Cameron Craig is deputy general counsel and group head of data privacy at HSBC, a role which he took on in September 2013. In this new role he has responsibility for advising the Bank on global data privacy risks and appropriate measures to address these risks. Before joining HSBC Cameron was a partner in DLA Piper's IP & Technology Team where he built and was the co-chair of DLA Piper's EU Data Protection and Privacy Team. He worked as an engineer before turning to the law and his practice retains a strong technology focus. He has extensive experience in advising on outsourcing transactions and in managing and implementing global data protection solutions for international businesses. Cameron has managed many multi-jurisdictional projects, co-ordinating advice on compliance with data protection legislation across the world and advising clients on strategies for cloud adoption. Cameron is recognised as a data protection expert in Chambers for both UK and international data protection law which in 2010 stated that "he is well respected by market observers, who recommend him for his client-friendly and commercial approach" and in 2011 states that he is "technically second to none," while clients value his "approachable manner and commercial advice." The 2012 edition of Legal 500 recommends Cameron for "co-ordinating privacy projects for blue-chip clients" and the UK data protection team for providing ‘top-notch commercial advice’ on regulatory compliance matters, including for online products, international data transfers and security breach issues. He is also a regular contributor to journals and is the author of the data protection chapter for the Communications Law Handbook published recently by Bloomsbury Professional.
