Data Protection and Compliance
The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, has brought a renewed focus on data protection for business in every industry, following the introduction of the Data Protection Act 2018.
All organisations are obliged to put processes in place for the purpose of data protection, and compliance is an ongoing issue rather than a one-off exercise.
As well as ensuring that new data is collected, processed and stored securely, all new business processes will also have to be risk-assessed for their potential effect on data security.

Thank you so much for your work; it is greatly appreciated. I can’t wait to get this situation resolved! Thank you again. We would be lost without you.
The expertise of Loch Law made me feel in very safe hands. Caroline was thorough in explaining the legal situation, giving clear advice and was committed to getting me a fair outcome
We have been incredibly thankful for having your support over the last few years and our clients have been very impressed with the help they have received from Pam Loch and the rest of the team. We cannot praise you highly enough.
Pam and her team are always on hand to expertly advise us on any employment law issues we have. The speed of their service levels combined with high-quality advice always exceeds our expectations and as a result, we have been a satisfied client of the firm for over 7 years. I would not hesitate to recommend Loch Law to any business.
It goes without saying my contacting you at the outset & getting your great advice gave me confidence through this upsetting episode.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help and please let whoever helps you get this out of the door know that I appreciate theirs too!
I cannot recommend Joe Milner at the Tunbridge Wells office highly enough. He was extremely helpful and reassuring, and settled my claim quickly and efficiently. What a delightful chap to do business with.

Thank you so much for your advice. I really appreciate the fact that you were able to understand the nature of our company and tailor your advice accordingly. I think that ability is key in defining a good lawyer. Lawyers who cannot deviate from 100% security are of little use.

The consequences of not complying with GDPR
Failure to comply with the legislation can result in very large fines, which can be up to 4% of a company’s global turnover or €20 million (whichever is the larger amount).
In addition to financial penalties, data security breaches can be disastrous for the reputation of a business – if a company is targeted by a hacker and customer data is leaked as a result, the subsequent PR challenge could affect your reputation, share prices and more.
Loch Law are also specialists in handling Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), and can take care of all parts of the response process for you.
