Technology and Data Protection Case Studies

Case Study 1

We were asked by a client to help put in place an Information Governance Framework across their Group companies. We started by carrying out data audits of the companies concerned.

Once the results of the audits had been analysed (which involved checking the client’s key commercial contracts) we were able to determine the gaps across the organisation and its subsidiaries in order to implement policies and procedures to demonstrate compliance with data protection laws.

The project received overwhelming support from the organisations board of directors (which comprised of approximately 35 directors including stakeholders and members).

Case Study 2

Our client a large multinational looked to implement agreements with its other group companies in particular to transfer data outside of the EU.

We worked with lawyers and local regulators in various countries in order to ensure relevant data protection filings were made at local level.

The completion of the project was when all the clients’ different offices had been registered at local level with the local regulators; further when the data transfer agreements with the parent company outside of the EU had been entered into in order to allow transfer of data out of the EU. This project was completed very successfully.

Case Study 3

Our client a supplier of ODM mobile telephones and accessories asked us to help him negotiate his agency agreement with a large Chinese supplier. The products were to be supplied to a large network operator who was the largest in the country.

We assisted our client in negotiating the terms of the agreement with the Chinese supplier and in particular advised in respect of what would happen if the agreement were to be terminated and the impact of the Commercial Agent’s Regulations in protecting our clients long terms interests.
