Friday Scribbles: What’s Happening This Week at Scribe
Our thoughts, learning, article curation, and other goings-on.

This week, aside from that little Senate hearing yesterday, privacy has been getting our attention. The UK Information Commissioner’s Office issued the first formal enforcement action under the General Data Protection Regulation and the UK Data Protection Act. The alleged offender? A Canadian data analytics firm that studies data to direct online advertisers to voters. The action demands that the firm stop “processing any personal data of UK or EU citizens obtained from UK political organizations or otherwise for the purposes of data analytics, political campaigning or any other advertising purposes.”

Meanwhile, there was another hearing this week on Capitol Hill that you may not have heard about: privacy experts testified before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on the possibility of a national privacy law, in the wake of California’s passage of its own data privacy law over the summer.
