How JMW Can Help

The current landscape has the potential to be a perfect storm for businesses when it comes to data management. There is more data held by companies than ever before, combined with growing levels of public awareness of their own rights relating to personal data. 

This means businesses now have to deal with growing numbers of SARs, with growing levels of complexity, which requires effort, knowledge and skill to navigate. A failure to navigate these challenges could lead to exposure to costly compensation claims and/or ICO enforcement action, or even sharing sensitive data inadvertently. 

At JMW, we will help you deal with SARs, improving your management systems and processes, reducing the time and resources required for your company to handle them, and reducing your exposure to risk. 

We will help you understand:

  • Your obligations
  • Exceptions and refusals
  • Exemptions
  • Where SARs may be a precursor to litigation

We have many years of experience ensuring our clients are compliant with strict data protection regulations and have futureproof strategies in place. 
Our team is headed by leading solicitor Toni Vitale, who has over 15 years of in-house experience and has assisted clients on a wide range of privacy and cyber security issues, including regulatory and compliance investigations, data monetisation and data breaches. 

He has advised on GDPR, net neutrality, and other complex topics, consulting with the Home Office, NTAC, and other high profile bodies. In addition, he has given evidence to a Joint Committee of Parliament on the Data Communications Bill.
