Ethics and Compliance Update - November 2019

November 26th, 2019

The ‘Ethics and Compliance update' that was originally issued in September has now been updated.

It now also includes brief details of the latest ICO guidance on special category personal data.

Also in this update:

The extended data protection guidance that’s available from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office

A look at what’s on the horizon: 

  • With Brexit looming large you need to understand the data protection implications; 
  • EU standard contractual clauses and the US Privacy Shield are being challenged in the European Courts and may be invalidated.
