Data Privacy & Cyber Risk | Data Protection law firm Ireland - A&L Goodbody

Data Privacy & Cyber Risk


The GDPR A Guide for Business

Our international Data Privacy & Cyber Risk practice group, which is made up of a cross-disciplinary team of highly experienced professionals, help our clients navigate the complex and ever-changing set of laws, regulations, industry standards and corporate governance requirements relating to the collection, storage, and use of data in Ireland.

We provide advice across the entire life-cycle of data security and privacy concerns, from pre-incident advice and policy formation, to legislative and regulatory compliance. Our practice group is divided into two, independent but related, specialisms:

From managing data privacy and data protection, to responding effectively to litigation and regulatory investigations stemming from data security incidents and data privacy breaches, our Data Privacy & Cyber Risk group is a market leader in these areas. We are the first Irish law firm to have established a dedicated and experienced Cyber Risk team, and have acted on a number of the highest profile data breach incidents in Ireland, and with international advisers in Europe.

We have also advised a number of multinational clients on the establishment of data centres in Ireland. We regularly advise on the management of European data through Ireland and Irish subsidiaries, and the legal and regulatory advantages of doing so.

We advise clients (public and private) in relation to the Freedom of Information regime as recently reformed in Ireland by the Freedom of Information Act 2014.
