With changes under the General Data Protection Regulation looming, DocsCorp has partnered with technology consultant and 2twenty4 Consulting founder Tim Hyman to publish an in-depth white paper entitled Dark Data: The Hidden Risk to GDPR Non-Compliance. 

The paper, out today (6 February) examines key impact areas of new legislation, particularly on the storing and processing of ‘personal data’; the impact of Brexit; responding to data access requests; the risk of dark data, and maintaining compliance.

For DocsCorp, GDPR is turning out to be a key focus, as law firms work out how to prevent leaks and improve the discoverability of data. Hyman, meanwhile, who has experience as an IT director at some of the UK’s top law firm – Reed Smith, Olswang, and Taylor Wessing – now leads transformational change, focusing on strategic planning, building high calibre teams, introducing improvement programmes, and implementing best practice methodologies.
