Data Protection update - June 2015


In this issue, we outline the progress being made with the draft Data Protection Regulation, together with calls by the French data protection authority (CNIL) for Google to extend Europe’s ‘right to be forgotten’ globally.

We consider the new USA Freedom Act, passed on 2 June 2015, which has been called “the most important surveillance reform bill since 1978”. We also outline guidance issued on binding corporate rules, and summarise a new data protection development in the Netherlands.

In our cyber-security section, we consider a major data hack affecting the U.S. Government, as well as recent hacks relating to companies in the UK.

Finally, we continue to keep you up to date with the latest enforcement activity of the ICO.
