As we wrap up 2017, it's worth looking back at what has been a very busy year for privacy pros.

But not everything in 2017 was GDPR. The role Brexit will play in U.K. privacy law and the deregulatory efforts of the Trump administration have prompted a paradigm shift in 2017. And who could forget the fallout from the Equifax and Uber breaches? In this post for Privacy Perspectives, Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, looks back at this frenetic year in privacy.
