Compliance assessment

Major pharmaceutical company

Arnold & Porter conducted an assessment of compliance with the EU Directive on Data Protection and with the privacy laws of five EU countries for a global pharmaceutical company. This project involved conducting a detailed assessment of the applicability of the EU Directive and US/EU Safe Harbor to pharmaceutical companies, developing and circulating a detailed written questionnaire (tailored to the national data protection laws of the five major EU countries), conducting in-country interviews with more than 20 company employees, identifying gaps in the company's data protection policies and practices, and developing a plan to address these gaps. Upon completion of the initial assessment, our team worked closely with the client to implement the recommendations and to ensure the effectiveness of the recommended policies, practices, and procedures.
