Data protection and information security


We deliver comprehensive and highly professional data protection, protection of privacy and information security advice and on state-of-the-art knowledge of information security based on Slovak law, EU law.

We have given data protection advice to more than 300 clients from a wide range of industries, including finance, energy, construction, automotive and roads administration, defence and IT industries, real estate market or tourism organisations, healthcare providers, hotels and professional associations, public sector organisations, culture and media outlets, e-shops, employers and other client-oriented companies, from large multinationals all the way down to local operators.

We are a founding member of the Association for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic, which unites Slovak and Czech data protection officers (DPO), and we are also intensively involved in teaching activities of personal data protection.

We aim to help organizations set up processes to administer personal data in accordance with the GDPR and the Personal Data Protection Act. We will prepare for you:

  • audits on personal data protection (GAP analysis) and so-called data mapping;
  • security documentation (agreements, consents, information obligation, records of processing activities, proportionality tests, impact assessment on data protection) and provide assistance in its implementation (practical instructions to ensure personal data protection);
  • training, webinars or other forms of education of personal data protection for you and your employees.

We also use our knowledge of GDPR in litigation and in representing clients before courts and state authorities. We will also help you:

  • in proceedings before the Personal Data Protection Office in cases of inspections and in proceedings concerning personal data protection (after going through a number of such inspections with our clients we are aware of the inspectors’ focus and procedure);
  • security incidents and their reporting to the Personal Data Protection Office;
  • with processing of complaints and motions filed by data subjects.

If you would like to have your personal data protection in 100 % condition, we will provide you services of an external data protection officer, consultations on various issues of personal data protection and we will ensure you continuing oversight.

We have helped our clients to prepare and successfully go through the approval process with two codes of conduct in personal data processing at the Personal Data Protection, in areas of:

  • tourism sector (for travel agencies and travel agencies in cooperation with SACKA);
  • digital sector (for digital market entities in cooperation with Interactive Advertising Bureau Slovakia - association for internet advertising).

It does not matter if you are a controller, a processor or a data subject.
