The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an unprecedented game-changer with extraterritorial reach that brings data privacy to the top of every multinational company’s cybersecurity agenda, no matter where it is based. Compliance is complicated, and you need a team that can traverse the legal terrain while keeping sight of your bottom line.
Alston & Bird’s Privacy & Security Team has been at the forefront of GDPR compliance since its implementation in May 2018. Our dedicated team has advised on every pertinent GDPR issue. Being GDPR compliant is crucial for your business—penalties for violating the GDPR can reach up to 4% of a company’s annual worldwide turnover.
We provide global privacy and security advice to market-leading enterprises worldwide, of all sizes, and in diverse sectors, including at least 10 companies in the Fortune 100, three of the world’s 10 largest companies (as ranked by Fortune) and a major cloud and analytics service provider. We have designed and are conducting comprehensive review programs specifically focused on GDPR compliance for four of the world’s leading multijurisdictional businesses.
Awareness is key. That’s why we created our own program, the Roadmap to the GDPR, a series of seminars featuring some of the key players in the privacy realm to speak to our clients about the potential pitfalls—and possibilities—the GDPR presents. We share our knowledge and engage outside experts to bring you up to speed on the latest developments so your team has the tools they need to be ready for what lies ahead. We also post timely GDPR-related updates to our blog here.
Based in the European Union’s capital, Brussels, and both U.S. coasts, our team is on call to tackle virtually any issue, anywhere, any time. You want to be proactive, stay ahead of the competition and be compliant with the GDPR. Alston & Bird is your guide.
