Data breach management: what arises from the 2019 sweep results.

The Global Privacy Enforcement Network’s annual survey focused on the management of data breaches by public and private entities; the 2019 sweep survey involved 16 Authorities for the processing of personal data, including the Italian one. The investigation has taken into account various aspects of the management of a data breach, including how the reports/notifications and the implementation of the counter-measurements to prevent the repetition of the breach were managed.  The Study revealed that only a few entities have an in-depth knowledge of data breach management.

EDPB and COVID: experts at work on geolocation and scientific research.

During the last plenary session held on April 7, 2020, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) entrusted its expert committees with the task of identifying and developing the relevant principles regarding the processing of personal data in the context of the containment of the COVID-19 virus through the approval of two specific mandates, concerning respectively the tracking and geolocation tools and the processing of health data for research purposes.

EDPS: ok to mobile tracking with adequate safeguards.

In the midst of the emergency linked to the spread of the COVID-19 virus (known to most as “coronavirus”), the search for possible solutions for the containment of the pandemic has now taken on a supranational dimension, recording the first contributions from European institutions. The possibility of monitoring population movements through the analysis of data collected by mobile communication devices, in order to verify the effectiveness of the restrictive measures imposed and the identification of connections between movement trends and contagions, is undoubtedly one of the options on the table. The European Data Protection Supervisor (“EDPS”), consulted by the European Commission, has therefore identified some elements to be taken into account in the implementation of such solutions.
