IT Outsourcing


It seems reasonable to assume that privacy and personal data protection require attention in order to reduce the risks associated with outsourcing services.

While outsourcing remains important for business, many companies are struggling to determine what, if any, part of their operation they can outsource, and to which suppliers. Protecting personal data is often put forward as a barrier that impedes or delays successful outsourcing.

Overcoming this barrier is often beyond companies due to the inherent complexity involved. Failure to implement privacy and data protection correctly can result in severe legal, economic and brand image penalties. Legal consequences have ranged from liabilities and fines to a ban on processing personal data.

Also the costs of reactive restoration and mitigation following a privacy incident are significantly higher than proactive privacy investments. Companies suffering from privacy and data protection incidents lead to a loss of customer trust, resulting in reduced business or customers opting instead for a competitor’s service. What should an organization do in order to preserve the business case for outsourcing? What should be considered before outsourcing personal data? Our seasoned privacy and data protection legal experts are at your service to eliminate hurdles and enhance your core business.
