Issue 17 of our Intellectual Property and IT Law Update is now live for subscribers to our online services. Authored by William Fry solicitors, this update contains in-depth guidance on data protection and GDPR enforcement.

'The DPC also noted an increase in the use of social engineering and phishing attacks to gain access to the ICT systems of businesses. Noting that while many organisations initially put in place effective ICT security measures, there remains an issue around the review and monitoring of the measures initially implemented. The DPC reiterated the need for organisations to undertake periodic reviews of their security measures and implement comprehensive training plans for employees to include refresher training, with an emphasis on awareness programmes aimed at mitigating the risks posed by an ever-evolving threat.'
