Privacy & Data

Privacy & Data

Back to Services

Management of privacy and data is now a core activity of any business.

Entities will be increasingly held to account by their consumers, shareholders and stakeholders for breaches resulting from ineffective or non-existent privacy and data policies. It is also becoming clear that directors and executives will no longer be able to plead ignorance when it comes to internal breaches of sensitive information.

Many businesses have good intent but are overwhelmed by the complexities of establishing robust practices and systems. Cowell Clarke can assist with all aspects of privacy and data management to enable clients to harvest their data for commercial benefit whilst maintaining ethical integrity.

We advise on a range of privacy and data related issues including security breaches and resulting stakeholder management, compliance with existing regulatory requirements, audits and stress testing of current internal systems, and advice on investigations from bodies such as the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), ASIC and the ACCC.
