Our Data Protection team provides legal advice, both on a national and international scale, on all aspects of privacy and data protection. Our services within this practice include conducting global audits and assessing data protection status, preparation of risk and impact assessments, as well as assistance in implementing data protection and information security policies at our clients’ organizations.
Magnusson advises on outsourcing of data processing, transferring data to third countries (outside the EEA), and data processing in cloud-based systems. We draft various documents (contracts, consent clauses, information texts etc.), participate in negotiating agreements, and represent our clients before national data inspection boards and administrative courts.
Magnusson’s Data Protection team is supported by our Intellectual Property and Technology experts to ensure provision of comprehensive, state-of-the-art support.
Magnusson’s Data Protection team provides tailor-made services to assure compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have extensive experience in assisting our clients on all aspects of GDPR implementation, such as conducting GAP analyses, holding seminars for management and employees, creating data processing policies, drafting, reviewing and updating agreements as well as information texts. The team collaborates with various IT companies (IT consultants, providers of big data analytics etc.) to provide clients with solutions.
The GDPR comes into effect in each EU Member State as of 25 May 2018. The new regulation places higher demands on organizations that process personal data and the sanctions for non-compliance are greatly increased.
The fines envisaged in the GDPR for non-compliance with the new requirements may amount to 4% of the total worldwide annual revenue or EUR 20 million.
