Data And Cyber Bulletin - February 2022

Published 1 March 2022

Welcome to February’s edition of the Data and Cyber Bulletin with timely content from Hans Allnutt and our new-joiner and national security & cyber specialist, Tom Evans, on state-led cyber operations, along with Brett Randles’ interesting account of P4x’s retaliatory attack on North Korea’s internet.  We also summarise the recent decision in the case of Stadler v Currys Group, during which the High Court confirmed that it is not the appropriate forum for low-value data protection claims. 

Marine, Energy and Transport Insurance Partner, Toby Vallance, and Tom Evans provide fascinating insight into marine cyber and we are delighted that Franz Konig from our Legalign Global partner firm, BLD Bach Langheid Dallmayr Rechtsanwalte, has provided his views on the recent Munich Regional Court decision on non-material GDPR damage.  Finally, we are pleased to share content from BLS Rechtsanwaite’s Philipp Scheuba and Stefan Humer discussing the recent Austrian data protection authority’s decision in relation to Google Analytics.
