Personal data protection

The digital age raises new challenges related to the protection of privacy and personal data. Protection of personal data will become even more important after 25 May 2018 when the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will start to apply in all member states of the European Union. Compliance with the new regulation will be mandatory to all organisations, which process data related to natural persons. The new framework is ambitious, complex and strict.
The Ellex Valiunas data protection team has approached the new rules with a practical mindset. We aim to provide not only suggestions to our clients in terms of particular actions to be taken now but also advice how to ensure data protection compliance in their activities in the future.
The law firm Ellex Valiunas has more than 10 years of consulting experience in the field of data protection. We have assisted numerous clients with preparing their privacy policies, ensuring implementation of local data protection requirements and providing solutions in case of risky data processing operations. Our team helps our clients to identify where data protection challenges lie and, more importantly, how to deal with them in a responsible and effective manner.
The Ellex Valiunas data protection team is ready to render assistance in the following aspects:
  • To evaluate possible risks of personal data processing in your organisation;
  • To prepare tailor-made GDPR compliance actions for your organisation;
  • To suggest solutions to any challenge related to personal data processing and to advise in case of a data breach.
