Data Protection and Privacy

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) reshapes the way in which sectors manage data, as well as redefines the roles for key leaders in businesses, from Chief Information Officers to Chief Marketing Officers. Chief Information Officers must ensure that they have watertight consent management processes in place, whilst Chief Marketing Officers require effective data rights management systems to ensure they don’t lose their most valuable asset – data. The implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires a profound change in the legal, organizational or technical “Data Privacy” approach taken by economic players.

How VAN LEEUWEN FCRM can help

Most organizations do not have a comprehensive approach to preventing and deterring Corporate Crime. In fact, most companies don’t think about Corporate Crime until they experience one. When Corporate Crime occurs, they go into crisis mode, investigate and try to resolve the Corporate Crime, and then wait until another Corporate Crime occurs.

Through our servicelines we help private and public organizations identity the nature and extent of Corporate Crime and deliver appropriate remedies to establish a more comprehensive approach to preventing and deterring Corporate Crime.

Legel Department Operations

New technologies and processes are transforming in-house legal departments, but staffing models, too, are shifting to create new efficiencies and respond to the need for updated departmental skills and expertise.

Meet the legal department operations (LDO) professionals – a new position in corporate legal departments that is increasingly helping free up attorney time to focus on legal matters instead of operational ones. The recognition that operations, innovation, technology, and procurement should actually be the responsibility of an identifiable individual, rather than part of the portfolio of the general counsel is the biggest emerging trend in legal operations.

The legal department operations (LDO) professional is typically occupied with project management, financial planning, and managing outside counsel. But these legal department operations (LDO) professionals are also responsible for strategy, goal setting, and managing budgets, people, and vendors. Additionally, legal department operations (LDO) professionals play a crucial role in change management, which might explain their recent popularity.

The legal department operations (LDO) professional is often the person to decide what technology changes make sense and to determine how those technologies should be implemented with consideration of financial and operational implications such as budgeting, staffing requirements, outsourcing, and training.
