  • Compliance: Lawyers can advise organisations on compliance with laws and regulations on data privacy and cybersecurity
  • Incident response: Lawyers can advise on developing and implementing incident response plans to help them quickly and effectively respond to data breaches and cyber attacks
  • Litigation: Lawyers can represent organisations in court in the event of a data breach or cyber attack, and help them navigate the legal process and defend against any legal action taken against them
  • Contractual matters: Lawyers can review and draft agreements, such as terms and conditions, privacy policies, and service agreements, to ensure that the company's obligations and liabilities are well-defined and in compliance with prevailing regulations
  • Data governance: Lawyers can help organisations establish and maintain data governance policies and procedures to ensure that personal data is handled, stored, and processed in accordance with data protection principles
  • Employee education: Lawyers can provide training and education to employees on data privacy and cybersecurity issues, and help them understand their legal obligations under relevant laws and regulations
