Webinar: Data Privacy Summer Series

As organisations have had to face challenges they had never expected and adapt to an ever changing “new normal”, one constant has been the importance of data privacy. Data is one of the most valuable and important assets for all businesses, but it can also become a significant liability if it is not handled appropriately.  Whether it’s the discussion around track and trace apps, the increase in cyber threats or risks associated with new ways of working, the integrity and security of data is critical.

We are running a series of webinars over the course of the next few weeks where David Goodbrand, Head of Privacy, will be joined by specialists from across our practice areas who will discuss some of the key issues around data protection and the risks and opportunities it brings.
