Andrea Holder

Senior Manager, Data Protection Strategy, Legal and Compliance Services, PwC United Kingdom

I am Andrea Holder, a Senior Manager and Senior Disputes Lawyer (South Africa-qualified) in PwC’s Data Protection Strategy, Law and Compliance Services practice.

My background mainly revolves around providing clients with specialist advice on regulatory matters. I have over 10 years’ experience working in a legal practice, including 2 years in-house in a global investment bank. I also spent 3 years in PwC’s Regulatory & Commercial Disputes team, where I advised clients on financial crime legislation.

Since the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 came into force, I have focused my practice on contentious data privacy. Leveraging my previous experience, I assist clients in reviews (internal and external), skilled persons reports, regulatory enforcement action, responding to queries from regulators, general customer/client complaints and assessing complex claims.

I regularly contribute to blogs and articles which appear in InCompliance, Law360 and Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence, and the Financial Action Task Force Chapter on the Risk Based Approach for Lawyers.
