  • Our most requested slide of 2014-2015 | Castlebridge Associates - This post is a short one we have prepared ahead of Data Privacy Day. Our most requested slide in Data Protection presentations since 2014 has been our "One Slide Summary of the GDPR". It has been through a few iterations but still stands up to the task of explaining how the different elements of the GDPR interact. We've extended it to include our 11-box model for Information Governance and Information Quality to show how the requirements of the GDPR relate to key governance areas in the organisation.

  • The difference between Information and Data | Castlebridge Associates - Back in February my brother asked us to take a look at some data for his Resident's Association. The data related to AirBnB listings in Dublin city centre. We don't do a lot of pro-bono work, but I'd forgotten to get him a Christmas present or a birthday present and was feeling guilty so I agreed to look at the data. First of all, it was just data. A comma separated variable file with a munge of text and numeric data. Scrolling and filtering would provide some answers, but they wouldn't spark a discussion. In my experience this is a common complaint. To paraphrase the Ancient Mariner - "Data, Data, Everywhere...." What we did didn't take very long. But it does highlight the importance of information-centric thinking rather than technology or tool driven thinking when it comes to data and analysis. It also highlights the need to think about how information will be presented. Handing someone a spreadsheet of data may not result in actionable insight or intelligence.
  • Privacy Shield or Fig Leaf? | Castlebridge Associates - A deal has now been done on Safe Harbo(u)r - EU/US Privacy Shield. Below we summarise some of the key points from the press conference and give some initial analysis. Note that there is no agreed text of the agreement available, and no detail on any enabling instruments. In many respects this should be seen as a holding position pending the final final actual agreement. On the question of Mass Surveillance US has provided letters from the Office of Director of National Intelligence confirming they do not conduct indiscriminate mass surveillance. US Government has conducted reform of mass surveillance practices and legislation. Under the new arrangement a Special Ombudsperson will be created in State Dept to follow up on queries from EU Data Protection Authorities regarding surveillance activities. There will be Redress mechanisms for EU citizens (we assume via the Judicial Redress Act in the US - but that has had amendemnts added that may weaken its effectiveness in this context). The operation of this governance structure and the enforceability of the letters are a precondition of the adequacy agreeement. This appears to introduce potentially significant increase in transparency and safe guards for EU citizens. The EU Commission makes it a precondition of the adequacy agreement that the undertakings given in this context are upheld. However, it remains to be seen how independent or effective this ombudsman will be and what "teeth" they will have. However, the hesitancy of the EU Commission to pull the plug on the old Safe Harbo(u)r itself until the CJEU did it for them raises a question of how effective or dissuasive that precondition would be in practice - would the Commission ever pull the plug on Privacy Shield if it was not getting answers, and what legal weight should be attached to "letters of comfort" ? The European Parliament was unimpressed and many remain unconvinced.

  • Allie - Great Sound Amplifiers!!!!

    Great little sound amplifier! I've bought 6 of them in the past, and they work great (so the person I buy it for loves it and says "Could you pick me up another one for so-and-so?" which is why I've ordered so many!). The really nice thing about them is that there's no battery to put in - those annoying TINY batteries that are so difficult for the elder and visually impaired to see and get into that tiny little slot! You just put them on the charger at night and you're good to go! They don't take long to charge up, maybe an hour or so, but it's fine to leave them on the charger overnight. One works in either ear, they're comfortable and for the price and fast shipping, they're excellent!! HIGHLY recommend!!!

    This grease treatment is wonderful for my granddaughter and me it do wonders so if you need your hair to grow use this.

  • Cathy S. - Great Stuff!!

    First used this last fall on deck railings (painted white), trex decking, and concrete wall all covered with green algae. Within a few weeks I could see a big difference, but this spring the full effect is obvious. The concrete wall, which was worst, has no alge at all. There are a few spots on the railings that we obviously missed, but today I sprayed those spots.

  • Robert J. Hendrickson - Great Deal......

  • Hannah Gruney - It works!

    I have a new pond and a bunch of ducks. My moron pond installer did not share with me what seems to be common knowledge: Pond + ducks + sun = algae and lots of it. I dumped the entire gallon in the pond and within a few days the algae was dead. I did get some gross green-grey foam on the pond for the first couple of days. It is safe for the ducks as well. I used it over a month ago and everything is still good. The water is not yet crystal clear, but it is a lot better than before.
