If your company collects and uses information, you have a legal obligation to keep it safe. If you fail to do so, your business could be subject to claims for compensation.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect since May 2018 and compels businesses that collect and/or use personal data to take specific action to protect that data.
Should your company suffer a data breach, misuse personal data or share or sell it to another organisation, you may face serious consequences. Serious data breaches have the potential to result in identity theft and fraud and can have a severe and costly impact. Those who are affected by your failure to keep their data safe may be entitled to make a claim against you.
GDPR and data protection laws can be complicated but the team at Dillon Geraghty Solicitors LLP can provide you with expert advice if you are defending a data breach claim. We can also provide you with advice and support to help you comply with the GDPR and relevant data protection laws.
