At the end of January 2021, we hosted our first webinar of the new year, with a focus on the data protection challenges for the year ahead. If you haven’t watched it, you can view the webinar here. To date, this has been viewed more than 250 times!  
In our last webinar for 2021, Kellie will reflect on how accurate the predictions were and give a sneak preview of what she believes the challenges for 2022 will be. A reminder of the predictions:
  1. Public awareness about privacy: In particular the increase in individuals seeking compensation for misuse of their personal data.
  2. Increased global data protection legislation: China, India, and Australia have new/updated data protection regimes in the pipeline.
  3. International Data Transfers: the EU is expected to finalise updated standard contract clauses in early 2021. There remains uncertainty around the impact of the Schrems II decision, what should organisations be reviewing to ensure their transfers are legitimate?
  4. UK Adequacy Decision: The UK-EU Trade Agreement set out a 4-month timeline for an adequacy decision to make. What preparations should organisations make to ensure their EU to UK data transfers continues?
  5. Protecting Against Ransomware: The number of ransomware attacks has increased during 2020 and is expected to continue to increase throughout 2021, what can organisations do to reduce the risk of such an attack?
This will be a highly energetic and fun webinar. If you are unable to join, the session will be recorded and made available on our website ( and our YouTube channel.
Please note that this webinar will be taking place on Thursday, 25th November at 12-noon. This is a change to our regularly Friday lunch and learn timeslots.
