“The Data Brief” – 5 Essex Chambers monthly Data Protection Bulletin – Issue 2

11 June 2021

This is a new monthly newsletter from the Data Protection and Information Law Team at 5 Essex Chambers which is intended to be quickly and easily digestible. These are fast developing areas which permeate many legal disciplines. It is not our intention to go into detail, but rather to highlight recent decisions and developments that will be of practical assistance to those with an interest in data protection and information law.

Members of 5 Essex Chambers regularly appear in courts and tribunals, including the Supreme Court, in some of the highest-profile cases involving data protection and information law. Current and recent cases include the first legal challenge in the world on the use of automatic facial recognition technology by the policeSir Cliff Richard’s privacy claim against the BBC and the appeals brought by Privacy International concerning Covert Communications Data Capture devices.

We hope you will find this newsletter useful and share it with others who might also do so. As we publish our first few editions, we would welcome feedback as to the content and format.
