Data Protection & Freedom of Information

Back to TMC - Technology, Media & Communications

The challenges arising from data are countless and inescapable in our maturing technological landscape. To future-proof your organisation, and unlock opportunity from your data, you need alert and experienced lawyers who will deliver practical advice. Our team of experts have the requisite expertise and experience to provide practical advice and assistance to help you future proof your business in this critical area.

Our team is composed of experts in data protection and security, data loss and information management and can draw on our extensive experience in order to provide practical solutions for your business. 

What sets us apart is our specialist data protection sector expertise, particularly in highly regulated sectors like technology, media and communications, energy and utilities, healthcare and financial services.  

We are at the forefront of thought leadership in relation to the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI). We have advised clients extensively on its implementation and have provided guidance, updates and training on the implementation of POPI every step of the way.

Our team provides counsel across a wide range of areas including data protection registration and policy development, data security and mobile device encryption, data transfer procedures using model clauses and binding corporate rules, freedom of information requests, data subject access requests and resolving data protection issues arising from outsourcing projects. 

One-stop-shop

Clients turn to CMS to advise on global data privacy, protection and information security projects. Leading multinational companies, many of which hold large amounts of sensitive data and are heavily regulated, instruct us to advise on multi-jurisdictional projects.

Global AND local

Our teams are flexible in that they handle both large multinational projects but can also deep-dive for niche, country-specific advice. The teams are on the ground in over 40 countries, speak the local language and understand the local laws – but crucially in a global context.

Pragmatism and business acumen

CMS has a knack for turning legal advice into practical solutions that make sense not just to your legal teams, but to your other employees, such as the HR function, or software engineers.
