On a serious note, we are extremely strong advocates of self-regulation. We strongly and deeply believe in the overarching impact of technology on law and society. It’s one thing to defend your business from unforeseen troubles and another to have an inherent cognizance to assess the impact of your data management. In the last few months, we have noticed that the companies that can ensure compliance with privacy legislation while preparing for the personal data regulation to enter into force, have been able to gain a competitive edge. In this regard Karm Legal can assist you with Data Flow Analysis (mapping of data procedures), Legal analysis and proposals for action, Identification of formal requirements – such as Privacy Impact Assessment reports and the need for a Data Protection Officer, Assistance with product specifications and contracts for future IT solutions, Practical guidelines –eg. how the company obtains consent, internal policies and documentation and any other areas drawing implications in this regard.
