Simac is a technology company which is active as network and system integrator in the Benelux and Middle Europe. PHI DATA is engaged in digitization solutions (so-called “smart edge” solutions) that are close to the core process of the customer and that integrate their physical chain with their digital chain in real time. The Astrea team was led by corporate & technology partner Steven De Schrijver.
Astrea’s corporate and technology partner Steven De Schrijver and commercial law partner Olivier Van Fraeyenhoven have contributed the Belgian chapter in “The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law Review” (Seventh Edition, Ed. Alan Charles Raul), which has been published by Law Business Research in its “Law Reviews”-series.
The Law Reviews give readers a business-focused insight into some of the key substantive and procedural issues, as well as an analysis of important cases, deals and hot topics in each field of law. They also help practitioners to look beyond their own borders where they may see opportunities to practise ever more actively, exploiting strategic solutions and understanding options in foreign jurisdictions which are different from their home forum.
In the Belgian chapter, Steven and Olivier discuss the most recent Belgian legislative and regulatory developments with respect to privacy, data protection and cybersecurity law, as well as some recent case law.
