Data Privacy Day: Cognia Law & Novation Consulting Collaborate

JOHANNESBURG - Jan. 28, 2019 - PRLog -- Today is Data Privacy Day! Known as Data Protection Day in Europe, and observed in over 50 countries, DPD puts the spotlight on the importance of data protection by promoting best practices around respecting and safeguarding data for both consumers and companies. South Africa is currently not listed as one of the countries observing DPD. However, with the South African Information Regulator preparing to open its doors and becoming increasingly vocal about the importance of data protection, this might change soon.

Cognia Law, a law company offering consulting and managed services to compliance departments and in-house legal functions, is delighted to formally announce a new collaboration with South African-based, compliance specialists, Novation Consulting. The new collaboration will look to address the increasing focus on compliance and data privacy related challenges, specifically GDPR and POPIA.

Adopting its innovative law-firm wrapped model that has seen successful strategic collaborations with international law firms in South Africa UK, USA, France and Switzerland, Cognia Law teams up with Novation Consulting to offer clients value-added services that combine operational rigor and bespoke solutions with the right expertise.

As a UK-headquartered company, Cognia Law has extensive experience in helping companies prepare for GDPR, remediate contracts and maintain compliance, by removing the busy work so they can focus on what is important. The new alliance with compliance-focused, Novation Consulting, will provide forward-thinking solutions to help clients meet compliance-related deadlines and leverage on the commercial value that being compliant brings to the business.

"We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Elizabeth and her dynamic team who share our passion for delivering game changing models powering our client success". ~ Cognia's Founder, CEO and renowned legal efficiency strategist, Janet Taylor-Hall.

"There are several reasons for spending time and effort on data protection. As digital systems become ever more vital to business processes, data privacy legislation, such as GDPR and POPIA, and client obligations, are increasingly being imposed on businesses. Without a working data protection strategy, meeting these obligations is just not possible. Cognia, in partnership with Novation Consulting, are able to effectively plan for and implement data protection strategies for our clients." ~ Cognia's General Counsel, Yvonne Lazarowicz

Novation Consulting Founder, Elizabeth de Stadler adds that: "Data protection projects come alive when common sense advice, good communication skills and expertly designed business processes meet. We are excited to find out what will happen when Novation and Cognia combine forces."
