Solicitor in the data protection and information law team
I am a solicitor in the data protection and information law team. My work includes advising and delivering training on all data-protection related matters as well as drafting and reviewing guidance, policies, procedures and agreements for dealing with data subject access requests, breaches, data sharing, co-controlling and processing under the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018.
I trained and qualified as an employment lawyer at Gowling WLG, I then moved to Anthony Collins Solicitors in June 2018.
The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has recently made some noteworthy changes to its guidance around data subject access requests (DSARs).
On 8 July, news broke of the staggering fine of more than £183m the ICO intended to levy against British Airways as a result of a hack that took place in 2018, compromising 500,000 customers' data.
Our Data Protection and Information Law team found that the status of housing associations concerning the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) has been a hot topic with clients in recent weeks.
In what has been a veritable deluge of data protection-related developments, we now have in our midst, a brand-new, homegrown iteration of data protection legislation; the Data Protection Act 2018.
