Jocelyn is a director at Gowling WLG with special interests in data protection, emerging technology and anything ‘cloud’. She is a member of the firm’s Tech sector team, actively engaged in the technology sector as a whole, and a key member of the Information Law team, advising clients from all sectors on the impact of GDPR. She has spoken about preparations for GDPR at events with retailers (including banks), universities, housing associations, pension trustees and to various in-house legal teams.
Highlights of Jocelyn’s experience include advising:
an insurer on their GDPR compliance programme, right from its inception, planning, strategies and into the detailed documentation.
a car manufacturer on a data audit of its entire business to assess compliance with current data protection legislation and determine priority areas to address for GDPR.
a leisure and holiday provider on the data protection implications of its new customer-facing systems, including providing training to teams across the business involved in the project, advising on completion and outcomes of PIAs and ad hoc support
A major supermarket on its data protection impact assessment on the advent of outsourcing auto-enrolment services. The company was one of the first large corporates to implement auto-enrolment so as a new technology within the business, a DPIA was appropriate to ensure that employees’ privacy was upheld in the new system.
A multi-brand retailer on their procurement of a new cloud-based payroll services system for their business internationally. Data protection and privacy was a key aspect of this agreement due to the nature of the services, the provision of service to the business globally, the consequences of unauthorised disclosures and the need for constant access to up-to-date information from central business systems.
