Organisation

Adapt your organisation

The New Technologies/Intellectual Property team at CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats offers long-term advice and support in relation to management of your GDPR compliance.

 Appoint a DPO

If you are located outside the European Union you must appoint a representative, as well as a Data Protection Officer (DPO) if you process sensitive data or on a large scale. We can support your Officer with every aspect of this role.

Offer the right support

Every company must ensure its Officer has the resources needed to perform the role, which will include tasks such as providing information and advice, conducting audits, deciding to undertake privacy impact assessments and cooperating with the CNIL.

We work with you to find the most suitable structure for guaranteeing comprehensive and coherent protection for all personal data you process and help you implement an optimum management design.

Be represented

CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats can represent you when negotiating or handling any litigation with the French Data Protection Commission (CNIL)

Keep abreast of regulations

Providing your Officers with the necessary information and support is essential for the success of their role, which is why we will be publishing a special newsletter containing all the latest data protection news, both before and after the new regulation comes into force in May 2018.
