Data Protection update - September / October 2014


Welcome to the September / October 2014 edition of our Data Protection update, our monthly bulletin on key developments in data protection law.

In this issue, we discuss the recent personal data breaches involving Apple's iCloud and US retailer Home Depot, and look at the steps which Google and the Article 29 Working Party are taking in response to the "right to be forgotten" ruling. We also summarise the Article 29 Working Party's statement on the CJEU's ruling on the Data Retention Directive, and summarise the settlement made by Verizon for its failure to provide opt-out notices.

Finally, we continue to keep you up to date with the recent activity of the ICO including the latest enforcement developments, and we provide highlights of the ICO’s guidance on protection for the media.
