About this Episode

Welcome to another episode of GDPR Now, a podcast dedicated to data protection and all things data security and privacy. This week’s episode is Group Action lawsuits arising from data breaches.

We continue our series of podcasts addressing concerns resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, such as increases in data breaches arising from IT security issues and the increased risks resulting from the huge shift to remote working 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 second episode, we are going to talk about Group Action lawsuits, what they are, how they operate and the British Airways case. For anyone who wants to join the BA data breach action if they have been affected - the link is here.

If you missed it, Kingsley and I discussed COVID19 and the impact on Data Protection in Episode 17.

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