Legal Advice on Privacy-related Laws and Support During On-Site Audits
Our ability to draw from our long experience and our robust team of professionals with legal and various non-legal backgrounds makes us the premier Privacy & Data Security Practice in Korea capable of providing not only advices on legal issues but also practical supports during on-site audits by the regulatory authorities.
Risk Assessment on Security Systems and Data Processing Practices
We have developed a unique risk assessment program comprised of a customized checklist and analytics to accurately capture the snapshot of company’s personal information processes. Based on such assessment, we can evaluate the company's current IT security measures and assess for legal and technological weaknesses.
Countermeasures against Personal Information Leakage and/or Hacking
Based on our strong team and unique insight, we have successfully represented companies in all of the recent “top five” hacking incidents, and continue to handle many of the major administrative, civil, and criminal litigations relating to privacy violations or hacking incidents.
Data privacy is an issue for virtually any company, as all organizations engage in some form and degree of processing of personal information. We have represented and advised most of the major local and global businesses operating in Korea, including companies and institutions that process personal information on a large scale such as those in the telecommunications, luxury, distribution, pharmaceutical, automobile manufacturing, web service and finance (insurance, banking, etc.) sectors. Wealth of experience we have drawn from such representations has helped establish us as a market leader.
