GDPR Breach Reporting - What Would You Do?
9/18/2019 12:16:55 PM by Adam Brogden
So, your school sends you an email with the details of all the kids in the school including name, address, medical conditions, benefits status, special needs, and parents employment. What do you do? This is definitely a data breach and something the school should take very seriously but what if the school ignore you when you report it.

Urgent Brexit
9/17/2019 12:27:10 PM by Adam Brogden
The ICO has published even more guidance on what a no deal Brexit would mean. This is most important and you really do need to take a look. If you are a UK business or organisation that receives personal data from contacts in the EEA, you need to take extra steps to ensure that the data can continue to flow after Brexit.

GDPR And Brexit
9/16/2019 12:14:20 PM by Adam Brogden
Brexit could be with us at the end of October and we are certainly not going to guess at the likely outcome or at the future post Brexit. From a GDPR perspective the situation is just as complicated with very little concrete information and guidance from the Government or the ICO.

Are Your Suppliers Compliant?
9/13/2019 2:01:11 PM by Adam Brogden
As part of your GDPR project you need to consider whether your customers, suppliers, partners, and other third parties need to be GDPR compliant in order for you to be compliant. This might sound a little strange but the regulations state that you need to ensure that you have appropriate contracts, controls, and technology in place to protect all data when you buy, sell, share, or transfer data to anyone.

The Seven Pillars Of GDPR
9/12/2019 12:05:45 PM by Adam Brogden
GDPR is complicated and open to interpretation, however as long as you document your decision and rationale for your ‘reasonable’ choice you should be safe from ICO action. When you need to make difficult decisions you should always refer to the basic GDPR principles.

What Is GDPR Online Personal Data?
9/10/2019 11:59:21 AM by Adam Brogden
Personal data is usually defined as “one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.” However the GDPR specifically includes the term ‘online identifiers’ within the definition of what constitutes personal data.

GDPR And Artificial Intelligence
9/9/2019 3:25:33 PM by Adam Brogden
The ICO is working on a framework to help companies using AI understand how GDPR applies and the measures companies need to take to ensure they are GDPR compliant. For example – how do you meet the data minimisation principle in an AI system? This seems to be exactly the opposite of how AI systems work! Here is an extract from the blog produced by the ICO.

GDPR And Processing Children’s Data
9/2/2019 1:16:17 PM by Adam Brogden

New Cookie Rules
8/28/2019 11:45:34 AM by Adam Brogden
Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect last May, there has been a great deal of interest in how it applies to cookies and similar technologies. Cookies can seem a complex issue. The rules on their use are in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR), not the GDPR. However, some of PECR’s key concepts now come from the GDPR such as the standard of consent.
