As an employer you are increasingly confronted with the term “privacy”. There is much complex legislation in the field of privacy, and it is constantly changing. Do you find it difficult to see the wood from the trees when it comes to international legislation and regulation? Our experts stand ready to assist you in terms of assurance that you are in compliance with all your obligations.
An ever increasing mass of legislation and regulation has been developed to ensure optimal protection of personal data. A comforting thought, since your own privacy is also at risk. Unfortunately, not only do many of the requirements complement each other but they may also conflict with each other. That makes it difficult and sometimes virtually impossible to comply with all of the regulations.
Problems can still occur even if you know exactly what rules need to be observed. For instance, are you in compliance with the rules on transferring personal data to foreign branches or external data processors? Knowledge of the rules and regulations is one thing – properly implementing them is something different entirely. How can you ensure that the data entrusted to you is adequately protected? Loss of data due to fraud or burglary can give rise both to significant claims and to damage to your reputation.
