Welcome to the latest edition of MacRoberts’ Data Protection and Cyber Security Newsletter. We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping well and safe.
As businesses adjust their working practices in light of COVID-19, and with the majority of employees now working from home where possible, our data protection experts consider the status and importance of continuing to comply with data protection regulations.
This newsletter contains insights from our team to the latest guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (as the UK’s regulator for data protection matters), the key steps businesses should take to ensure continued compliance with the regulations, the rules around direct marketing at a time of social distancing and self-isolation, and the data protection and cyber security considerations when it comes to enabling employees to work from home... and much more.
We hope you find this newsletter interesting and informative. If you would like to discuss any of the topics raised in this edition, or any aspect of your business’s data protection and cyber security practices, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
With very best wishes,
MacRoberts’ Data Protection and Cyber Security Team
