Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon issued her second Annual Report on 26th June 2016. The DPC’s Annual Report (‘the Report’) presents the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (‘ODPC’) with a yearly opportunity to highlight key messages to organisations around data protection compliance, while also providing an insight into how the resources of the ODPC have been deployed in the previous year. This year, the Report seems to have attracted less attention than usual, as developments around the Privacy Shield (see the article on pages – 7) and the Standard Contractual Clauses litigation (see the news item on page 1) tended to dominate in the media at the time the Report was published. Below is a flavour of some of the insights and trends which arise from the 2015 Report.
