• ‘Super responsive in times of crisis. Sound, practical advice with in-depth knowledge of the subject matter.’ ― The Legal 500 (2022)

    Data Protection law is a rapidly evolving area and one of increasing importance for all businesses, organisations and government entities that collect, transfer or process sensitive or personally identifiable information. Breaches of information security can be high profile and can damage public trust and confidence.

    RDJ can help you prepare, react and safeguard your reputation and that of your clients. Our multidisciplinary Cyber and Data Protection Team have significant technology, privacy, regulatory, media, employment and dispute resolution expertise and offer a sophisticated approach to data protection, compliance and data breach notification.

  • Advisory

    We advise clients on legislative compliance, including the preparation and implementation of privacy policies, procedures, statements and agreements to ensure their operations are compliant with data protection, e-privacy and cyber security requirements.

    We provide practical advice to assist with clients’ queries on matters such as the appropriate lawful basis for processing, the undertaking of Data Protection Impact Assessment, the collection and sharing of personal data including in the area of international transfers, the rights of data subject, workplace data protection, data security, engaging with supervisory authorities, and many more. We also regularly provide due diligence support for transactions and on the negotiation of agreements related to data privacy.

  • Data subject access requests

    We assist data controllers in meeting their obligations under data protection law to data subjects – both in implementation of policies and processes to deal with requests as they arise and in relation to end to end management of requests.

    Be it a DSAR, an erasure request or a complaint or claim, RDJ has the expertise, technology and the experience to support our clients.

  • Incident response

    RDJ offers a 24/7 Incident Response team with broad experience advising clients in the investigation, management and mitigation of cyber and data security incidents.

    Working with a bank of independent technical experts, we assist in breach containment, crisis management, forensic investigations, notification of stakeholders, data subjects and data protection authorities. In addition to advising clients on breach response, we also advise on regulatory investigations and claims arising out of privacy and security breaches.

  • Training

    Our team provide compliance training to a wide range of private and public organisations in relation to their implementation and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation, the Data Protection Act 2018 and all matters relating to privacy and security.

    We also offer proactive incident response training to help organisations ensure that, in a highly pressurised breach situation, their team are prepared to respond.
