Data Protection


Data Protection Consultancy in Spain

The Spanish data protection legislation (commonly known as LOPD, Ley Orgánica de Protección de Datos de Carácter Personal de España) has been in force for some time, and is based on the regulations laid out in the European directive. 

This data protection legislation applies to companies and individuals who provide professional services of any nature, and covers everything from the initial setting up of the internal procedures designed to protect data of a sensitive (personal) nature, to the preparation of contracts and questionnaires for us on day to day matters; with the related IT security controls. If these measures are not implemented the Spanish Data protection Agency (DPA) cancarry out inspections which could lead to substantial fines and penalties. 

Our specialist team provides value added services in the design, implementation and registration of the required internal systems for entities that provide services covered by the legislation. In addition we provide ongoing external monitoring of these systems, and ensure that your organization is able to provide quality assured services in sensitive areas of activity.
