Michael Hopp er partner og leder af vores team for Persondataret.

Michael er en af landets førende specialister inden for persondataret, og var en af landets første advokater til at specialisere sig inden for området. Michael har hos Plesner opbygget et unikt markedsledende persondatateam.

Michael har siden 2000 beskæftiget sig indgående med persondataret, hvilket gør, at han har oparbejdet en både bred og dyb erfaring med håndtering af mange typer af persondataretlige problemstillinger. Michael er bredt anerkendt som en af de ledende, danske rådgivere på området.

Michael rådgiver en række af de mest betydningsfulde danske og multinationale virksomheder på tværs af brancher og hans rådgivning omfatter alle aspekter af persondataretten, som f.eks. datasikkerhed, internationale dataoverførsler, risikovurderinger, whistleblower hotlines og sikkerhedsbrud. Gennem sin håndtering af adskillige sikkerhedsbrud, har Michael også opnået gennemgribende erfaring med krisehåndtering.

 

Michael har opnået global anerkendelse for sin ekspertise inden for persondataret og placerer sig på flere internationale ranglister i toppen af sit felt. Som den eneste advokat i Danmark er Michael anerkendt som en "Global Elite Thought Leader" på den globale rangliste WWL ("Who's Who Legal") inden for persondataret, hvilket fremhæver Michaels evner inden for persondataretlig rådgivning i forbindelse med komplekse regulatoriske problemstillinger.

 

Michael er efterspurgt blandt klienter for sin rådgivningen inden for GDPR samt konsekvenserne af reguleringen af private virksomheder og offentlige myndigheder. Michaels omfattende netværk rækker både nationalt og internationalt, og han bruger sit netværk aktivt til vidensdeling og løsning af specifikke opgaver for klienter.


Med sine mange års erfaring inden for persondataret og databeskyttelse har Michael stået i spidsen for flere nyskabende tiltag i branchen. Michael står blandt andet bag Plesners GDPR Master Class og Plesners 5-dages kursus "Plesner Certifikat i Persondataret", der tilsammen  har haft mere end 1.100 deltagere. Derudover har Michael også stået bag den populære compliance-software RISMAgdpr og Plesners GDPR e-learning, ligesom han senest har initieret Plesners digitale vidensplatform "Plesner LegalHub".

Michaels omfattende undervisningserfaring giver ham en stor indsigt i de udfordringer, som virksomheder og myndigheder står over for, og tilsvarende omfattende erfaring med, hvordan disse udfordringer løses bedst muligt. 

På markedsføringsområdet har Michael omfattende viden om datadrevet markedsføring og særligt de kommercielle gevinster ved brugen af datadrevet markedsføring. Michael er en værdiskabende rådgiver særligt i forhold til den dynamiske fortolkning af lovgivningen relateret til udbredelsen af nye teknologier.
