Data protection and GDPR lawyers

With data and privacy laws constantly evolving, it’s vital for Australian businesses to understand their legal requirements. At Lancaster Legal, we are experienced data protection lawyers, providing support and advice for businesses in Geelong and Melbourne.

As well as the introduction of mandatory breach notification laws by the Australian Government, Australian businesses may also be impacted by the European General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, the Privacy Act and the Spam Act, among others.

Data protection is becoming a larger issue in an increasingly online world, and presents a risk to many businesses. Implementing thorough cyber security measures and incident response plans in the case of a data loss or privacy breach is a key part of maintaining compliance with data protection and privacy laws.

Lancaster Legal’s data protection and GDPR compliance lawyers provide tailored advice around:

  • managing data and personal information, including collection, storing, processing and sharing
  • complex commercial arrangements
  • GDPR compliance
  • Privacy Act and Spam Act compliance
  • preparing and implementing cyber security policies
  • how to act in a crisis, such as a hacking or data breach situation.

Please contact our data protection lawyers if you are unsure of your responsibilities surrounding data privacy and the GDPR.
