The Russian data protection law: Is there a risk for non-compliance during the pandemic?

PrivacyRules local expert, Sergey Medvedev from Gorodissky & Partners, elaborates on the risks related to the non-compliance with the Russian data privacy law in these complex times.

You may wonder if the Russian data protection law must be complied with even during the Covid-19 times, the answer is yes! Beware that the Russian data protection law has been recently amended giving higher powers to the Russian IT Regulator (Roskomnadzor) which can now impose truly heavy fines against non-compliant companies. Worth noting, the Roskomnadzor can now start random inspections and, if the inspection reveals that a company is non-compliant, the Regulator can initiate an administrative proceeding before the competent Court without the need of a prosecutor.

The sanctions can be of civil, administrative or criminal nature. An example of a heavy sanction is the blockage of the website for an online business or an e-commerce company (which is what happened in the LinkedIn case). Furthermore, in certain cases fines are imposed on the basis of the number of the employees the sanctioned company has.

To know more about the risks related to the complexity of the Russian privacy regulations, watch this video and contact Sergey for guidance and advice!

Flash News from Indonesia “Whether Covid-19 can be considered as force majeure or not?”

The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, issued a Presidential Decree No. 12/2020 declaring Covid-19 pandemic as a Public Health Emergency situation. Then, the Government has released Regulation No. 21 of 2020 on Massive Social Restrictions (“GR 21/2020) allowing the Regional Government to implement Massive Social Restrictions.

On April 09, 2020, the Governor of DKI Jakarta has issued Regulation No. 33/2020 on Implementation of Massive Social Restrictions in Jakarta.

In this pandemic situation many business activities are disrupted and stop operating. For this reason, they are assessing their existing contracts to determine whether the pandemic of Covid-19 can be considered as force majeure or not.

Our Indonesian expert from SIP Law Firm , R. Yudha T. W., elaborates on the recent updates of its country and explains how Indonesia is handling the concept of force majeure.

The Morrisons case: When is an employer liable for data breaches by its employees?

The Morrisons case: When is an employer liable for data breaches by its employees?

❗Flash Briefing from the UK❗

Kim Walker of Shakespeare Martineau discusses the UK Supreme Court’s important recent judgement clarifying the scope of the principle of “vicarious liability”: when is an employer strictly liable for the wrongdoings of its employees even though the employer is entirely blameless?

➡️ The case is of particular interest to anyone advising on dataprotection, because the employee, in this case, had maliciously and wrongfully uploaded payroll data of 100,000 employees to the internet, potentially exposing Morrisons to huge claims for compensation from the employees involved.

➡️ The High Court and the Court of Appeal in the UK had previously found Morrisons vicariously liable for the rogue employee’s actions.

The discussion includes:

❓How do you decide what an employee’s “field of activities” are?

❓When is the wrongful action “closely connected” to the field of activities?

❓Are the employee’s motives relevant?

❓Why was the previous leading case (Mohamud v Morrisons) different?

❓What are the practical implications in the field of data protection?

Privacy and politics: The AggregateIQ case - Implications for digital advertisers and data processors in Canada and a comparison to the UK ICO’s case under the GDPR

Lyndsay Wasser of Canadian law firm McMillan and Kim Walker of UK law firm Shakespeare Martineau discuss the recent decision by the Privacy Commissioners in Canada that Canadian data analytics company AggregateIQ used voter personal data to target political advertising in breach of Canadian federal and provincial data protection laws. The UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) ruled in 2018 that AggregateIQ failed to comply with the GDPR in several respects when it provided data analytics services to political parties during the UK's EU referendum in 2016. The decisions are evidence of global privacy regulators' continuing concern about the way in which personal information can be used for voter manipulation.

Lyndsay discusses the Commissioners' clarification of the requirement for service providers to ensure that customers who provide personal data for them to process have received consents from individuals as required by Canadian law and the steps that they are required to take in order to verify that adequate consents have in fact been obtained. Kim discusses the different approach taken by the ICO under the GDPR where consent is only one of several lawful bases for processing data and discusses the ICO's particular focus on AggregateIQ's failure to process the data fairly and transparently, so the individuals had no knowledge or expectation of how their data would be used.

Lyndsay and Kim then draw conclusions from the two decisions and propose practical steps for businesses to take, particularly those involved in digital marketing and the adtech industry.

The Podcast's video is available on YouTube here.

Our UK and Hong Kong experts, Kim Walker and Padraig Walsh, discuss with us on the recent data breaches involving respectively the two Airlines of Cathay Pacific (violating 9.4 million personal data) and British Airways (disclosing 500 K customers' information).

The discussion focuses on the different approach of the Hong Kong's Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data ant the UK's Information Commissioner Office resulting no fines in the first case and an intention of £183m fine in UK. 

How is it possible to have so different results? Is that difference just a result of the GDPR presence in UK and absence in HK? 

Discover it with us in this great podcast!!
