Data Risk Management

We live in an age where data are extremely valuable assets used to drive growth and which are often directly monetized to generate revenue for companies. Given the value of data, there is an inherent risk of your data being compromised by unauthorized access. Cybersecurity (i.e. the practice of protecting IT systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks) is crucial to protect data and information. Data breaches resulting from the unauthorized access and/or retrieval of data impacts businesses severely and may result in loss of consumer trust and exposure to penalties under the Personal Data Protection Act.

We assist clients in the management and mitigation of data breaches by preparing data breach contingency and management plans; and also represent clients in hearings before the Personal Data Privacy Commission.

IP Protection for Data

Data can often by protected by the law of confidential information and trade secrets. We can assist you by identifying your data assets, and developing a comprehensive protection program to secure and protect your data assets against the risk of leakage, theft and misuse.
