Our Data Privacy and Protection team includes senior lawyers who have longstanding experience in data privacy law, and we have had representation on the United Nations Global Pulse Data Privacy and AI Expert Group for many years.
Each of our team members is an expert in a very specific area of data privacy law, which enables us to work together to offer robust, practical solutions that cover the key requirements of data privacy law.
For example, we pioneered the Protection of Personal Information (POPIA) Toolkit, a comprehensive programme which is a cost-effective way to fast track your continued POPIA compliance and manage risk.
Our African footprint enables us to offer you a seamless service covering the whole of Africa. We specialise in handling and co-ordinating even the most complex in-country, cross-border and multi-jurisdictional requirements quickly, efficiently and with excellence.
One of the many benefits of our continent-wide approach is that, no matter how many countries your project spans, you can always interact with a single point of contact at ENSafrica.
We guide you through your entire data privacy and protection journey, from conducting impact assessments to negotiating agreements to be compliant with data privacy laws, preventing and responding to security compromises, data breaches and cyber-attacks, as well as dealing with all aspects of regulatory enforcement action and civil litigation stemming from breaches of data privacy laws.
We are leaders in assisting clients with data commercialisation requirements, especially regarding navigating the complex myriad of laws affecting the sharing of data and personal information.
We have particularly strong expertise in guiding clients in complex fields such as the acquisition and sharing of databases (both in-country and trans-border), electronic/digital marketing, data privacy in Mergers and Acquisitions transactions, cloud computing, outsourcing and other business transactions.
ENSafrica is recognised by leading international ranking agencies, including Chambers Global, Legal 500, IFLR1000 and the World Tax Guide, for achieving consistently high standards.
Furthermore, the firm is a regular recipient of regional awards such as DealMakers and has twice received the TMT Team of the Year Award at the African Legal Awards.
