Today, larger amounts of information than ever before are processed, stored, communicated and reproduced, putting data protection at the core of today's digitalized world. Our lawyers are versed in the various legal issues arising from the processing of personal data as the currency of social media and the fuel for new technologies - from big data to wearables, from internet-of-things to profile-based advertising – and they are well equipped to assist clients to take advantage of the opportunities and to handle fast-changing legislation and risk. Adapting promptly to new legislation and taking the initiative in data protection compliance is a clear business advantage as the trend is shifting to making companies accountable for the whole life-cycle of personal data processing.
