Data protection / Privacy

New technology has increased the potential for personal data to be exploited for commercial or political purposes. At the same time, there is a strong European tradition for giving citizens control over their own personal data. Today’s data protection regulations have not kept pace with the enormous developments in the use of personal data that we have seen over the past 20 years. For this reason, the EU has adopted a new set of rules to protect our digital privacy, the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR.

What is the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

How can SANDS help?

“All enterprises that process personal data, even if it only involves their own employees, are covered by this regulatory structure. Don’t wait until information entitled to protection ends up in the wrong hands, or the Norwegian Data Protection Authority turns its attention to you, before you deal with this," says lawyer Katrine Malmer-Høvik at SANDS.
