Calligo, the Jersey-headquartered end-to-end managed data services provider, has signed an agreement with global law firm Reed Smith LLP to market and deliver data protection, governance and privacy services to each other’s clients in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Reed Smith’s IP, Tech & Data Group and technology subsidiary, GravityStack, are expected to work with Calligo to provide mutual clients with a full suite of data protection services, including legal frameworks for data use and a range of continuous data protection services, such as outsourced Data Protection Officer (DPO) services, cybersecurity support and technology infrastructure.
Calligo founder and CEO Julian Box said: “Calligo and Reed Smith have worked together for many years and over that time we have grown to understand each other’s approaches and the impact each has on its clients. It’s clear that Reed Smith shares in our philosophy that data should be continuously secure and safe to use, but most of all that these measures should never encumber data’s availability or potential. This partnership is designed to deliver exactly that – total data protection from policies and processes to its practical, secure, innovative use.”
