Two years may have passed since enforcement of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation began, but regulators are just wrapping up the first wave of investigations. Change comes slowly in the realm of data privacy, and it is still too soon to try to improve the regulation.
GDPR told companies that regulators would be reviewing their data collection and usage practices, and if they don't like what they find, the fines are coming. France is taking the first step against Google.
More than six months after the European data privacy regulation went into effect, we still don’t know how effective GDPR will be at protecting data privacy.
GDPR mandates organizations self-report data breaches, and in the two months since the new privacy regulation went into effect, the number of reports have surged.
