Welcome to the February 2015 edition of our Data Protection update, our monthly bulletin on key developments in data protection law.
In this issue, we summarise the Google Advisory Council's final report, as well as the Hong Kong Privacy Commissioner's guidance on cross-border data transfers. We also look at Microsoft's adoption of the world's first international standard for cloud privacy.
In our cyber security section, we consider the UK's efforts to recruit cybersecurity experts and the government's new guidance on cybersecurity. Further, we update you on the Anthem cyber-attack as well as global cyber legislative developments.
Finally, we continue to keep you up to date with the latest enforcement activity of the ICO, and consider the changes to the threshold for nuisance calls and text messages. We also look at the ICO privacy seal, the ICO's new power to audit the NHS and its report on community healthcare providers.
