Wout Olieslagers, part of our Privacy & Cybersecurity practice, has extensive experience in advising clients on monetizing their data in line with applicable legislation. He strongly believes that a pragmatic approach on applying such legislation facilitates meeting business needs and developing new technologies. Being seconded as a legal subject matter expert at various clients over the past 5 years has brought him many insights on where companies stand and what their goals are in respect of data.

Wout is experienced in performing and managing multi-jurisdictional privacy and cybersecurity projects, covering topics such as data retention and deletion, data subject rights and incident response management. Furthermore, he has advised multiple clients on setting up a privacy governance and a privacy policy framework. In addition, Wout has assisted clients in punitive administrative proceedings before national regulators, including the Dutch data protection authority.

Wout holds master degrees in both Information Law and Private Law and is CIPP/e and CIPM certified.
