“Personal data is the new oil of the internet and the new currency of the digital world.”*
In a digital context, the processing of personal data takes on a central importance for companies, at the same time presenting enormous contingencies. Nowadays, this applies transversally to different economic sectors, while personal data is a fundamental asset for companies. On the other hand, the impact that a security breach can have in terms of reputation and the myriad of applicable legislation on this matter (the forthcoming General Regulation on Data Protection will add to this complexity) call for the creation of rigorous compliance procedures for companies that process personal data.
CCA ONTIER’s Data Protection and Privacy team helps its clients understand their obligations and ensures that they fulfil the highest standards in terms of security and respect for privacy.
