Hunton Andrews Kurth is pleased to announce the publication of Sweet & Maxwell’s fifth edition of Data Law Law and Practice, written by Rosemary Jay, Senior Consultant Attorney at Hunton Andrews Kurth. This edition has been rewritten to provide a thorough overview of the current state of data protection law in the UK and details of the relevant background context.
The introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), supplemented in the UK by the Data Protection Act of 2018 and subsequently incorporated into UK law, was the most significant change in the data protection landscape since the Data Protection Act of 1998. This new regime has already had far-reaching implications for how organizations use personal data, how individuals enforce their rights, and how regulators ensure that personal data is protected. Given these far-reaching changes in the privacy environment, the full and insightful commentary in this latest edition of Rosemary Jay’s book has been eagerly awaited.
With contributions from major thought leaders in the industry, the book covers the GDPR, its application in the UK, the implementation of Directive 2016/680 (Law Enforcement Directive) and the new data protection regime governing UK intelligence, as well as data protection and electronic communications and regulations Revised rules for monitoring business communications. The effects of Brexit are also considered throughout the book.
