Privacy and cybersecurity present unique opportunities and risks across your operations. Legal frameworks and market forces in these areas are rapidly evolving in ways that cannot be ignored.

We provide a full range of privacy and cybersecurity legal advisory services. From workplace privacy issues, to cybersecurity planning and risk management, to innovative marketing and big data analytics projects, and cross-border outsourcing, we help ensure that your activities are aligned with key objectives, evolving standards and stakeholder priorities. Clients turn to us for advice regarding not only Canadian privacy and related laws, but also the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our clients range from innovative start-ups to leading Fortune 500 companies. Almost all of the top cyber-insurance carriers in Canada have selected Fasken as the lead breach response firm to work with their insureds in the event of data breaches. In recognition of our expertise, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has commissioned Fasken to author several landmark reports and guidance material on privacy law.  We have also been called on to defend high-profile class action litigation in relation to cybersecurity and data breaches.
