How can we help?
We have advised on personal data protection issues ever since regulation was introduced. We have thorough knowledge of the legislation and its interpretation – and not least, we know how to apply regulations to our clients’ businesses to the effect that theory translates into practice.
We advise businesses within all industries. At the moment, our most sought-after competences include whistleblowing schemes and policies, online gathering of sensitive customer information and international marketing campaigns subject to compliance with regulation in more countries.
Our clients are both Danish businesses and international groups headquartered or with subsidiaries in Denmark. At the moment, businesses within the finance, IT and health sectors make up a substantial part of our client portfolio.
Personal data protection is a fast-developing field. We stay up to date on the latest trends through our membership of several international networks and fora.
Following the global digital and online development, the protection of personal data has become a growing priority. However, many companies and public authorities find personal data regulation complex, restrictive and difficult to employ in practice. This is particularly true among international businesses as they must establish a common corporate personal data practice in addition to complying with the legislation of different jurisdictions.
Such challenges are likely to increase in the near future. Within the EU, a new personal data regulation is work in progress which will replace the current personal data directive. The implementation date of this new regulation as well as its final wording is still to be decided. However, the regulation is expected to impose more stringent requirements on businesses and to tighten the present sanctions in Denmark to be imposed on companies failing to comply with the regulation.
