In a digital era, personal and confidential information is always susceptible to data breaches, leaks and even outright theft. It’s never been easier or quicker for unscrupulous outsiders (and even insiders) to obtain information now that so much of who we are, what we do, and what we say is digitised.
Madgwicks advises on the full range of privacy and security issues that could impact your organisation, including compliance obligations, privacy complaints and breach events and access to information requests. Our capability includes extensive experience advising on overseas privacy and data security compliance matters including in the United States, UK and EU under the GDPR regulations.
We regularly prepare customised privacy policies, privacy impact assessments and information handling policies which comply with the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
On regulatory matters we advise clients on privacy, SPAM, data security and document retention matters. This regulatory advice extends further to cover the advent of social media and we are often called upon to advise on managing the internal and external legal risks associated with social media.
Your business can get peace of mind with a comprehensive privacy audit. The Madgwicks’ Technology team has conducted audits for businesses in a number of industries and can advise you on your best course of action to prevent incidents and ensure you’re legally compliant if there is a privacy breach.
