The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued guidance on a number of issues arising from staff working from home. These include The ICO’s regulatory approach during the coronavirus public health emergency and a blog article on Video conferencing: what to watch out for.

So far as the video conferencing is concerned, concerns have been expressed in the press over the security of Zoom.  The New York Attorney General has reached an agreement with Zoom Video Communications on provision of improved privacy and security protection for the platform’s users.

The Supreme Court decision in WM Morrison Supermarkets plc v Various Claimants [2020] UKSC 12 allowing an appeal by WM Morrison Supermarkets, and holding that they were not vicariously liable for a data breach committed by a rogue employee, has received extensive coverage elsewhere.
