Welcome to the September edition of our Data Protection update, our monthly bulletin on key developments in data protection law.
In this issue, we discuss the foiled cyber-attack on Santander and highlight what organisations should be doing to protect against cyber-attacks.
We look at the ICO's recent activity, including monetary penalties it imposed on Islington Council and Aberdeen Council and the undertaking against Cardiff City Council.
We also outline the new EU rules for public electronic communications service providers on the notification of personal data breaches which came into force on 25 August 2013 in the form of European Commission Regulation 611/2013.
Finally, we provide our regular update on the progress of the draft EU Data Protection Regulation and highlight recent debates in Brussels.
