In the event of a data breach, it is crucial to take prompt and decisive action aimed at mitigating the negative impact for the data subjects as well as subsequent (financial) consequences for your organization. There are strict legal time-limits to observe and any reputational damage suffered should be limited as far as possible. Our advice will enable your organization to optimally design and implement its incident response procedure. This includes practical assistance when the mandatory notification obligation comes into play and strategic advice with regards to effective communication with the data protection authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens) and data subjects (such as clients, employees or patients).
We help organizations respond appropriately to requests, investigations, or enforcement actions by the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, with a view of protecting their commercial interests and reputation. This support can be provided from the outset of your organization’s first contact with the data protection authority. Your benefit is our considerable expertise and experience in this area which will enable you to make the right decision.
