Data, Privacy & Cybersecurity

BCL’s work in the fields of data, privacy and cybersecurity focuses on the laws which govern access to information and those which protect it. Our expertise encompasses laws relating to investigatory powers, data protection, computer misuse, and data sharing. Many of our engagements arise from demands for information by state authorities, the use of new technologies for investigative purposes, and the enforcement of data rights and obligations. Our work involves both contentious matters and compliance guidance. Our clients include tech companies, SMEs and start-ups, and corporates facing regulatory investigation, which are the victims of cyber-attacks, or which have received information requests. We also provide specialist advice to individuals facing financial and reputational harm through breach of their privacy rights, or who are accused of criminal breaches of computer misuse, data protection and investigatory powers legislation.
