In February's edition of the publication, we lead with the news that political agreement has been reached in the EU on the new EU-US 'Privacy Shield' - the potential replacement for Safe Harbor. But, as the legal experts we spoke to were quick to point out, the full text of the new arrangement is not ready yet - and even when it is, we await an assessment from the Article 29 Working Party on the Privacy Shield's legality.
Nick Fenner and Emma Fox of TLT Solicitors LLP talk us through recent steps taken by the European Commission to edge closer to the goal of the digital single market. Nick and Emma's article includes comment on the new online contract rules, the Online Dispute Resolution tool, and the draft EU Accessibility Act.
In Pakistan, tension has mounted over the government's attempts to introduce a new cyber security regime through its Electronic Crimes Bill, a piece of legislation that has drawn criticism from privacy campaigners.
