          Data Protection Risks

          Data protection is of fundamental importance to the insurance sector. Its status as a regulatory priority has never been higher. Public awareness of data protection rights is at an all time high and GDPR's stringent obligations and enhanced rights are already being tested.

          Our expertise in the practical application of data protection law in areas such as claims departments, underwriting and supplier management sets us apart.

           

          What we do

          From advising on GDPR compliance and defending civil claims for damages, through to drafting data protection policies, procedures and guidance documents, identifying and defending opportunistic claims for distress, advising on the appropriate application of exemptions, managing data breach notifications and data subject rights as well as advising in relation to complaints, including communications from the ICO, our approach is distinctively commercial, practical and focused on getting you the results you need.

           

          How we do it

          We have particular expertise in dealing with data protection issues arising from niche areas such as fraud, financial crime, profiling or telematics as well as strategic projects including handling supplier due diligence, audit & oversight, Data Protection Impact and Legitimate Interest Assessments and delivering bespoke data protection training.

          Understanding data protection and insurance

          To help you safely navigate data protection risks we have assembled a specialist team of legal experts that are each on hand to provide practical data protection advice & services, tailored to the insurance sector.
