We kick-off the autumn

Following the cessation of the restrictions, we launched the autumn’s first mini-event last week: GDPR – An introduction. The seminar, which we held on 29 September, was the first in our three-part series regarding the practical application of the GDPR. Naturally, it was a great experience to be able to host the first physical event in a long time and the seminar offered a lot of exiting questions and discussions. We have received good feedback following the seminar and it feels great that so many people appreciated the concept of the mini-events, where we offer both a lighter lunch and an one hour seminar. In particular, it feels great to be able to organise such events once more since our purpose with these events is to share our experiences and our know-how and thereby hopefully being able to help our participants’ organisations both in their proactive GDPR work but also in preparing for the day when a data breach occurs.

The first seminar focused on questions concerning how the regulations are to be applied based on the particular organisation’s risk profile, how the different roles in the GDPR interact with each other and how it is possible to simplify one’s interpretation of the regulations by viewing them in light of the foundational principles of the GDPR. In order to make the seminar more interactive, participants were encouraged to connect to a mentimeter-test which also included a competition in seven parts.

If you are interested in attending one or both of the remaining mini-events: GDPR Proactive – The art of preparing (27 Oct, 12:00 to 1:15 pm.) and GDPR Incident – When disaster strikes (24 Nov, 12:00 to 1:15 pm), do not hesitate to sign up here:

Welcome to Norelid Advokatbyrå’s Cyber Blog

We would like to welcome you to Norelid Advokatbyrå’s Cyber Blog where we are going to provide a lot of exciting updates regarding the dynamic cyber market and the activities of our Cyber Response Team. We will keep you up data with relevant news, the latest trends and we will of course share our Cyber Experts’ comments and thoughts regarding the latest happenings within cyber and data security.

Norelid Advokatbyrå has worked with our clients to provide legal assistance and recommendations regarding the GDPR and data privacy since long before the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulations entered into force in May of 2018. We have extensive experience and knowledge in the data protection/privacy practice area. We have built a full-service network with cyber security and IT experts, crisis management consultants and more, with local and international availability, which enables us to provide service of the highest level regarding incidents local to Sweden or with cross-border implications.

During the past few years, the demand of expert knowledge within GDPR, data protection and Cyber Risk, has been highly requested. Therefore, we decided a couple of years ago to put a lot of effort into this area which turned out to be a great success. We have divided the practice area “GDPR and Data Protection” into two sections, GDPR Proactive and GDPR Incident.

Through our service GDPR Proactive we provide organisations with support and advice to minimize the risk of processing personal data in an incorrect way. We help our clients to be compliant with the applicable regulations by ensuring that the client always has access to the right documents, policies, contracts, and other relevant routines to meet the demands of the applicable regulations, manage the contacts with the client’s insurance company and in general manage the incident wholistically under the circumstances in each individual case.

Through our service GDPR Incident we manage ongoing personal data breaches where we act as Incident Managers. As Incident Managers, we manage, coordinate, and facilitate the communication between all parties in the incident, draft such reports that is required by the Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection or other supervising authorities, manage any contacts with the affected client’s insurance company and take a holistic approach to the incident in general, considering the circumstances in each case.

To work in this practice area is not only exciting but also very gratifying as we are able to provide useful, concrete advise to our clients in an ever-changing environment. We would like to share our experiences with you as we believe that the best way for us to help client companies and others with their data protection and compliance is to share our knowledge and experience with as many people as possible. If you are interested in our work or in data protection in general, do not hesitate to follow us for more updates and tips and tricks that we hope will be useful for you and your organisation. Stay tuned!
