The last week has been really busy day for our managing director and data protection expert, Ibrahim Hasan, with a frenzy of media interviews. Well not quite a “frenzy” but three is a start!

Ibrahim was first interviewed on BBC Radio 5 live’s Drive programme by Anna Foster.
He spoke about the rules requiring restaurants and pubs to keep contact details of customers and the GDPR/DPA consequences if things go wrong. He emphasised the important of business owners complying with data protection laws and educating their staff on their responsibilities.

You can listen again here (14.35 onwards). More on customer contact tracing data in our blog.

Later in the day, Ibrahim had his first live television interview which was broadcast on BBC News 24 and BBC News Worldwide. He was asked about the new NHS Contact Tracing App and the privacy implications. He also talked about the consequences of misusing personal data. We are waiting to receive the recording of this interview. In the meantime you can read the feedback on our social media channels (LinkedIn and Twitter). You can also read more about the previous version of the NHS contact Tracing App in our blog.

Finally, on 18th September, Ibrahim appeared on BBC Radio Berkshire to talk about the same issue. This followed a lady who was contacted by a bus driver for a date using her T and T details!

These and other GDPR developments will be discussed in detail by Ibrahim in our online GDPR update workshop next week.

    Excellent discussion and analysis of a topical issue. Ibrahim has lucidly dissected the legal issues surrounding the misuse of personal data.
