Data Privacy

The processing of data is more critical than ever. Businesses must apply policies that reduce risk, maintain a positive experience and comply with evolving data privacy and security laws.

There’s not a business today that doesn’t deal with the implications of data privacy and security laws. Whether an organization has employee, customer, vendor or supplier data – or all of the above – the ability to use, share and manage that data comes with more responsibilities and risks than ever before.

Businesses rely on KO’s expertise in the highly specialized data privacy and security space to structure and negotiate complex technology and data-related transactions, including the licensing, commercialization and sharing of data; as well as to navigate data privacy and security regulations and compliance with various regulations such as the GDPR and CCPA.
