01 October 2019

Principal associate Rocio de la Cruz recently contributed to the September edition of the Privacy & Data Protection Journal and wrote an article on the processing of special data categories in the UK.



In the article, she explains what UK organisations, and organisations subject to the Data Protection Act 2018, must do to comply with the requirements for processing Special Category personal data.

Rocio considers the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection 2018 (the DPA) from the perspective of how they affect the assessment of the legal basis to process such data.

She also provides guidance and recommendations on what UK organisations should consider to ensure the lawfulness of their processing activities.
