UK’s first EU GDPR fine, on Doorstep Dispensaree, cut by two-thirds on appeal
MLex: A tribunal has slashed the UK’s first-ever fine imposed under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), Regulation (EU) 2016/679. Pharmacy Doorstep Dispensaree appealed its £275,000 penalty, imposed in 2019 for failing to ensure the security of personal data. The First-tier Tribunal has now said that the fine should be cut to £92,000 as the original amount was based on an inaccurate measurement of the data breach’s severity.

Global money-laundering problem still dwarfs crackdown efforts despite some momentum
MLex: While news this week that global money laundering fines in the first half of 2021 hit almost US$1bn sounds impressive, that conclusion would be misleading. The total is made up of several huge fines and a scattering of tiny ones, indicating continued patchy enforcement in many parts of the world. Efforts to stamp out dirty money flows involving financial institutions have a long way to go.

UK Finance assesses impact of thematic sanctions replacing geographic ones
UK Finance has published a blog on thematic sanctions and how they will affect sanction compliance, indicating it does not believe thematic sanctions will have a major practical impact on financial organisations. Thematic sanctions are more flexible, creating one framework for all offenders, and reducing human rights impacts on individuals within geographic sanctions, who are often already suffering.
