Data Protection & Privacy Optimization

Our goal is to help our clients confidently navigate the complex landscape of data protection and privacy, and ensure that they protect their sensitive data while still being able to effectively operate their businesses.

One Global Privacy Offering

Global streamlined efforts to mitigate data-privacy and data-protection risks

With ever-changing local laws, policies, and definitions, integrated data-privacy solutions for legal-support are the best way to structure the global Data-Privacy programs. Our global team can ensure you receive both corporate and global support, whilst ensuring local business units are covered using our local counsel.

Administrative & Corporate Support

FLI lays the foundation of your data protection program by drafting data transfer agreements, including intra-group and vendor specific DTAs, supplementing these with standard contractual clauses where applicable, performing Transfer Risk Assessments and codifying of ongoing Technical and Organizational Measures.

Gap Analysis & Remedial Measures

We identify and address any shortcomings in your data protection and privacy practices. We begin by conducting a thorough review of your current data management practices via a global questionnaire, we then identify any gaps or vulnerabilities in these practices and develop and implement customized solutions to address these issues.

Global Compliance & Risk Horizon Scanning

FLI helps you anticipate and prepare for potential data protection and privacy risks looming on the horizon by regularly monitoring and identifying emerging trends and threats in the data protection and privacy landscape, assessing the potential impact of these risks on your business and developing and implementing strategies to mitigate these risks.

Stakeholder Management

Our dedicated project team will engage the relevant stakeholders to optimize the implementation and launch of the data protection program. This often involves liaising with internal decision-makers and enablers, meeting with local subsidiary managers to fulfil initial gap-analyses, establishing an optimal path to transfer files from legacy counsel, among others.

DPO Appointment & Servicing

As experts in data protection and privacy law, we have the knowledge and experience to assist businesses in identifying the statutory need for a DPO and selecting the right individual for the role. Our local counsel are well equipped to serve as your external DPOs, overseeing and advising you on all your data processing activities.

Reactive Measures & Breach Response

FLI Team helps you quickly and effectively address any data breaches that may occur, assisting with an initial investigation of the scope and impact of the breach, notification of affected individuals and regulatory authorities, and developing and implementing a plan to prevent future breaches.
