DPO Dispatch

August 5 · Issue #6 · View online
A weekly summary of important developments in the world of privacy and data protection for practicing privacy professionals.

Thanks for subscribing to the DPO Dispatch. It was another busy week in the world of privacy and data protection. Here’s a quick summary of the top stories you’ll find below:
  • The top story this week was the CJEU’s decision in the so-called Fashion ID case, in which it held website operators were joint controllers of data collected and transmitted to Facebook via the Facebook like button. I pushed out a rare mid-week update / case summary that highlights the import of that decision earlier this week, and have added some more coverage below.
  • The Finnish government issued a revised (EU Council) proposal for the e-Privacy Regulation with some amendments concerning electronic communication content, data & metadata, and further processing of metadata.
  • The US CLOUD Act is not sitting well with the EU and Australia, raising further conflict of laws issues for companies needing to comply with it
  • Greenstein looks to fortify Privacy Shield as the data transfer mechanism comes under attack in the EU courts
  • The Irish Data Protection Commission expects a decision by the end of 2019 on its probe into Facebook’s potential GDPR violations.
  • Greek DPA issues 150K euro fine against PwC for GDPR violations for its collecting of its employees’ data
  • NIST Releases Draft Guidance for IoT security
  • The Five Eyes nations meet to discuss backdoor access to encrypted messaging platforms like WhatsApp - an outrageously dangerous proposal that makes us all less secure, and seemingly can’t be killed
  • European Union regulators have increased their focus on the digital advertising industry, the Wall Street Journal reports.
  • Apple suspends Siri response grading in response to privacy concerns - maybe they got our newsletter last week? 😉
  • Microsoft Adds IoT Device Protection to Azure Security Center
  • Canada: Consultation submissions on transfers for processing for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner are due this upcoming week (August 6)
  • New platform helps privacy pros compare tech vendor solutions 
  • IAPP releases new white paper on databases for privacy pros needing some help understanding the technology behind distributed systems today.
  • Microsoft acquires data privacy and governance service BlueTalon
Have a great week!
