About this Episode

Welcome to another episode of GDPR Now, a podcast dedicated to data protection and all things data security and data privacy. This week’s episode is COVID 19 and the impact on Data Protection.

Regular listeners will have already heard our episodes on what DPOs need to know about cyber security, for those that missed them, they are episodes 7 & 15. Today, we start a series of podcasts addressing concerns resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and the shift in working practises for 100,000s businesses across the UK and the world.

In the studio today we are delighted to have Kingsley Hayes, Managing Director of Hayes Connor Solicitors based in Widnes, Cheshire. In this first of two episodes, we are going to talk about Covid 19 and the impact on data protection.

In our second episode, Kingsley and I will be discussing data breach Group Action law suits in general, and the BA action in particular. We cover the reputational and financial risks businesses need to be aware of when Group Actions, are filed as a result of data breaches.

GDPR Now! Is brought to you by Data Protection 4 Business & This Is DPO.
