What we can do

Kosnahan Law offers a steady pair of hands in assisting and advising on Data Protection & Privacy related legislation, including the many rights and obligations which arise for individuals and businesses, whether under General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), Privacy Electronic Communication Regulation or associated rules.

As a qualified Data Practitioner (DP.TP), Kosnahan Law’s Managing Director has practical business experience in such matters through existing and previous appointments as Data Protection Officer for multiple businesses, including historically over many years for Tier 1 UK and Isle of Man regulated online gambling businesses, international customer call centres, property holding companies, fintech businesses and more.

Previous experience in these roles for regulated and private business, ensures timely and pragmatic advice to our clients on many of the daily Data Protection & Privacy matters which arise.

If you have a new product or service, Data Protection & Privacy considerations can be a minefield and need to be considered right from the start.  Do you require a Data Protection Registration? What data are you processing? Is it personal data or sensitive personal data? How and where will it be processed and by who? Do you have consent to such processing? Is it stored in the cloud? Is it encrypted at rest?  What happens if you receive a subject access request?  Do you have appropriate processes, policies and procedures in place? These are some of the many questions businesses of all sizes will need to consider.  At Kosnahan Law, we can help.
