The ByrneWallace LLP Cyber Security and Privacy and Data Protection team are pleased to have authored The Legal 500: Data Protection & Cyber Security Comparative Guide.
Written by Partner and Head of Cyber Security, Jon Legorburu, and Privacy & Data Protection partners Seán O’Donnell and Zelda Deasy, the Guide provides an overview of the legal and regulatory framework governing data protection and privacy within Ireland. This comprehensive Guide also looks at expected changes to the data protection and privacy law landscape, and the requirements on organisations to comply with data protection in Ireland.
