The guide is a very welcome publication and brings together commentary on data protection legislation from a variety of sources. There are a number of contributors to the guide, all of whom are highly regarded and active in their field and this is apparent through their practical and insightful application of data protection law throughout the guide. The foreword from the information commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, adds further weight to the guide which, as the
synopsis suggests, is an invaluable handbook for all data protection practitioners. * David White, New Law Journal *
