The Blue Cross Medal is open to pets that have done something brave, life-changing partnerships, assistance animals and serving or working animals. Deadline for entries is February 15 2019. Hayley says: “Pets have always played a wonderful part in my life and I’ve been grateful to each and every one of them for it.

Picture: AFP It’s difficult to determine how and where companies like Facebook went wrong, which makes regulation challenging. By Josephine Wolff What happens to the companies that allow our personal data to be stolen? In most cases, nothing. Sometimes there is a short-lived flurry of bad publicity, a brief dip in stock prices, a class-action lawsuit or a Federal Trade Commission investigation that leads to a token settlement or fine. Facebook is unlikely to face any serious, long-term consequences as a result of a security breach it announced last month, which exposed the account data of 50 million users. At first glance, the lack of consequences that companies face for data breaches might seem to be a clear problem and something that can be easily remedied through heavy regulation like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.

Mr McKillen delivered a knockout blow as the decision to transfer his loans was taken before Nama was formally established. The Supreme Court also ruled that Mr McKillen (and other borrowers) had the right to fair procedures including the right to be heard in respect of Nama's exercise of its discretion to acquire bank assets. Yesterday, the ghost of Dellway loomed large in courtroom six in the Four Courts as Independent News & Media (INM) sought to deliver its own knockout blow to a bid by the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) to have High Court inspectors appointed to investigate the affairs of the country's largest publisher. INM, which employs 815 and publishes the Irish Independent, has - along with its share price - been reeling since last March when the publicly listed company notified the market of the ODCE's court action which has uncovered concerns about a range of issues including a suspected data breach and potential violations of "insider information" … [Read more...] about Analysis: Publisher claims ODCE kept it out of the loop on data breach
