Data Privacy

At the onset of the Data Privacy Act and with the subsequent passing of its Implementing Rules and Regulations, our firm was at the helm, actively coordinating with the National Privacy Commission to address the concerns of several clients in different industries when the law and its enforcement was still young. Now, the firm assists its clients, keeping them updated with the latest developments and ensuring continued compliance, not only with the Data Privacy Act, but with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We draft company policies and rules that strengthen the internal processes to prevent any data breach and to place mechanisms to guarantee effective and timely reporting of the same. We review and draft contracts between data controllers and data processors to ensure mutual compliance and security of data subjects and their personal information. We perform audits of current systems and provide guidance in improving the same. We provide trainings and seminars to our clients’ data protection officers, managers, and employees, giving them the necessary knowledge and tools as to their responsibilities and rights under the Data Privacy Act.
