawyers in various jurisdictions in order to help clients develop and implement policies and procedures which are globally or regionally compliant, so as to minimise their compliance risks.
