Gorvins and Corporate-Commercial Partner Christian Mancier featured in Legal Innovation section of The Times this week discussing data protection and various issues at hand. With the endless and rapid expansion of new technology, straightforward tasks such as storing data are becoming problematic.
Christian spoke to The Times in regards to such data protection issues, the recent spate of cyber attacks, intellectual property and likely future regulation of this area.
Christian pointed out, “The forthcoming Europe-wide overhaul of the data protection regime, which is expected to come into force in 2017, will introduce a universal obligation to report all data breaches ‘without undue delay’.
“With general counsel often being ultimately responsible for data protection issues, the thought of having to notify every data breach each time an employee or contractor mislays a laptop or memory stick, or sends something to the wrong address, e-mail or fax will be causing general counsels all over Europe to wake up in a sweat in the middle of the night.”
