Information Technology Law – Regulatory Compliance
With the enactment of the Information Technology Amendment Act, 2008 [which came into effect on February, 2009], organisations under various provisions have the responsibility to ensure that ‘...reasonable security measures’ are put in place. An organisation could be liable in the event that it ‘acquiesces’ or ‘allows’ its intellectual property or corporate identity to be misused. We assist clients in identifying, developing best practise and securing their technology networks.
Privacy Review and Audits
We conduct comprehensive privacy reviews and audits to help companies fully understand their collection, use and sharing of personal and other sensitive data. Our custom reports offer specific and practical recommendations and checklists to help our clients quickly understand the data they handle and the laws and regulations that apply to their collection, use, storage and sharing of that data. Post review, we work closely with clients to prioritize needed remedial efforts including putting in place data privacy guidelines and mechanism as required under the Indian Information Technology Act.
Compliance: Apparatus and Training
We conduct customized compliance workshops, training and sensitization programmes for in-house counsels and employees on critical issues such as regulatory compliances, risk management, intellectual property, data privacy and information technology, prevention of sexual harassment at workplace, etc. The objective behind such programmes is to assist and enable the employees and members of the legal team of the client[s] to understand the basic aspects of law and policy relevant to the working of their company.
