A collaboration between the Law Society of Scotland and Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is set to provide a boost to the legal tech sector in Scotland, through assistance in developing technology-based solutions to GDPR issues.
The Law Society of Scotland has signed a memorandum of understanding with the ICO which allows it to act as a gateway to the ICO’s innovation hub in Cheshire, which is working in partnership with technology innovators on ‘Data Protection by design’. The project aims to help companies engineer technology designed to ensure GDPR compliance from the outset and provides bespoke guidance from the ICO.
Paul Mosson, Law Society of Scotland Executive Director of Member Services and Engagement, said: “This is a very positive step for us. The shared aims of the MOU will enable closer working between the Law Society, our members and the ICO, allowing us to take a more collaborative approach and exchange information to support our growing legal tech community.”
