As more of our daily lives go online and the data we share is used in new and innovative ways, privacy and security have become important trust and reputation issues. For businesses, the growing volume and sensitivity of information being shared, stored and used is driving demand for greater transparency about how such information is being protected and managed. As a result, data security and privacy have moved from the backroom to the boardroom. Data breaches and privacy missteps now regularly make headlines and are a focal point for social media discussions and legislation worldwide. Failure to communicate on these important issues can damage business by eroding trust, tarnishing brand and reputation, as well as undermining competitiveness.

Our Data Security & Privacy team helps organisations of all sizes and across sectors navigate the increasingly complex environment surrounding the collection, use and protection of corporate and personal data. We help organisations prepare for and manage communications around a data breach or cyber-attack. Through developing comprehensive communications plans and processes, we help companies communicate quickly and thoughtfully following a data incident. We also work with companies across a variety of sectors to proactively plan and train against likely security and privacy issues, influence the policy agenda and define leadership positioning.
