They discuss 3 recent UK cases – Google which involved the misuse of data in the so-called ‘Safari Workaround’ and two data breach cases involving Morrisons and British Airways (BA).
They consider the likelihood of civil actions or ‘Group Litigation Orders’ in the UK in addition to regulatory fines.
