Data & Privacy Matters podcast: EP3 Legal updates - March 2024


United Kingdom

In this third episode of Fieldfisher's new Data & Privacy Matters podcast, Martin McElroy, Kristina Holm and Sophia Steiger look at the key data and privacy news from March 2024. 


March gave the team much to discuss! First up they take us through the latest on AI legislation, including the EU AI Act being approved by MEPs on 13 March and the UK Private Members Bill – AI (Regulation) reaching the Committee Stage in the House of Lords. The EU's Cyber Resilience Act ("CRA") is also going to the European Council to be adopted. 

The episode also explores the ICO's consultation on the "pay or OK" model and its recent fining guidance, and touches on the top fines hitting the headlines around Europe and a variety of ICO enforcement action including Amazon's appeal of the $34.6 million fine from the CNIL.

With the volume of continuous developments in the data and privacy ecosystem, it can be hard to stay on top of the key news stories. This is a must-listen podcast to catch up on notable data and privacy news in the past month and consider what your business or organisation needs to be doing in response.
