Data & Privacy Matters: EP1 Legal Updates – January 2024


United Kingdom


In this first episode of Fieldfisher's new Data & Privacy Matters podcast, Lorna Cropper, Chloe Abbott and trainee Sophie Milne round up the key data and privacy news from January 2024.

They examine the legislative developments from the EU in the month that the EU Data Act entered the Official Journal and the draft EU AI Act was leaked. Recent ICO actions, such as its generative AI consultation and the positive response to its cookie enforcement, are discussed before attention turns to some key regulatory fines.

A spotlight is also aimed at the EDPB's One-Stop-Shop case digest focused on the Security of Processing and Data Breach Notifications. The case digest report was finalised before the CJEU's judgment in the Bulgarian matter (case C-340-21). Whilst the podcast does not discuss this case, it considered appropriate security measures with the judgment holding that the controller needs to prove that "appropriate" technical and organisational measures were adopted to prevent a data breach.

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.
