Tim Van Canneyt, CIPP/E
I am a Partner in the Fieldfisher Technology outsourcing and Privacy Group.
I have significant experience in the field of privacy, data protection and data security. In this context, I have a particular interest in privacy challenges relating to digital technologies and services (cloud computing, cookies, geolocalisation, Internet of Things, Big Data etc.).
I have assisted numerous companies, especially in the TMT, Life Sciences and Financial Services sectors, to put in place global privacy compliance programs enabling them to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation and other data protection regulations.
Additionally, I help companies preparing for and dealing with data breaches. My assistance covers both the implementation of data security incident response plans and dealing with the fall-out and notification obligations of data breaches.
Due to my extensive experience drafting and negotiating complex system integration and outsourcing agreements, I'm also very well placed to deal with data processing agreements.
I am the author of many publications in the field of data protection and information technology and a guest lecturer ICT contracting practices at the University of Leuven. Leading legal directories describe me as "brilliant and clinical, with an acute grasp of the law particularly with regards to privacy, data protection and data security issues.
