Data And Cyber Bulletin - October 2021

Published 29 octubre 2021

Welcome to the October edition of our Data And Cyber Bulletin.

This month, we shine a spotlight on silent cyber: from the systemic threat posed by the Internet of Things’ vulnerabilties to how professional indemnity insurers are tackling wordings and exclusions in response.

For those interested in breach related developments, we provide insight into the international legislative drive to combat ransomware by exerting control over crypto-currency payments. We are delighted to receive our monthly guest contribution by Experian’s Jim Steven, providing welcome guidance on how businesses can avoid data breach blind-spots.

Finally, we return to the latest litigation developments. The recent Court of Appeal decision in Griffiths v TUI highlights the practical implications for defendants faced with uncontroverted expert evidence. Our article on Project Red Card delves into the fascinating and forthcoming litigation on sports data mining.
