In this digital age, no business is immune to cyber risk. In the event of a `cyber breach` organisations also face the prospect of claims by third parties, for example for breach of contract, defamation, and data protection issues. The Information Commissioner also has the power to impose significant fines of up to £17.5 million or 4% of annual global turnover.
Our team provides practical, cost-effective advice which will allow you to stay in control and on the right side of data protection law, avoiding reputational damage, claims and fines when things go wrong.
