Data Protection update - December 2014 / January 2015


In this issue, we summarise the outcome of the EU Council of Ministers Home and Justice Affairs' meeting in December 2014 as well as the Article 29 Working Party's publications on a co-operation procedure for contractual clauses and device fingerprinting.

We also look at the European Data Protection Supervisor's new guidelines on data protection in EU financial services, and the CJEU's ruling on the application of data protection law to video surveillance. Further, we update you on the recent changes to Polish data protection law.

In our cyber security section, we consider the latest cyber-attacks on Sony. In addition, we discuss the United States' new cyber security unit and the most recent legislative developments in the cyber field.

Finally, we continue to keep you up to date with the latest enforcement activity of the ICO, and the recommendations of the Nuisance Calls and Texts Taskforce.
