I.T. Security – Data Breach

As all information is now stored in systems connected to the Internet, security breaches and intrusions cause more harmful consequences for companies and third parties.

The GDPR requires appropriate technical and organisational measures to be setup in order to guarantee data safety.

In certain situations, the legislation also requires data breaches to be notified to the regulatory authorities.

The legal processing of these urgent situations is mandatory as the initial remedial actions following the discovery of a data breach shall have significant consequences for the company.

The lawyers of FERAL-SCHUHL / SAINTE-MARIE regularly assists their clients in filing complaints, notifying data breaches to the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL), providing information to the relevant parties, compiling evidence and conducting litigation procedures.
