Data And Cyber Bulletin - August 2022

Published 30 agosto 2022

Welcome to the August edition of our Data And Cyber Bulletin, in which we summarise the key points from the recently published ENISA report on the Threat Landscape for Ransomware Attacks.
We share our thoughts on the recent intervention by the EDPB following a dispute between the French and Polish data protection authorities.

We provide a summary of a recent case in which the ICO exercised its criminal enforcement powers resulting in a former health adviser being found guilty of accessing medical records of patients without a valid legal reason, resulting in a criminal compensation order.

We summarise the key recommendations from the Council for Foreign Relations’ report on Confronting Reality in Cyberspace.

Finally, we share out thoughts on the ongoing delays to the passage of the Online Safety Bill through the Houses of Parliament.
