Considering the promulgation of the Data Privacy Act and its implementing rules and regulations, businesses are now required to maintain policies safeguarding the received and collected data. Our practice on data privacy thus emerged to address the pending needs of clients considered as personal information controllers or processors.
We assist clients in conducting privacy risk and audit assessment, drafting and institutionalizing data privacy policies, drafting and review of privacy notices/statements and contracts (such as employment contracts, service agreements, and data sharing and outsourcing agreements), conducting security awareness programs, advising Data Protection and Compliance Officers on data privacy compliance and reporting, and other related services.
In line with the technicalities of the practice, we partnered with a leading information security specialist that handles the technical aspect of the data privacy compliance.
To address the clients’ legal concerns outside of the Philippines, ZGLaw entered a strategic alliance with WongPartnership LLP, a top-tier law firm headquartered in Singapore. With this new alliance, we are now officially the Philippine member of the WPG Regional Law Network, the leading provider of legal services comprising prominent law firms from the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Singapore.
