The Data Brief – website launched

14 October 2021

5 Essex Chambers has launched The Data Brief, a monthly bulletin from the Data Protection and Information Law Team of barristers at 5 Essex Chambers. It is edited by Francesca Whitelaw KC, Aaron Moss and John Goss, with contributions from the whole team. It is intended to be quickly and easily digestible.  The Data Brief was launched in May 2021 and six editions have been published by email to date.

The archive of previous editions is on the our website.

From national security to cyber security, 5 Essex Chambers’s Data Protection and Information Law team regularly provides advice and advocacy in matters relating to information and data protection law, with extensive experience acting for government, police forces, businesses and regulators.

We understand the sensitivities surrounding confidential or personal data, and the need to handle these matters with utmost discretion and integrity. Many of our barristers are security cleared up to and including Developed Vetting, and regularly work with highly sensitive material throughout the public and private sectors.
